Mother's Day

Sunday, May 08, 2011

Mother's Day has always been filled with mixed emotions for me. I love my mom. We've had some dysfunctional moments, but she really is a great person.

The problem lies with me. I always wanted to be a mom, had always planned to have children. It just never happened. I married at 36 to a man who swore that we would have children "within 2 years". In two years, he said he wasn't ready. Two years after that, he still wasn't ready. The marriage ended last July, and pretty much took my dreams of becoming a mother with it.

However, if you remove the biological function, I realize that I have mothered and nurtured. And every day, I have the opportunity to care for others. Happy Mother's Day to all, including us non-traditional "Moms".

    I have always viewed anyone that nurtures, loves and cares for others as being as much, and sometimes more than, a woman who actually gives birth. I am sure you have been a blessing to so many...........

    big hugs..........
