i have little relationship with my real mother, after years and years of trying and being hurt again and again.
but of course, a person can never truly give up hope on her parent- there is always something inside that longs for recognition, that wants to hear the stories of a familiar childhood, that always keeps wishing.
in the many years that have passed since i last celebrated mother's day in her honor, i have come to find a new mother, a woman who chose to care for me, even though she had no obligation to. she and her husband gave me many things, not the least of which is the hope that someday, i could be a Good Mother too.
happy mother's day.

i love you.
