This past Tuesday I went to go by my MIL a Mother's Day card. As soon as I saw all those cards I lost it. I couldn't open them up and choose one. I have been doing so well for weeks. At that moment all the pain came back. I knew the rest of the day would be rough.
I sent Brain a text and asked him to pick out the card this year. I told him I'd still mail it, but I couldn't read them. I'm surprised at how difficult it was to stand in the card aisle. Mom past away in April 2010. The next month I went and bought a card for my MIL. I actually did OK. I looked at only a few. I needed to choose quickly. Last year I don't remember it being too difficult. This year is a completely different story. It goes it show you you never know when it's going to hit.
So now I ache. I just want to buy her a card...
