Happy Mother’s Day to all of us….the good and the bad



If your mother has passed, I am sorry. It must be a tough day.

If you are estranged from your mother, I’m sorry. It must be a tough day.

If your mother was abusive, I’m really sorry. It’s a tough day.

If you had the kind of mother that loved you and was there for you, I am happy for you.

If you are a mother and your kids will recognize the day in some way, good for you.

If you have lost a child, you have my sympathy and prayers.

If you have children that could seem to care less, I’m sorry.

I just couldn’t let Mother’s Day go by. Without raining on the parade, I think it is important to remember that it is a not a good day for everyone. Do you know someone who could use a hug or a prayer today?

I am lucky. Although my mother used a belt on me and burned me with cigarettes, she was kind enough to teach me one thing. How to be a mother. I simply did the opposite of what she did. And my kids turned out okay.

My kids and husband will be making scrambled eggs and bacon and pie (what a combo!) for my Mother’s Day dinner. They will likely have balloons, flowers, and cards. So I am one who is fortunate,

But you don’t forget. And you don’t celebrate. And when I hear someone speak lovingly about their mom, I am jealous. No matter how old I get, I doubt that will ever change.

hugs for all who need it today,
