    I absolutely hate when people say things like that. Mother’s day is one of those days when I simply have to turn off the television and the internet as they are full of saccharine messages to “mother”…that “wonderful woman” who gave up so much for her children. Yea, sure. Mine was a heartless bi\tch that took great pleasure in abusing her daughters and holding her sons up as semi-gods. She could be the world’s nicest person to the neighbors and to strangers, and cruel beyond measure to us at home. everything we did or said was a reflection of and on her and she told us so each and every day.

      I can relate, especially on Mothers Day.
      I still send my mother cards, but it’s so hard to find one that isn’t all saccharine and talks about all the unconditional love and sacrifices made for me. I try to find cards that are impersonal and just say “Have a Great Mothers Day” or birthday or whatever, but it’s so hard. I can’t bring myself to send a sappy, sentimental card that would be essentially a lie. It makes me sad, but that’s how it is for me.
