- Wedding: June 2010
Mature right? I just feel horrible today. Here’s the scoop. My Mother, who I’m very close to has been going through a rough patch. She’s overwhelmed with school (she’s going for nurtrition), she’s taking care of my 2 little brothers (10 yr and 13 yr, both in sports) and my step father is kinda sucky. A friend of hers is sick (waiting for a bone marrow transplant) and while she’s not super close to her, my mother is a sensitive person so its hard on her. And then there’s me, who insists on having her help me with the wedding. I call her all the time and she’s always so frazzled and too busy.
K, here’s why I’m a butthead: 4 months ago my Mother told me her beloved hairdresser became sick. I’m not sure what the issue was but it was bad, and it was over night and my mother was devastated. She’s a young girl and my Mother thought she was the sweetest thing. Long story short, through the wonders of Facebook, I found out she passed. I couldn’t hold it in so I called my Mom, who was studying for a test and I told her…. WHY did I tell her? She totally couldn’t focus on the test. And when I called her later that night she was sitting in her room crying (she’s got a huge heart, my Mommy), I felt HORRIBLE! I cry just thinking about it. How dumb was I? I sucked as a daughter.
Her birthday is in the end of October and I want to do something special for her. I want to make sure she knows she’s special. But we live 3 hours apart. Any ideas?
