We are into the 18th week of the year and I have decided not to stick with my list of “Wacky Wednesday” topics today. Just not into it. The framework is useful but I am not a teen or 20-something who needs to follow the syllabus for a course to pass.
I have noticed a great number of emails already arriving in my inbox over the pass couple of weeks promoting buying things as Mother’s Day presents. This is the first year that the date comes along without me needing to purchase a Mother’s Day card for anyone. In fact my Mom’s internment date is a week from today, four days prior to Mother’s Day here in the U.S.. Now I am not going to going on a rant about the commercialism of the vendors sending out those emails, or the ads that will probably be airing shortly on most TV programing. If they remind some husband or child to purchase someone for a mom and it makes a woman on the receiving end feel special and appreciated I do not want to stand in the way of it. I just wanted to say that this year seeing those Mother’s Day prompts is not doing much for me. But don’t fret, I have broad shoulders and will get over it by May 14th.
Meanwhile if you do have women to honor on Mother’s Day add an extra word or hug to your sentiments for me, and in memory of my mom. Thanks.
