This holiday is not especially happy for all of us such as myself who misses my mom dearly. Our moms are one of the most special and important people in our lives as we would not be here if it were not for them. Not every mom is perfect but they are all special.
My children are grown and don’t take the time to call. I am lucky to get a quick Mother’s Day text if I remind them and if I do not remind them I just get sad and my feelings get hurt.
I was told once before that children do not owe parents Anyang while this may be true in the basic sense of the phrase it is sad. When I was younger we were taught to respect our elders and made sure to take care of those who were aging and unable to care for themselves.
Anyway, it important to make sure that our loved ones feel appreciated and respected. If you have the opportunity to talk to your mother or grandmother reach out and let them know how much you love them. Do not take mothers for granted because they are not replaceable and they have feelings.
