Mother’s Day and the period leading up to it was difficult for me and especially my son. For about 3 weeks the tv screens are a none stop stream of Mother’s Day adverts and most shops become a no go zone. If only they would invent a tv filter which you could use to block out certain words or subjects. We tried to be positive and remember the good times but its hard. It reinforces what you have just lost.
In the end we bought a Mother’s Day card and put it next to the ashes. We then spent sometime putting good memories into the memories jar. Then it was off to Toys R Us to buy some Lego (It’s one of the few shops we found without Mother’s Day references).
