Mother’s Day Take 2

motherhoodYesterday I wrote a really nasty post about a bad conversation and my experience of Mother’s Day with my own mother. Even though everything I said is true, or, at the very least, my perception of what’s true, I just couldn’t leave it up. I didn’t feel right about airing someone else’s dirty laundry like that. The situation hurts and angers me, and I was writing to pacify those emotions. However, everyone has a right to a good reputation. By expressing my hurt in the manner which I did, I was denying my mother that right. For that, I apologize. At this point, the situation is still too raw for me to come away with any valuable life lessons, but I wanted to share something about Mother’s Day. Since I don’t have it in me right now, I’ll leave you with this sweet video. It’s such a treat to see what the sacrifices of motherhood may look like through our children’s eyes. Our children deserve our best, even when it’s hard.
