Distractions...

On the television show The Secret Life of an American Teenager, they have the Dead Parents Club. It's a club for kids who lost one parent or another, to lean on and support each other because those who have not lost a parent do not understand how much it affects everything in your life.

Thinking back, sometimes I wish there had been such a club to join when I initially dealt with my mother's death. I think if that had been the case things likely would have been much different. There are some personal choices that I made that I regret; but keeping that in mind, I do not regret becoming the person I am now. I think I'm a better person, in general, for the things that have occured in my life.

This is coming up because I heard on the radio station that I listen to that one of the DJs recently lost his mother. It struck a chord. Almost immediately I wanted to send an email or reach out to this person, even if they are a perfect stranger, to let him know that I understand the loss of losing a loved one; especially a parent. It's amazing how, even now, things like this still continue to strike such a strong chord with me.

When I think about her most days, it's just a normal thought in passing. But today, I'm missing her to the point that it's driving me to distraction. Here's to hoping the rest of the day gets better.
