I lost my mother-in-law last September and then my own mom in December. It was very difficult - mostly the holidays. Christmas was horrible- really sad. I have a husband and five yr old and I spent the afternoon at my mom's grave. Part of me thinks how selfish- but it was where I needed to be at the time. It has gotten better- except for Mother's day of course. You never realize how much your mom does or did for you until you become a mother yourself. I thank god everyday that I had such a selfless, caring mom and also I still miss my mother-in-law and her interesting stories of way back when!
