As a single mom, I have a newfound gratitude for what my mom went through. I never knew the scariness, the weariness that could descend at times- she protected us from it. I also now know that she deserves the love on Mother's and Father's Day because she had to wear both hats.
As the mother of a teenager now, I know that she deserves a HUGE thank you for not killing me. The hormones, the weepiness, the tunnel vision of what I wanted, the complete self-absorption that I possessed- I owe her for loving me through it all. I was far from loveable for years, but she loved me anyway.
