It's been mother's day in my part of the world for a few hours. I remember growing up with the joyful anticipation of the second Sunday in May as my sisters, brothers, and I planned for Mother's Day to be as special as we could afford it.
My children are now 13, 16, and 18 (all boys). From their toddler years to ages 10 I "trained" them remember others on special occasions. However, the past 3 years I have been miserable on Mother's Day because my children do nothing to acknowledge me. I feel neglected, abandoned, and unappreciated.
