I’m going to be gut-level honest with you. I have not always enjoyed Mother’s Day.
There were years where I dreaded walking down the card aisle. Row after row of sweet pink and fluffy cards that spouted words of maternal adoration were a little overwhelming for me.
You see, my mom and I didn’t exactly have a pink and fluffy relationship. It was black and white for the majority of my childhood. So Mother’s Day was hard because there were rarely cards that conveyed the genuine nature of our relationship with both truth and love.
