Well, we made it through the first of many Mother's Day's without Mason. I thank God every day for the wonderful children and grandchildren I have left, not to mention the awesome husband who made them all possible! Yesterday was tough. Really tough. But I think that (when I was awake) I pulled it off quite well. Yes, I spent the majority of the day asleep, my wonderful family stating, "It's YOUR day, sleep all you want!" It was easier to sleep through it than to think and wonder what he might be doing if he were still here. But today is another day and I have to keep on keeping on. Try to help other parents going through this horrific journey and try to help the families of the children that are (thank heaven) still here with us!
It is sunny out. Not warm but nice. Like a promise that things go on and the sun will still shine even on days when my tears are flowing. I am going to go out today and run and I know that up in heaven Mason is running ahead of me shouting "hurry up Nana! You are too slow!
