My heart goes out to Madam’s mom, because she had to spend last Mother’s Day without her daughter. I’ve been spending Mother’s Day without her for years, but it never gets easier. I reminded Madam to call her mother as soon as she awoke last Mother’s Day and helped her make a card so that she could text the picture to her. It was the least I could do for her mom.
Mother’s Day is the only day the two of us text each other. We aren’t enemies or anything, our relationship is civil and nothing more. I’m okay with that.
This morning was spent without my step daughter, I thought I would be used to it by now, but I suppose it will get easier as time goes on. Mr called Madam’s mom and spoke to Madam as well. She said that he should wish me a happy Mother’s Day, but didn’t talk to me. I don’t blame her, because she isn’t really allowed to call me mother so she never knows if she should wish me or not.
So I take Mother’s Day with a pinch of salt. No Mother’s Day has been the same for me, but I am always reminded of all the love in my life. I am also reminded that I should honour myself, because I hold the family together.
To all step-mothers on Mother’s Day I would like to say thank you for loving someone else’s children as if they were your own. Hold your head up high and be proud of all you do as a step-mother. You are a wonderful role model of unconditional love. Don’t be disheartened if you didn’t receive the recognition you deserve on this day, because you are a warrior shrouded in strength and one day of the year can’t take that from you.
I would like to extend a warm Mother’s Day wish to all mothers and all those who have shown motherly love. You are a blessing!
