My Ma* Hates Mother's Day

Scottie Kersta-Wilson

Can you believe that the mother of this somewhat charming and attractive crew really really hates Mother's Day?

Ma with her five lovely and doting children

She has a theory that a guilty child fabricated The Day in order to have a pressing reason to call his or her mother. And she suspects that said child has stock in Hallmark.

As a single parent who raised us for 50 years, she's of the opinion that every day should be Mother's Day. As one of the five she raised, I can't say that I blame her.** So, we do our best throughout the year to show her we care; we call, we write, we visit, and on Mother's Day we make sure she has a card and a little gift, whether it's new washer, new mailbox, a bit of jewelry from the fabulous Texas jeweler James Avery,*** or even a piece of wearable art from her favorite eldest daughter. Because for all her disdain, she knows it's the official Mother's Day.

I guess what I'm saying, is that every day is a day to celebrate mothers, grandmothers, step-mothers, and all helpers of anyone. But be sure you don't forget them on Mother's Day. And from our family to yours, Happy Mother's Day!

* She also hates "Ma", so I use it whenever possible

** Not that we were horrible children by any means
