I had posted earlier on Facebook that mother’s day is a very loaded day. While it is a secular holiday, in some ways I think it would be better as a spiritual holiday because we have so many issues around the role of mother and motherhood.
I myself am grateful for my own mother. She is the one I can openly brag about my accomplishments with.
She is the one that I can torture with my tales of woe because she cares that much. She is the one I got my best qualities from and ( sorry mom) some of my worst.
If we did this right everyone would tell me how they are feeling about any aspect of this day. Please enjoy a song I wrote for my mom just weeks after we lost my dad.
I welcome all comments.
