100 Words- May 10, 2010- Mother’s Day

It’s Mother’s Day in America. It’s a day, while not a legal holiday, that is set aside to honor Mothers, in general, and our own in particular.

It has always been a difficult day for me, having been a physically and emotionally abused child, my memories of having been mothered, except for the first four years with TaTa Helen and Uncle Rudy, are not good ones. My birth mother and I did not have an almost reasonable mother/son relationship until I was in my late thirties. It took her all that time to decide to extend a willingness to try.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
