Two weeks ago today, May 13th, the saddest day of my life, I lost my gorgeous mother. An incredible woman, wife, mother, grandmother and friend and we are all completely lost without her. I don't know how I got here.. Losing and then trying to bury someone during this time was traumatic. The aftermath is just emptiness. No hugs from friends, get togethers to help pull you through. Just 2 meters of loneliness and your own thoughts.. But for the first time my thoughts this morning where of happy ones. How lucky I was to have such an amazing mom. How much she lived for us 7 kids (and everyone elses) she loved children so much. How our home was filled with so much love and laughter, she really was great craic altogether.. I miss her so deeply.. Thank you to everyone who reached out, texted, sent flowers, or who was just wondering where I had gone to . Hug your loved ones a little tighter today and tell them you love them. XOXO
