I have way too many pissed-off friends today. Why? Because their husbands forgot or neglected Mother’s Day.
There are some of us for whom this day is a reminder of what we don’t have — we’re not (yet) mothers, or our mothers are gone. For a number of reasons, this year I felt particularly touched by their sensitivity to this day.
Sweetheart, I’m about to save you years of wondering, second-guessing, and tripping over yourself. I’m going to give you some basic criteria for how to tell if someone really and truly loves you.
It was inevitable. I told myself all throughout adolescence it would never happen. And yet, it has. I’ve turned into my mother.
