Will You Have a Happy (Step)Mother's Day?

Will You Have A Happy (Step)Mother’s Day?  Why does the thought of Mother’s Day worry so many stepmothers? Do we feel like we’ve merited some sort of recognition that we know we won’t get? Is it because we secretly hope that perhaps this will be the year that our stepkids have a grand epiphany that we’re pretty darn amazing, we do a lot for them, we put up with a lot as a stepmom and gosh darn it, we really do love them? ...more

Only a short time later, she would hold him in her arms as he died, then delay her grieving and open those arms to comfort her six little ducklings who lost their daddy.     I watched her do the same all over again for my grandmother.
