To all the Mummy's out there happy muthers day.
Aww... wish I could spend Mothers' Day with my mum... :-(
I only found out recently that Mothering Sunday (the proper name for Mothers' Day) was the day in the Christian calendar when people would return to their mother church; they would be said to have "gone a mothering". (Well, I found it interesting, anyway!)
It confused me at first ... it's not mothers day here yet lol.
One thing is for sure though, I wish my mom would've spent more time with me. When I was young she was either golfing, playing Bunco, or at some fancy restaurant. Sure she did spend time with me, but that was normally when I'd come home from grade school crying because I just didn't feel like I could deal with life anymore from all the bullying. She is now in Florida and is rarely home. If only I could be padded up, acting like a little (dressed like one as well), in her arms and being accepted as her little one. If only...A little can dream, am I right?
So sorry for the confusion it muther day hear in the UK.
Didn't think about other countries.
It been well over 10 years set my mum died and I still miss her.
Ok now I crying so I stop hear.
This is a difficult day for my family. My Mum died when I was quite young, nearly 15 years ago now. But I still love and miss her very much, as all of us do. My Dad lost his Mum a few years back too, so it's a day where we all rely on the support and love we have for one another.
We always phone each other or (if possible) meet up on Mother's Day. I know I'm very fortunate to have had a good relationship with my Mum, and to have happy memories to look back on - but it can still be a bloody difficult day sometimes; especially if I'm already going through a period of low mood or stress.
Personally speaking, and please no one take this the wrong way, I would rather have memories of my mother being good to me and dead, than to remember her as I do now as someone who I can't trust or confide in. She was my hero when I was younger and that was totally shattered for me as time went on. I used to be distraught at the thought of her dying and living without her ... but now .. if it happened ... I would be sad .. but I honestly don't think it would effect me all that greatly anymore. I mean I talk to her maybe a few times a year .. and when I mean talk .. .I mean facebook with a few sentences. In the last 3 years .. I spoke with her on the phone maybe once. She claims she is too busy.
You know what we talk about? Her life and how hard life is with her very nice big house, flat screen tvs in nearly every room, and money to keep buying show and top breed Dogs from over seas.
How on earth she can sit there and complain to me about money is beyond me.
