I want to wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day! Of course, the UK mums had their day in March. I want to thank Shelly for the tag above. I just love the floating petals.
We are going to my mother's tomorrow at noon. Seems my brother can't miss his golf tee time. Sort of boils my blood...lol..that every eating time revolves around his schedule. Easter dinner was at 5 because of his blood sugar levels and diabetes. Guess, during golf season, it cures itself. Ok...enough sarcasm on my part.
My mother and I have always had a difficult relationship. My mom is very rigid and unbending and would have loved to have a daughter just like she is. Well, it didn't turn out that way. It's been extremely difficult for her to accept that fact. When I was younger, I was very vocal. We've both mellowed. It started when she was hospitalized two years ago with an MRSA infection (hope I got that right). She got extremely disgusted with my brother. She still has far too much faith in my brother who I am beginning to totally distrust more.
I've raised my children in a totally opposite atmosphere. No harsh judgments, plenty of love and structure. I think I have three of the most beautiful, smart, well behaved, respectful children alive. They aren't afraid of me but know what is expected of them and do it for the most part. And they adore me. I drive them crazy and get on their nerves but do crack them up.
I also want to put a plug in for Sugar's journal. She's been doing a tribute to moms all week with some very lovely entries. If you haven't visited, do stop in. Here's the link...A LITTLE BIT OF SUGAR, PLEASE...
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY all!!!! Without our moms, we wouldn't be here today.......... HUGS & SMILES
