Inspire Me Monday

Welcome to Inspire Me Monday, so happy to have you here! I hope everyone had a beautiful mother’s day weekend and for those who have lost I’m sending you all the love in the world.
Sunday was a year since we lost my beautiful mom. It was a hard day and a hard week leading up. So many emotions, and so much pain but I have realized the only way through grief is to feel your way through it. Someday It will get easier but for now it’s still so raw. Her death affected me in ways I couldn’t have imagined, I know in time my mind will heal. I haven’t shared much about her passing because there was so much suffering on her end and it is something I just can’t move past. So for now I’m gratful that she is no longer suffering and I know in time things will get easier. Ray and the boys spoiled me all day after we visted her and I am forever gratful to be a mother to the most amazing 3 boys in this world.
