My First Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is celebrated all over the world as a day to thank mom for all the time, energy, money, love, and support that moms give their children throughout the year. Those aren’t really the things that make Mother’s Day special.
My first Mother’s Day brought a flood of feelings of responsibility. This amazing little person entrusted to me helped me define myself, my womanhood, and my sense of duty. That very first Mother’s Day as I looked back over the changes and turns my life had taken, I also looked ahead. I looked forward to handmade Kindergarten gifts, clumsy Mother’s Day poems and songs, and even the nonchalance of Mother’s Day during the teenage years. The first year flew by so quickly, and the years ahead are all I have left to create moments we can both look back on.
My first Mother’s Day, though, brought flowers and cards and a nice meal that I didn’t have to prepare. It also brought a flood of memories. That’s when I realized that what made Mother’s Day, Mother’s Day were the memories. That first Mother’s Day was marked, not by the memories that stayed with me, but rather, by the memories that love had caused to fade.
