Tater Talks Mom

Today is my mom’s birthday. Sunday is Mother’s Day. Unfortunately, I am no longer able to go home to spend time with her. It is a hard week for me. I’m sure it is an even harder week for the family who lived with her and saw her every day. I’m not sure I will ever be the same as I was before she died. I get sad easier these days. Nostalgia creeps up on my easier these days. Our trips to Kentucky are different now. I haven’t really been back to my hometown for the past three years.  Our family get-togethers are smaller now, and not just by one person.

I wish I had gone home more as an adult. I keep saying I’m going to go home more to see my siblings now, but when you live 600 miles away it’s hard. It’s not a quick trip and I don’t work a job where vacations over a weekend are easy. I need to work harder on that.

Anyway, I’m sad today and I will be sad for a few days. I would rather be in Kentucky celebrating.

  1. I understand. It’s hard. It does get a little better, but I have to admit that Mother’s and Father’s days are just not the same now that my parents are gone. Yes, I still have a daughter, but she doesn’t always get away for Mother’s Day. I saw her this past weekend, so this weekend is not in the cards.
