It is my first Mother's Day today. I should be snuggling you and looking forward to learning your future, but instead I sit and mourn your past. I mourn the future that I will never know and I miss you so much. This rainy weather seems so appropriate for the way that I feel right now.
We went to Buckhead's for lunch today and they handed each mother a flower when they walked in the door. They didn't hand me one and it really hurt. It was just a stupid carnation but I wanted it. I wanted them to tell me happy Mother's Day and acknowledge that I was a mother too, but they never did. I wanted for your dad to stand up and tell them that they made a huge mistake and forgot to give one to me, but he can't read my mind and he never did. I just wanted for them, all of them, to know that you lived. I just wanted the chance to talk about you and it never came. I miss you so much Avery and I wish with every ounce of my being that you were here in my arms.
I love you baby,
