Mother’s Day is a tough day for me. My Mom has made some decisions in the last decade that has severed our relationship. I have been very good at blocking out all thoughts of her because it is painful. However all the Mothers Day ads remind me of what i am missing. I think this has made me more compassionate for others that grew up in a single family home. I was fortunate enough to have a close strong relationship with my Mom for the first 20 or so years of my life. I will focus on those memories and continue to pray that we may have them again in the future. But I can say that I am happy that Mothers Day is over!
