How Do You Feel About Today?
I avoid spending much time on Facebook on Mother's Day.
I don't have a mother who loves me. And would give anything to experience that for even just one hour. (I've built it up in my head to be pretty effing amazing.)
I am not a mother. And would give anything to experience that too. (I'm no fool- I know motherhood has it's amazing and exhausted in tears on the bathroom floor moments. But I want them all the same.)
I'm not bitter. And I do wish all my mom friends a very happy day filled with treats (my friend Angie's seven year old daughter made her a waffle doused with powder sugar...but mistook the flour instead...Angie being the awesome momma she is ate the whole chalky flour thing) and pampering. But I don't need to rub my own face in it. So I quietly do other things and wait for Monday to roll around.
Is anyone else not a fan of Mother's Day? Is this a universal holiday or just something we do in the US?
