Anyone else feeling this way about Mother's Day?

Mother's Day is fast approaching, and I'm dreading it. My mother has never been a good mom and I really don't want to call her on Mother's Day. It's silly, but I'm feeling a lot of anxiety about it. She didn't even call me on my very first Mother's Day, even though she told everyone she did, but she was very hurt that I didn't call her.

  • I dont get along with my mother either, read my journals, and especially now. My brother just got out of prison and is really trying hard to turn his life around but he has to stay at my moms and she keeps letting her bf kick him out! Now its for good and I told her off because she's never been there for any of her 4 kids when we needed her the most. Needless to say she most deff will not be getting a phone call

  • So am I. I am not speaking to my mom because she is a raging liar. My fiance's mom died on Mothers Day 8 years ago and I think he is dreading it too.

  • I'm not even thinking about my mother right now. I'm due to deliver this huge baby boy on Mothers day. So I certainly have other things occupying my mind.

    Though my mother has lots of negative aspects, I will say she kept me clothed (If not in fashion then at least not in rags), food in my stomach, and a roof over my head. Thats more than my father did. So I guess she at leasts deserves a phone call from me.

  • It's really not a BIG deal. I simply call my mom and tell her Happy Mother's Day. A couple of years, I have sent her a flower arrangement, but I am not a big card fan. So, why get so anxious about it? Just don't even think about it till that morning, pick up the phone can call, don't worry about it.

  • Nope, I got my own mom a card and it will be mailed on Monday. Hubby might go see his mom, but I'm not planning on going along.

  • I'd send her a card, or an ecard if you don't want to call.

  • Be grateful you still have your moms mine died back in 2004 right in front of me and she never got to meet her son in law or grandchildren! We were super close so just be grateful your moms are alive!

  • To nightngale, I'm not grateful I have my mother. She was terrible when my sisters and I were children, and she's still a terrible person. Thanks for your comment, but everyone's situation is different. Why should I celebrate this woman for being a terrible mother?
