Dear Mothers' Day

Dear Mothers' Day,

I don't like you. I hope this doesn't hurt your feelings, but I don't like you at all. You make me feel left out and sad. You remind me that this is yet another year where it's just Claudia and Mr Claudia and no baby, and you make me wonder whether things will ever be different.
This year, you also remind me just how much I miss my grandmother. You make me want to phone and talk to her, but I can never do that again and I hate that. You make me miss her so much I feel like I'm being stabbed. All in all, you make me want to break down and cry. Okay, you did make me break down and cry. I guess you win this year, mothers' day. I hope you get a personality transplant before 2010.


  1. Ha, this was funny.
    And poignant.
    I like the line about the personality transplant!

    I'm going to be so excited to read about your progress with adoption! It sounds awesome.

  2. No, it's not too late... you'll just have to e-mail me at with your address so I can send your gift! Happy Crafting!

  3. When I was really at my worst with my endometriosis, my dad used to say,"All you have to do is put both feet on the floor. That is the hardest part. Once you have done that, you have beaten the day". While you may have cried and hurt, it sounds like you put both feet on the floor- so I think you won. I am not saying it was easy, and that it didn't hurt a ton, but if you got out of bed, even for a minute, you are the clear winner!

  4. Thank you - that is exactly how I felt on Mother's day!


Over to you!
