Mother’s Day Blues
Mother’s day is a wonderful day for many people around the world who are celebrating their mother’s. Men everywhere are trying to make sure that their mom has a great day. Maybe buying them flowers, taking them out to eat, or just the visit is enough.
Mother’s day isn’t like that for me because I was adopted and I never had a good mother and son relationship with my foster mom. I really feel for all foster children everywhere. It can really bring on some depression when you see all these people buying things for their mom and all you can think is how much you wish you had that relationship growing up.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any good memories of a mother figure to look back on and sometimes it really hurts. My natural mother has long since passed away, and I know she gave me up but I still asked God if he would say happy mother’s day to her for me, I mean after all she is still my mother.
My hope is that if there is anyone reading this who may have the same issue as I do that they can know they are not alone.
If you do have a mother who is still living, whatever you do, PLEASE DO NOT push her aside and forget about her especially if she has always been there for you. Let her know how much you love her and spend as much time with her as you can, so many of us don’t have that opportunity. A mother whose children forget about them can begin to lose the feeling of having any purpose in this life.
