Do You Struggle With Mother's Day? It's OK, Me, Too by Tori Ulrich
Mother's Day can be a tough day for me. My mother and I are long estranged after years of mess, and it's taken a lot of hard work to deal with what happened along the way. Sometimes I feel pangs of jealousy when I see my friends celebrate their moms so fiercely, or sadness when I think about what I missed, particularly mid-May. It's a hard thing this time of year, to be forced to re-face the fact that a parent dropped the ball, and I know there are other folks out there that feel this, too.
I stand in solidarity with you, folks that would like to skip Mother's Day. I will raise a glass to, and fiercely love all of my friend's moms, my friends as moms, strong women and badass working moms and all of the moms everywhere!
But I will also be glad when it's Monday.
