A longtime lurker sent this bitch an email asking me whether I dislike Mother’s Day because I am estranged from my mother.
Here’s my answer.
I cannot and do not speak for all folks who are estranged from their mother or mothers this Mother’s Day…but this bitch appreciates mothers 24/7 and all year long because I am estranged from the woman who gave birth to me.
I have known the absence of maternal comfort, support and love…so it dazzles me to see it demonstrated by mothers I know.
Women who aren’t perfect but who parent with humor, love and dedication.
Those are the mothers I think of today.
So, no…a bitch doesn’t have a problem with Mother’s Day.
Parenthood isn’t for everyone but it fits some folks like a custom made glove.
A fluff of the Afro to mothers this Mother’s Day and I hope you have a glorious day…
And a very special Happy Mother’s Day to my aunts and cousins…y’all are fantabulous!
