Mother's Day Pet Peeve

I got my ad from Hallmark today.
I was disgusted with it. It has the
newest and best of Hallmark for
Mother's Day gifts and cards.

That is where my peeve comes in.
There is Happy Mother's Day cards
.....for sister, daughter, grandmother,
friend and etc.

I am sorry, but I will not send a
Mother's day card to my sister,
nor will I send one to my daughter
nor daughter in laws. My grand
mother has passed so that isn't
an option, but if it was... I wouldn't.
They have children of their own, and
they can recieve them from their children.
THEY ARE NOT MY MOTHER!!

I do not want to receive a Mother's
Day card from my husband, my sister,
my friends, or anyone else that I did
not give birth to. I AM NOT THEIR
MOTHER!!!.

The only exception to the rule as
far as I am concern, is a special
woman .... who filled in for your
Mother. Be it an Aunt or a special
friend of your mother... or just
an older woman who filled in,
for what ever reason.

I find cards for the others to be nothing
but a blatant commercial endeavor.

So if I am NOT your MOTHER... DO
NOT SEND ME A CARD. DO NOT
EXPECT ONE FROM ME.

And for those who I gave birth to..
well, it is up to you, if you think I
deserve one. Send one, but I rather
have a phone call.
End of rant...............................

I just discovered your blog on Sandpoint Online and I'm so glad I did! My (new-ish) step mother got very nasty when I didn't send her a Mother's Day card...but she's not my mother! I wish she had your attitude.
