I will look at the Urn in my living room.

My Mom passed Oct 9, 2017.

I feel your emptiness.

I'm sorry for both your losses. My mother is still alive but my father died in 2006. The first Father's Day was tough as were all the holidays after he died. It does get easier but there might always be a sense of melancholy on Mother's Day.

I know; it sucks. My mom passed away March 25, 2017, so this is my 2nd Mother’s Day without her.

I want to be one of those people you see at the store, buying flower bouquets & cards.

Not in the hardware store looking at “lawn memorial stakes”, no card necessary. I haven’t yet reached that point of “time healing all wounds”. In fact, I’d rather just turn back time for a little bit.

The first is always the worst.

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child--for many reasons.

This will be the 25th Mothers Day I have been without my mother. She died 26 years ago. It has gotten better with time but the sadness and emptiness are still in there. Especially now that I am an adult orphan. I seem to be able to ignore most of the commercials on tv for most of the special days geared to selling. I don't let them bum me out. Life has proceeded as it should. I buried them, not vice versa.

OP and others whose grief is fresh, I am very sorry for your moms' passings. It will get easier if you let it, I promise.

Hugs to all.

Sorry for your loss.
With that said, although I would love to, my experience can't allow me sugar coat it: It will suck, bad!
But eventually, as many follow, it'll get easier.
