Taking a week off.

I’m having a hard time right now. With the anniversary of my mother’s death this week, I am finding myself with just no drive to do anything short of the essentials (as in feeding my kids and maybe bathing regularly). So I’m trying to allow myself this time to just be sad. After all, it’s a sad time. So I hope you understand that I’ve decided to not post any entries here for the rest of this week. I’m just too tired. I’ll do my best to stay up on comments. I will be back next week, hopefully feeling back to my normal self.

Thanks for understanding.

    Hi Bonnie!
    as you have said, “Life is to short”
    especially so for some ;(
    my mum died at 42 I was still a kid and never really
    got to know her.
    but then, it really doesn’t matter when, does it.
    It would always be as hard.

    I’m right there with you. Anniversary of my cousins murder is this week…

    Everyone deserves a break – relax and get your body and mind into a good place again. We’ll be here when you get back.

    I know! I’m feeling much better emotionally, but got hit by a stupid head cold. I’m going to try to get a couple of posts ready for the rest of this week. And then I am going to nap.

    I am so sorry to hear about your mother. :( That’s so sad. I totally understand. Even a year later, the pain must still be there. Hang in there.

    Glad you are feeling a bit better. I was feeling down that week too coincidentally. My deceased mom’s birthday fell that week. Missing her. I think it’s really important to honor our mothers always, even when they are gone and to let ourselves grieve when we need to.

    It really is. I struggle with it, though, because it’s the opposite of what society expects of us. Even after all these years of knowing that society’s influence is mostly bullshit, I still struggle with it. I hope you are more at peace this week. Thank you for your support. :)

    So sorry to hear about your mama, Bonnie. I’m glad that you were able to take some time to yourself in your mourning.
