A Guest Post in honor of Mother’s Day-from “The Mysterious G”
Holidays are complicated for many people and Mother’s Day tends to be one of those “complicated” holidays for us. Kath did not have a “dream” Mother. She had a complicated and complex relationship that ended long before her Mother’s death. She does not enjoy celebrating this day. Her daughter knows not to send a card or flowers or anything else on this day. She sent a fitting text this morning that made Kath laugh.
I on the other hand have a “dream” Mother. My Mother loves to celebrate this day and we enjoy celebrating her and all the love she has brought into each of our lives. As much as I love celebrating my own Mom, I am not a Mom. It’s a difficult subject. I would have loved to have been a Mother, but that apparently wasn’t meant to be. So this morning as we sat down at a restaurant for breakfast I was thrown by the waitress who was so happy to wish us a Happy Mother’s Day. I did not appreciate the sentiment. Why would you say that to someone you don’t know? If you don’t know someone, you should stick to the standard, Hello.
Just my opinion.
