Don’t Forget Mother’s Day

I tell the story of buying a dress for my Mother's 59th birthday. Little did I know that she would be wearing it to her funeral.

Now you may wonder why I would share such a personal tale. Because there are plenty of you who have Mothers and ignore them on Mother's Day. You're too busy to put any real time into a gift, a special thought, or card.  Maybe you throw her a gift card. I'm telling you that while you have the chance to do more than buy her flowers – DO IT. You'll be glad you did.

For there to be a shadow there must first be a light…

Mother's day is May 13th in the US.

  1. ty very much for acknowleging mother’s day and i’m glad to hear that you feel regrets about missing mother’s day,you are a true gentleman and an inspiration to others.well i’m a mother of two sons ages 27 and 24 and last year was very upsetting to me,my 24 yr old son called me on mother’s day to wish me a happy mother’s day,and i respect im for that,but my eldest son never even called me to wish me a happy mother’s i called him a few days later and told him how i felt,very hurt and his excuse was i’m sorry i forgot it was mothers day.and then a week later come to find out that him and his wife were at home on mother’s day and my son’s father whom i’m divorced from,his commonlaw wife which he was no longer with,was there for mother’s day,received flowers a card and a nice dinner.and when i questioned them on this my sons wife’s reply was so,oh well she was in other words i was straight out lied this time i was very angry,upset but most of all extremely again when i brought up theissue again he said his wife doesn’t like to come out here,i’m 2 hrs away,and i’ve lived here 6 yrs and they’ve een here 3 times,so i said you can come alone you have a car.and he said yeah i know but i just don’t like driving alonebut you know what she’s never missed her mothers mohers day either and then she had the gull to invite you ex step mother to your home,and not me your own mother.and i got nothing,not even a phone call.and now mother’s day is 3 days away this year,and i’ve not heard from him as of yet.any suggestions?tyvm for reading this.

  2. Get more facts. Did they invite these people for dinner? My guess is they knew this would upset you (so they tried to hide it from you). If they showed up, and just served them dinner that’s one thing, if they were invited, that’s a completely different story. Not sure. You can always ask your son, “Have I done something to upset you, or to make you feel its ok to treat me this this way?” Instead of saying, “You are an ungrateful son,” say “I feel unloved.” This will hopefully help him see that you are not attacking him.
