Nothing but love for all the moms.
I lost my mom 14 years ago in April to a stroke. Her birthday was 07 May and now it’s Mother’s Day.
I was a total momma’s boy. Used to hang out with my mom while she worked. We shared similar taste in so many things.
As I got older, and busy with life, it was easy to brush her off. She insisted when I had stuff to do, that I should go do it. I was still around for a visit many days of the week and was good to her. That didn’t stop the overwhelming feeling of guilt that weighed on me for years after her death.
Last time I spoke to her, I was at work in a truck. It was loud, late at night, and I was tired. Didn’t want to hold my cell phone so I told her I would talk to her the next day.
No matter how you feel about your mom. Whether your relationship is solid and happy or tattered and traumatic, you need to let your mom know you love her. The sacrifice of a woman to create a life (your life) deserves acknowledgement. Everything after that, which she altruistically provided for you, should earn her more than one day a year of obligatory worship.
I am so happy to hear that Momma Lar is doing better. Happy that you get to have more time. This is unfortunate, but let it be a reminder to all of you to show your moms some love.
Don’t ever miss an opportunity.
