mothers day 2015
but mothers day is a tricky day for me. first, i have to decide if it's going to be about ME or THEM. if it's about "me"...then i just want to be alone and sleep or read or do something i love. if it's about "them"...then we all do something together that's special for all of us. this year is was about them.
second, i just feel the pain of SO MANY that day. mothers day is a beautiful day all the way around for me...i have a great mom, and i am blessed to be able to be a mom. but that's not true for so many women...so many have hurt from their moms, or want to be moms, or never knew their moms, or struggle with being a mom. and i feel that pain and almost feel guilty for the day being so sweet for myself.
but...this mothers day, pat was given tickets to the Nationals game that day. so we all went!
