My mother died almost 40 years ago, so Mother's Day doesn't exactly make me warm and fuzzy inside. It makes me sad, and a little cranky. To me, it's a big, showy, cards-and-flowers, home appliance sale kind of day. It really pisses me off when I hear and see people disrespecting their moms. I never had the opportunity to share things with my mom, I only have about 6 pictures of her and my few memories. Even after so many years I still have a big hole i my heart. BUT...I am truly blessed, as I have a wonderful husband, beautiful children and grandchildren and great friends and family, and the best damn mother-in law (Charlene James) in the world. I wrote this because there are many like me who aren't feeling the hype, and it's really just another day!!!!!
