I Hate Mother’s Day (but not for the reasons you think)

By on May 14, 2017

Not only for the usual anti-consumerist/grouchy reasons, those too. I hate Mother’s Day because my mother died of complications from cancer two years ago later this month and I haven’t recovered from it. I’ve lived in denial of the Hallmark Holiday both last year, and this one, much to…
