Mother’s Day/Father’s Day !! 「あぜりあ」本八幡・西船橋・津田沼・佐倉
TO ALL MY LOVING AND ADORING BLOGGING FANS IN JAPAN !!!
Greetings To You All. I am here at last after a short delay of having to wait for a new Modem yet again. Well, at least, thankfully, it is here and so am I for all of you. I missed you all so much this week. I was hurting on Saturday because I was unable to send my Blog to you. I really look forward to it. Happy Reading.
BLOG: # 65 : Mother’s Day/Father’s Day !!
Oh yes. I know. Mother’s Day was last month. But because Father’s Day was this past Sunday, 17 June, I thought I should say something first regarding Mother’s Day before I joyfully jumped into Father’s Day and was all joy and light because I can deal with Father’s Day better than Mother’s Day.
For me, Mother’s Day is hard. It shouldn’t be so I guess because I am a woman after all. But it is. For several reasons I suppose. One being because of the way my own Mother dealt with me when I was a child. I did not consider myself close to my Mother. I was my Daddy’s girl. Period. What love I received during my life came from my Dad. It was because of him that I turned out good. Plus, another thing about Mother’s Day is that I was not fortunate enough to have children of my own. I am a stepmother though. All my step-children are deceased though except for one. Plus, what can I say? All my step children, deceased or not, are older than I am. How is that possible? Well, it is easy when your late husband was married before and a widower and was older than you, it stands to reason his CHILDREN are older than you. It also helps the cause along when your late husband is older than your Father. In my case, yes, he was by three years actually. But weren’t we talking first about Mother’s Day?
I have another age thing for that too. My late Mother was older than my late Father by eight years. That was fun. I am not sure how that went really. If my Mother liked younger guys or my Father liked older women. I never got to ask my Father this question cause I never thought of it.
Do I miss my Mother? At times. Do I miss my Father? Yes! I think about him more and wish he was still here more. I think he would be more proud of me than my Mother would be. So now you know what it is easier for me to deal with Father’s Day than Mother’s Day. I was closer to my Dad. He would have been 98 years old this year.
And as to my late husband whom I adore and miss with all my heart and always will forever and ever, he would have been 101 years old this year.
TO ALL THE WOMEN IN MY LIFE: A Belated Happy Mother’s Day !!
TO ALL THE MEN IN MY LIFE, ESPECIALLY MY LATE HUSBAND, AND LATE STEPSON DAVID, AND OF COURSE, MY LATE FATHER: HAPPY FATHER’S DAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!
