Thanks for the hugs. I know, Mother's Day is the 2nd largest Hallmark Holiday. I know I should not have expectations of a parade and flowers .... but I don't think it's too much to ask for more than a text message at 5:00 PM or a fly by phone call late in the afternoon.
I knew my son was going to be out of town this weekend. I knew my daughter was going to work today so the other Mom's could be home with their families.
But when my son arrived back in town he called me to say he was coming by. "After I go by Dad's because he's having a dinner for his Mom."
My Mom didn't even get a phone call. From either one of them. I suspect my daughter went to her Dad's for the dinner and didn't tell me.
So my son shows up, at 8:00, stays for 1/2 an hour. No card. But he did give me my favorite lotion from his new GF. Not from him... from her.
I am grateful for that, she's a nice young woman.
As I sit and examine all of my feelings about this...
I was perfectly fine spending Mother's Day all alone. Until I found out MY children were spending Mother's Day Dinner at their Dad's house with HIS mom.
Thanks Kids. Thanks a lot.
