Mom’s Day…again?

“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

Mother’s Day 2013: Year three without Mom.
All of those Hallmark, Macy’s and Flower commercials are enough to make me hurl my new wedges at our flat screen!

Just like dear ol’ Charlie Brown says about Christmas cards, “I almost wish there weren’t a holiday season. I know nobody likes me. Why do we have to have a holiday season to emphasize it?” You get my drift.

Yeah, I miss Mom on a daily basis, and the sense of loss can get a bit overwhelming when you see and hear phrases like:
“Mom will love this” or “Treat Mom on her special day”, blah blah blah…

Normally, I have a pretty playful, lively disposition, but at the same time, my soul carries around a sense of profound loss like a heavy black burqa, one that cannot be so easily peeled off.

With that said, (and you should know by now this blog is pretty cathartic for me) for today, I’ll strip off my shroud and enjoy the family I have here to love and enjoy spending earthly time with.

So, Happy Mother’s Day Mom, wherever you are — and to all Moms out there in computerland, hug your kids no matter how old they are, tell them you love them and enjoy the day!

Photo Notes: Top pic, I was in mom’s belly. Photo #2 is one of my faves of Mom in Ocean City, NJ. I wrote a post about this special spot called EMPTY BENCH.

    Aw Lee! So I’m not crazy, those Macy’s, restaurant’s, etc. Mother’s Day commercials hurt and make me want to break something. Why does breaking something feel so good when you’re hurting? I cannot believe my Mom has been gone since 1991!!!!! Exactly one week before you and I met, one week after I moved into Kling St. apt. This stinks! I miss Erica terribly too, her being in that horrible, disgusting place completely devoid of any love or caring, and no place for the addicted. BUT, as you said, I will enjoy today with the littlest angel in my life, thank God for my blessings and pray for those going through such awful things on this day and every day. I love you Lee. Peg is watching you and is SO proud, and is SO grateful that her giving heart has continued through her beautiful daughter with Pegs Presents. Have a great day with your great guy and those two little furry beauties!!!! Our Moms were so great, we were so lucky, that is why today is partially painful!

    @ Irene,: Love to you my friend! Thank you so much for this thoughtful and sweet message – you are such a great person with a soul and heart of gold! I hope things get brighter for you and Erica, and be sure to enjoy that little sugarplum Bella today.
    Your note made me smile :)

    I sense that your mom is forever beaming with pride and love for the daughter who, like she, is a nurturer and caring person, always performing acts of kindness and compassion for family, friends and relative strangers (alike) and whose love of our furry brethren can’t be overstated.

    I love all that you are and I know that your mother, in helping shape the person you are, did her very best. That is her lasting gift to everyone.

    Lee, I thought about you on Mother’s Day and how it must be such a hard day for you. Your wonderful and wise hubby is so right, and perhaps that thought will bring you some comfort.
