Reconciliation

Mother's Day ... How are motherless daughters and sons reconciling?

Avoiding the endless racks of cards - that are just too hard to read. Cringing or sighing at every Hallmark commercial. Tears escaping recklessly. Remembering, retracing, and wanting to feel that little piece of empty that is somehow comforting. A day reminding me of what I had, and still want.

A reason to count my blessings.
