6 comments on “Always a Bit Lost on Mother’s Day

  1. My thanks to you, too, Willow, although I wasn’t the intended recipient. I didn’t receive cards or calls from my offspring, and I am pretending I received this wish from them. Larry, I lost my mom too, after a long bout of ill health, some years ago. You feel as if you didn’t say enough, but she knew you cared. I’m on the south side of your peer group, and the “spare the rod and spoil the child” policy was applied to me too. It was a kind of schizo-love, but it was there. And that’s all that counts.

  2. Karen,
    With “the rod,” I sometimes wondered if the love was there but, of course, it was. That’s how it was back in those “old days.” Yeah – can’t believe I’m saying that.

  3. I lost my Mom in 2006 when I was 32. It unfortunetly had been coming for the last 12 years of her life, slowly. I barely got to see her the last 2 years she was alive, and for that I will never, ever forgive myself.
