All the mums? I only have one.
And I do not really like one designated day a year to acknowledge her.
I myself am a mother too.
I feel it is a day which has been given way too much value and puts pressure on people to perform, just like valentines, easter, christmas, all the holidays ever devised. They are days created by man.
And if we have high expectations, bubbles get burst. I hate these kind of days. They need to be irradicated.
I sometimes forget and then scramble around and panic to find a card to send, then rush to the post office, because If I do not send a card, then someone gets disappointed and sarcastic remarks are made. And guilt trips are put on me. or they begin to feel crappy if someone asks them oh what did you get for mothers day, and they say nothing, and so the embarrassment for them ensues.
Tell me none of you aren't put on guilt trips if you do not live up to the expectation of others, if you haven't bought a card for your mother, or you don't make the phone call and then someone says something It is so much pressure and frankly we don't need it.
And what about those who have lost a loved one, have lost a mother, and there is all this hub bub over it. What about mothers who have lost children, and they do not have anyone to appreciate them.
This day sucks for them doesn't it?
I have two sons, and I really do not get bent out of shape if they do not do anything for me. I may get a phone call, I do not expect a card.
There are 364 other days of the year that love and appreciation can be shown for the special woman in your life.
I wish you all a nice time with your moms, mums, mothers, But make sure it is not done out of obligation because the 'day' says it's the day to have hearts, flowers, love and goodness. It can be done anytime.
