Mother’s Day from the Corner
Exploring the depth of a day
Mother’s Day, celebrated amid the joy of spring, can be a dark time for many people. For those children whose mothers have passed, and for those who are estranged from their moms, this can be a day marked by heartbreak and silence. I stirred through my memories in the middle of a hot afternoon on Mother’s Day trying to sort out the day and the loss that defines it. My mother had passed away five years ago. I can’t believe it has been that long.
