Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers in the USA who may see my blog and this post. I hope you are treasured in your lives and maybe a little extra pampered today.
For those mothers outside of the US let me start by saying here in the States we so endear our mothers and the sanctity of motherhood that we set aside a special day of the year just to remind us to be grateful for the mothers in our lives. I imagine it is a bit confusing to some of you,mi know it always confused me.
I could say more but I don’t want this to turn into a rant about the weirdly ironic nature of my country. Just know that I am not the only one who has noticed these things.
I usually spend Mother’s Day calling and texting the various mothers in my life as well as from my life. I still text my former mother-in-law regularly because though she did spawn my ex wife, my former-in-law (as I like to call her) is not responsible for what my ex did to me or how she treated me. I have sent emails, even a Hallmark or two, to the ex on Mother’s Day but I am always conflicted. On the one hand she did participate in creating the three greatest joys of my life, my sons, and on the other hand she is the same ghoulish monster who destroyed our family with her selfish choices.
I’m sure you see my dilemma.
Anyway happy Mother’s Day to all mothers everywhere, even the ghoulish ones. I hope you are all loved and have peace in your hearts and in your lives.
