I've been a single mom since my son was born, and Mother's day is always a bittersweet day for me.
I like to think that in another life my husband would be bringing me breakfast in bed and telling me to go back to sleep that he'll take care of DS this morning so I can relax. And when I get up we would all go to the park and while DS plays DH would give me the card/ gift that he helped our son make for me. Maybe he would have arranged a special dinner or a night out for the 2 of us, and I would think how lucky I am to have 2 such wonderful men in my life.
But that fantasy has never happened. And since DS is just 2yo there won't be any homemade cards, or flowers waiting for me. And Mother's Day will be just like any other day of the year here at our house. But even though it makes me sad to think of all those little things that I won't ever receive...I still feel like the luckiest woman in the world every day that I was blessed with my son. I won't have the "ideal" Mother's Day but it's close enough to perfect for me :)
I think we all feel this way sometimes, but I hope everyone who needs it has their own "perfect" Mother's Day this year!
