    Yeah, or that she told me repeatedly when I was 12-13 that had abortion been legal in 1960 I’d have never been born, or how, from as young as I can remember, she would tell me that the single worst thing someone can do to mess up their life was to have kids. Sorry, no warm and fuzzies can be mustered for the old woman. Now, of course, she wonders why I don’t call or visit. Oh well.

    So true. I can relate. But usefully,kids never realize this. Thanks,to all the Moms,that love your kids.

    Sorry Sarah but that would mean being to forget the things that she and dad said, and I can’t do that. I find it rather amusing in a sick way that she expects me to call and visit now. Oh well.

    Not all mothers are reflected in this lovely sentiment. It would be nice….and it’s probably true more than it’s not. However, there are certainly moms out there who simply didn’t embrace being a mom…or know how to be a loving and nurturing adult. To the children of those moms….please don’t repeat what you know to be your ‘normal’. Forgive..and move on so that your offspring might post this beautiful sentiment about you.
