As an adult, I don't remember liking my birthday. Special days are stressful and too much pressure. I like spontaneous fun days, flowers for no reason, cards just to say "I'm thinking of you", but I cringe at days that are designated as special.
I might have liked my first mother's day, but after my mother died, I didn't really like mother's day either.
What I do like is looking at my kids and my family and trying to enjoy them every day of the year. I won't lie, that can be difficult at times. But each and every day, even the really tough ones, I am very thankful to have these three amazing people in my life. These people who call me mom.
