I'm not too sure if Mother's Day is to blame or not, but yesterday I completely fell apart. I cried almost all evening. Up until then I had tried to stifle my tears and not think about things but I finally allowed myself to do so yesterday. I was left physically exhausted but somehow relieved. Today is more of the same. The guilt/loneliness/feelings of failure are all hitting me pretty hard again. In the middle of my tearfest the funeral home called to inform me that Gracie's death certificate is ready to be picked up. Get this, she said they're open tomorrow if I want to come by. I can't imagine a better way to spend my first Mother's Day.

My MIL is taking her mother to dinner and she invited me and dh. We will go, but I'm sure I'm going to burst into tears at some point during the meal.

(((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))))) to all the mommies out there.

This is my first Mother's Day ever and my daughter is not here to celebrate it with me. She was born still 3 months ago today, so its a double whammy. I have found the days leading up to today, and today extrodinarily difficult. All of the TV commercials, stores and facebook posts are enough to send me to tears. Everyone says I am a mother, which I agree I am, but it feels incredibly hollow without my darling girl.

I lit this candle for us today. Won't make us feel any better, but a small token anyway. It will stay lit for 48 hours from right now. ... d=13302440
