Yes, I love my mother dearly. I talk to who daily and we have a wonderful relationship. Today is so difficult for me because I live so far away from her and it makes me miss her even more than I already do. I am 36, married and will not be able to have children of my own. I want them, but I can't have them. Adoption is not an option for us for a variety of reasons. I sit here today in so much pain, mourning the loss of my grandmothers, missing my mother, and feeling such a loss that I will not have children of my own. I guess people at different places that don't really know me assume that I have children because I'm 36 so I get wished happy mother's day quite a bit...at the grocery store, by random parents at work...it just hurts when they say it because it is a constant reminder that I don't have children. I generally try to keep myself busy with other things around the house, but every once in a while it just hits me. I'm not looking for advice, only a few more hours until the day is over. I just wanted to vent. Thanks I feel better now...back to opening the pool!
