Mothers Day Back Home

Mother's Day is here and my mind is flooded with memories of Mama. I've finally moved back home to NYC and oddly enough it's in the neighborhood where mama was born.

As I walk around and visit old familiar places, I continue to unpack things that remind me of mama, my family and my roots. The last few months I've been consumed with the process of readjusting back to my life in NYC. So writing about mama and sharing our experiences was just too emotional for me. I needed to let go for awhile until I was ready.

Since it's Mother's Day, I need to embrace it. I'm grateful to Mama and all the other "mothers" in my life that helped mold me and get me to where I am today. I love and miss them all.

If I could offer any advice or suggestions to those dealing with Alzheimers, it would be to call your mother. Or better yet visit your mother, give her a hug and say I love you. No matter what she will "get it" on some level and hopefully you'll get a smile from her as I did. And that's what Mothers Day is all about... being grateful and showing love. I wish everyone a very Happy Mothers Day.
