My dear daughter sent me this Facebook meme tonight.
I could never relate to these kinds of sentiments when it came to my own mother. I’ve always had such a hard time finding an appropriate card for Mothers Day, etc. that didn’t express flowery sentiments that simply didn’t apply. But my daughter didn’t send this because she had to or because there was any special occasion. She sent it “just because” so I know she really does feel this way. I think both my kids know I’ve always loved them very much, even during the times when my symptoms were at their worst and I didn’t always put their needs ahead of mine.
