We were not a Hallmark family and so Mothers Day (and Fathers Day and all the other – Hallmark holidays) were ignored. As my long-gone mom used to say to the four us ‘Grains, “What about the other 364 days of the year, hmmm?”
Hard to be raised by lawyers, innit?
If you have a mother in your life (or chosen mother), give her a call and make her day. Pro tip: give her a call any day; she’ll be thrilled.
