And of course, Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms reading this post. You are very much appreciated in this world, even if you have a son like me who sometimes doesn’t show it the best.
But today isn’t about me. Mother’s Day is about my Ma. And always a good reminder that I do need to be a better son each and every day.
My mother is something special. I bitch and moan on here but her story is much more difficult than mine.
She lost her son, had a massive brain aneurysm, and had to deal with a drug addict son (me) for a long while.
But she never faltered. My Ma is the strongest person I know. I talk about my Pops on here a lot, but my Ma is the most resilient individual to ever grace this planet. I really believe that. She is… such a pure individual who gives and shows love to each and every single person she comes across.
I love my Ma. She doesn’t see these posts, but I plan on putting these words into action. Showing gratitude. It’s important we do that as sons and daughters — it’s one of the only ways we can ever “payback” our parents and/or parental figures.
Happy Mother’s Day, Ma. I love you. Maybe you’ll read this one day.
Get out there and hug your Ma and/or mother figure in your life. Show that gratitude.
I wish you the best. Try not to beat the shit out of yourself.
