Dear fellow Bees,
I just have to vent for a minute…
Right now I am feeling completely overwhelmed.
With the wedding,
Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend and this is yet another painful remainder that I don’t have a mother in my life. She passed away in 2005.
I miss her so much!!
I wish she was here with me!
Planning my wedding with me!
Ooohhh-ing and aaahhh-ing over my dress with me…..
My heart is breaking.
Over and over again.
I feel so alone.
Right now I am just so sad.

I’m so sorry girl. I lost my mom in 2004 and didn’t have her for my wedding planning. I always hate this time of year because my mom’s b-day was 5/11 so it was always near or on Mother’s Day.

@MrsJoyful80: Not having your mom with you at such an emotional time is very difficult.
It’s very important for you remember that your mom would be so happy and excited
for you. When I miss my mom I try to think about what she would say or do for me.
It really does helps sometimes to remember the happiness and love. Reaching out
to family and maybe even a friend of hers could be of comfort to you also.
After 17 years I still get choked up when thinking of my mom. Be happy, that is
what she would want for you.

Does your mom have a sister that you could turn to for planning things with? It might be a comfort, if so you should reach out for support from her family and your fiancé. That’s what family is for.

Thank you bees…
I just needed to get those words out.
I miss her so.
Unfortunately, I have no other female relatives that could “stand in” for my mom so I am left to just try to make it through by myself.

Such a sad topic and horrible feeling. I lost my mother in 2008 and miss her everyday. I feel like wedding planning brings out more pain because I wish she was here to help. I’m trying to incorporate things that remind me of her in the planning and design of certain aspects. Keep your head up, try to remember all the happy times.
