Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there.
Today was probably by far the roughest day I've had.
It was emotionally draining to me.
I had to keep myself busy - grocery shopping, doing dishes, making dinner, doing laundry.
Otherwise my mind wandered.
Today I really missed Rod and felt really lonely.
I called my Mom to wish her a Happy Mother's Day and that made me feel a little better.
I guess it's just been "one of those days" where the weight of it all is being felt.
I'm sure that tomorrow will be better,
I guess I kind of got the feeling of what it is like to be a single mother on Mother's day.
Whether you are a single mother through divorce, death or temporary seperation - it's tough to be alone on Mother's Day.
And I wasn't even really alone, in the sense that no one was here, because I had eight of my children home all day.
I guess it's hard to describe what I mean.
Anyway, I hope that all you mothers out there had a wonderful day today.
