I never realized how accosted I’d feel by all the Mother’s Day advertising. Everywhere I turn it’s Mother’s Day this and Mother’s Day that, Gifts for Mom, Celebrate Mom and so on. They are all cruel reminders that mom is no longer with us.
I know this is going to be a very difficult and sad Mother’s Day for me and I’m trying to brace myself for it. And even though I’m a mom, I just don’t feel that I can enjoy and “celebrate” the day because I do not have my own mother physically with me.
Who knew that last year would be the last time we’d celebrate Mother’s Day together.
