I lost my wife 4 months ago, our daughter is 15. Both sides of our family invited me to Mothers day dinner. I do not know if we could handle it. I dont know if I could handle it. Just watching everyone celebrating I dont know what to do. I am not trying to be selfish. I have yet to ask my daughter what she wants to do. What I want to do is run away for the weekend. I do not want people not to celebrate because it is their day and I know they will want us around but I do not think I am strong enough to watch. I have been told to celebrate her life on Mothers day but that only reminds me of what I lost. How unfair life is, how much of a tragedy it is. I know everybody wants me to be ok and they think I am, I put up a good front but I do not think I can pull this weekend off. Just writing this is very emotional to me and I dont know why. How am I going to handle Sunday? Thank you in advance for your advice.
