I have recently made a new friend. I’ve never had a “pen-pal” before, but I think this pretty much qualifies. He lives in Serbia, and he lost him Mom to cancer about a month ago. We email back and forth as often as we’re able, and I find myself in the position where I can offer some support. It’s funny how little advice I have for him, all I can do is really listen. And when I listen, I can hear the pain and deep sadness in his writing. His Mom must have been an amazing woman.
I lost Mom a couple of years ago now. The loss usually doesn’t have that fresh, exposed nerve feeling anymore. But It’s days like today when I wake up thinking about her and missing her right away. My Mom was also an amazing woman.
To my friend in Serbia who is struggling with finding a way to deal with this enormous hole left inside of him- To anyone that knows what it feels like to have something happen in your life, and to just want to pick up your phone and call Mom- To anyone out there that has lost their Mom…today is a day to be thankful for having someone in your life that has left such a lasting impression. Receiving a Mother’s love is a feeling that can never be replicated. It’s one of a kind and the world is a little less interesting once it’s gone.
Happy Mother’s Day to everyone. I especially want to send a Happy Mother’s Day out there to all those that are reminded on this day of how much they miss their Mom.
Happy Mother’s Day, Dacha.
