Happy or sad Mother’s Day

Each year I get sad on holidays. It’s been my own fault as I choose to live in America, while my daughter, and family are in England.

My choice, and I accept that. I went back to England every year for 24 years. This was my promise to myself, and family.

Len had a cerebral hemorrhage, and a benign brain tumor 11 years ago, and I haven’t been since. I made an extra trip during that time for my mother’s funeral. The last time was for a short memorial for my Dad.

Now, without Len, it makes holidays even harder. I have a good life here in Florida, but can’t wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day, as many are in difficult situations, and cannot celebrate the day .

I wish some of you a wonderful Mother’s Day, and others I pray that you can get through it.


  1. Thank you for your good wishes Susie. I understand you are in a time of change at the moment. But you are a strong woman and you will get through this. And I believe you will get to see England and your family again.

  2. Yes, I will bring them over here for Len’s memorial service, but if Isobelle can’t manage the flight, then it will be my daughter and Lauren only. Then I will definitely be going back to visit with Isobelle and my son in law. No idea when.
