happy UNmothers day!
Glorious rejoicing upon the eve of the BIGGEST day of the year ~ mother’s day, the BIGGEST guilt day of the annual calendar year. More money is spent on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year.
Perhaps it has slid in importance and sprinkled upon our millennial hipsters < the younger version and offspring of YUPPIES>.
I’m the luckiest of all of those others, Queen of the Crestfallen. My birthday falls in April, three weeks before Mother’s Day, so I can veer off disappointment lane when it’s forgotten.
If the ones you love the most can’t or don’t honor your birthday, the day celebrating the day you were born, the most unique event in everyone’s life: a birthday. Without YOU being born, those entitled offspring who rarely appreciate how unique YOU. One of a kind. If pushed, the said offspring would acknowledge how little they would change in YOU, their mother.
You’ve sure done a great job, of raising those young Millennial Hipsters. So well, in fact, that they calmly accept being the center of the universe, rarely acknowledging the way they were born, or by whom.
I wouldn’t change a minute of it. Being a mom has made me a lot tougher in so many ways like stifling fear and doing my darnedest to appear strong. Even when fears before you knew were fears begin to surface. Being a mom who did an excellent job of guiding her children in the best way she can, not in any singular form of wisdom, religion, experience or philosophy.
That is a lesson that anyone should achieve. On every UNmothers day every other day of the year ::… save your money on that one explosive day of feast or famine that mothers of the world unite. Sprinkle it every UNmothers day with a small bouquet of tulips, or a greeting card with a $5 Starbucks or Tim Horton’s card.
Celebrate today, this #unMOTHERSday hashtag for the next 24 hours in 140 characters or less on Twitter, include me @optioneerJM with #RT so we REPLY and connect with expanding new followers, unique and special because you share the same spirit and celebrate excellent quality.
Today take the time to do something special to say “Ya, I done good.” Relish the moment, or take a moment every other day of the year to remind yourself of that.
Every other #unMOTHERSday is none special as today. Yeah, you turned a new corner in a new birth day. A strange phenomena that hits we Yuppies from the 80s, now coasting in our 50s with the same joi d’vive!
