Mother’s day was hard and it didn’t help that people were completely ignoring the fact that I’m a mom. Just because my son is gone doesn’t mean I don’t want to be acknowledged as a mother. I know people were trying to protect me so that I wouldn’t have a “melt down”, but not being acknowledged was far worse then me crying because my son is gone. Jonathan did get me a Nintendo Wii game for mother’s day, but only because I had to tell him that he should get it for me for mother’s day. I wish people would understand that not being recognized for something is far worse than being recognized and me getting sad.
