I told myself that this was just a day. Not to think about it
and then yesterday when I stopped at the garden center for some soil
and there were all these long lines...
I tried not to think about the fact that everyone was most likely, buying Mothers Day flowers.
When I got to the check-out, the cashier asked if I was a Mom and I hesitated. I mean I am, sort of but....
She hurried said, "Well, if you're not, Happy Mothers Day to your Mom. Everyone has a Mom."
That kinda stung and I wanted to say "Yeah, but she's dead!" but instead I just smiled at her and left.
It wasn't her fault. She was just trying to be happy, cheerful
and I was in a hyper-sensitive mood.
Anyway, there's a lot of things I miss about my Mom
but I suppose it's this FEELING that I miss the most.
and I was lucky to have a mom like that.
Some people do have or had a Mom that wasn't.
I think it's important to remember that even if someone didn't give birth to you,
if they make you feel like that kitten, then you are blessed to have them in your life.
