Many of you know I have serious issues with Mother's Day. I am happy to honor my own mother, that's not the problem. But as a mother myself, I really can't stand the day. It seems so fake and superficial. I can't stand it!
Every year, someone gets up in church and talks about their "perfect" mother. Blah, blah, blah. Do I need to feel even more guilty than usual for not being a "super mom"? Maybe I need to change my attitude? Yeah...probably. But will I? It hasn't happened yet! :P I don't think there will ever come a day when my children will call my name "blessed". When they speak about me as their "angel mother". Just the thought is laughable.
I don't think there needs to be a "day" to honor mothers. Shouldn't we be honored everyday? Shouldn't our husband treat us kindly and help out with the dishes more than once a year? (Mine is more helpful than that.) Shouldn't our children honor us by listening to our counsel and being respectful EVERYDAY? Will that ever happen? Not likely.
Oh well. I am a pro at putting on a happy face. Here I go again.
