1 thought on “Happy Mother’s Day

  1. Lynn

    I am so happy that Mothers’ Day is over for this year.
    I received a short “Happy Mother’s’ Day” from my
    daughter. This is the fourth year of making it through
    this difficult day. I have always believed that I was a good mother, not perfect, but loving, and generous.
    My children were never yelled at, hit, called names
    or anything of the sort.

    But here I am an emotional mess. My estranged daughter wanted my husband and me to go through
    4 hours of “therapy” where we would listen to
    all her shaming and blaming of us. We could only listen, not respond. We refused! This idea is crazy.
    I am already a mess; I am afraid I would be suicidal
    if we went through such a torture treatment. Such a
    “therapy” seems like mental and emotional abuse
    and the therapist is helping. No thanks!
    I am so grateful for this community of good people.
    I pray for all of you.
