Mothers Day….it can be the best day of the year.
It can be the worst day of the year. Yes, it’s so tough when this day comes around and you don’t have a Mom to celebrate with. Mine has been gone for almost 25 years. Yes, she died young, very young. And it can also be the worst day if you’re longing to be a Mom and just can’t conceive. I’ve lived through that too. Although look at me now…2 beautiful daughters. So I know it’s a tough day for many and like Valentines Day there really is no escaping it. So I feel your pain and your sadness.
But for me, at least, when I became a Mom, this did turn into my most favorite day of the year…not so much because of what my girls might say and do for me but because I get to look at them and say to myself…WOW, I played a role in turning two people into giving, caring, smart young women. Yes, like so many of you I was /am the animal caretaker, the frozen food chef, financial manager, food beverage service worker, general office clerk, nurse, management analyst, child care worker, housekeeper, psychologist, bus driver, school principal, dietician/nutritionist, property manager, social worker and recreation worker . In other words, I was/am a Mom!!!
