Mother’s Day is a wonderful tribute to all the Moms who sacrifice so much every single day of the year to take care of their families. I grew up knowing my mother, but it was my grandmother who raised me. And believe me, she worked hard. She had already raised four children. She made the sacrifice of her time, effort and money to make sure that I had everything I needed. She’s been gone 17 years now and there are still days when I think to myself, “I should call Maw Maw to tell her that.”
Then there is my mother-in-law, Scott’s mom. Donna raised four boys who all grew up to be perfect gentlemen. We are blessed she is still with us & we had lunch with her today.
However, not all women are Mothers and for us that makes this day a rather hard one. If you go out on Mother’s Day, everyone assumes you need to be told “Happy Mother’s Day.” I have found that to be difficult, because if I tell them I’m not it makes them feel bad or awkward but if I just say “Thank you” then I feel bad. So mostly we just stay home.
While I do not have children, I do have furry kids that rely on me and give me lots of love. Sometimes I feel they are just as much work as children!
So regardless of your circumstances on this day, please take time for yourself and have a peaceful, beautiful Sunday afternoon.
Thank you for stopping by!
