Ya done good, Ma.
Not one damned thing of this is normal.
Maxwell should be the one agonizing over finals week. Not me. In fact, Maxwell should be graduating from Kent State in six days.
I should be proud of all he's done and fretting about his future. I should be bragging about him on Facebook and bombarding my loved ones with photos documenting his triumphs. In short, I should be doing regular mom stuff.
If you have a mother, please hug or call her this weekend. If you are a mother, please hug or call your children this weekend. And if you know a bereaved mother, please know that this is probably an intensively difficult time for her.
Mother's Day and graduation days are likely conspiring to undo her.
