So it was a bad day. Wanted to run away. I have 4 kids and not one thing except megan my youngest gave me a card other day. She has no job so I do under stand. My oldest son sent a dam email of his kids pictures i wasnt good enought for him to even call. The other boy he lives here at home didnt see or do nothing for me. Brooke sent me card with dinner at a later day. So why are my 2 married kids inlaws better than I am. So why do I always do for them. I am sick of getting waled all over.So if I had a place to go I would of just gone there today.

You sound like you are feeling better. I hope so. I know it is nice to be recognized for all we do, but sometimes you just have to be confident in yourself and know that you are a wonderful person, even if others don't tell you so.

I am so sorry to hear that you had such a rough day. It is so hard sometimes. My husband is like that. Days he forgets are every eventful one, except his birthday. I know he loves me still, but I totally understand where you are coming from. There are days when it does get depressing.

I do think that TV puts a lot of pressure on folks to get a sparkly new ring or a bunch of flowers that won't last. It is so pushed on us to spend a lot to make it known and we don't have to do that. It becomes too focused on things, and not enough on the love we feel for our mom(s) out there.

I am a step-mom so I don't get much, but I do try to treat my mom special. I think it is more of a girl thing, unfortunately. Guys are kind of numb to it all sometimes. I do have to agree, email cards are not right. I hate email cards. I still like to send real cards that take time to pick out, to write a personal message in and to put a stamp on. We have a no email card policy in our home.

So call your youngest and thank her for making your day and when you get to spend time with Brooke, make it special for her too. That is what moms do best. We do it because we love them.
