No Mom On Mother’s Day

I’m already tired of the commercials and they’ve only just begun. Mother’s Day is this Sunday and without fail, our televisions and stores are full of reminders of this special day. 

One thought on “No Mom On Mother’s Day

    Your blog spoke straight to my heart. I lost my mother to Pancreatic Cancer in 2011 and my Father two years later in a horrible accident. I cannot bear to watch TV with its build up to Mother’s day. I avoid the stores and try to stay out of conversations about how people spent that day with their Mother. I envy and yes sometimes hate those daughters who are able to enjoy their mothers who are in their 80s or 90s. When I see other women enjoying a day out together it brings me to tears. I see objects in shop windows I could surprise my Mother with, buying bouquets of flowers on a whim that she would tenderly place in water, cozy coffee shops to chat and gossip in, but most of all I miss the unconditional love that was offered to me and that sometimes I was too stupid to realize how great a gift it was. Her voice and laugh is permanently etched in my mind.
