On a day that this country has set aside to celebrate and honor mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers throughout society, I would be remiss if I did not take the time to honor and remember the woman
who bore me into the world. If I am perfectly honest with myself, the celebration of Mother’s Day has become a bitter sweet kind of day for me. Why do you ask? The best way that I can explain how I feel is to say that on the one
hand I appreciate and love the way that my own family showers me with love on this day but then on the other hand it reminds me of the fact that I no longer have my mother here to shower with love. Unfortunately, my mother was taken from us almost 15 years ago as she struggled to fight against the terrible disease of lung cancer. She was only 57 years old. You might be saying to yourself, “That was so long ago.” Believe me, the length of time doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. I’ve come to know that the majority of people who think that I should be over it already, have not
experienced loosing a mother. So please don’t judge me for loving and not wanting to forget.
