Happy Mother's Day!

Mother's Day is a weird day for me, because, between Evil Mother and Raised by JWs, Mother's Day was a non-event until I Quit the Cult and continued to be an ambiguous event for a long while thereafter.

But I've had kids for a while, and many of my friends have had kids for even longer, so Mother's Day is now mostly just The Day You Don't Go To Restaurants Because OMG It Is Cray-Cray Out There, with a side helping of cards/flowers/chocolates.

I'm not the only person out there with a complicated and/or non-relationship with her mother, but I'd like to wish _all_ of my women friends, whether they have children or not, Happy Mother's Day. You may not realize it, but you have nurtured someone in your life. If you can't think who that was, well, then, it was me.

And if you have reproduced, good luck to you! It's tough sometimes, but I hope you find it as worthwhile as I do.
