On Mother’s Day, people like to give their mom fun gadgets that will make some things easier for her. Sometimes they are given in jest as she will joke about a task being difficult and needing a different gadget to make it go faster. Some gadgets are very practical and will be used often, once she realizes that it really does make sense to have. 




Therefore, today I thought I would share some of my gadget gift ideas with you.

When Will We Get to Meet Your Mother?

The Girls:  "Mom, when will we get to meet your mother?"






Hey Yall!  This post is a little different than the norm, as you can see from the sentence above.  I told you all last week I've been going through some things and kept some of my issues private, but I want to get this off my chest and get your thoughts in regards to this matter.







You see, my girls are asking me about my mother, and why they haven't met her.  They had an encounter with her as newborns but don't remember that.







I was hoping never to have to speak about my mother to them, not have them wondering why she is not in our lives.  But my girls are getting older, their filled with questions that need answers.







So why haven't they spent time with my mother, their grandmother?   I bet you noticed how I never speak about her on this blog, and that's because I've had a falling out with her.  Our relationship was toxic.  In her eyes, I despise her.  She treated me like I was a mistake that she wish had never happened.  I guess I didn't live up to her expectations.  I just don't understand.  Also, when she looks at me, all she see is my father, the man who ran out on her.  What made her angry is that I forgave my father, and let him in my life as well as my girls.  If he's trying to do right, why would I turn him away?







From what I learned, my mom's childhood was rough; which made her cold-hearted, and hard to give out love and affection.  But you'd think by her having children she wouldn't want them to have the same life as her.  Just because I have problems in my life, I would never take it out on my kids; they're innocent.






Things got pretty bad during my teenage years.  My mom and I would get into heated arguments, and she would make my brothers turn on me, which by the way because of her I don't have a relationship with them either.  By all means, I wasn't the perfect teen; I did put her through a lot, but I was seeking her love, comfort, her praises.  To her, her career was more important than her children, plus the men she dated came before us as well.







How can she treat me like I'm don't mean nothing to her?  How can she not love me?  With the saying goes, "you must honor your parents", but I've tried with my mother time and time again, and she hurts me every time, I can't honor that.







Before my Step-Father passed away, his dying wish was for my mom, me, and my brothers to be a family again.  I tried, but it didn't work.  It was like she had fire in her eyes, and told me some very hateful things when I was trying to make amends with her which made me throw up my hands and walk away forever; I had enough of her.







If it weren't for my girls, I would be lost in this world.  Lonely, depressed, wondering why I'm unloved and unappreciated.  But my girls showed me what love is all about; they appreciate me, care for me, they are my guiding light. That's why I love so hard, making sure they never feel unloved and uncared for.  I want to ensure they know that I'll always be there for them.  God blessed me with two wonderful girls and showed me how what a mother is supposed to be.








Once my girls are teens, I'll give them the full story about my mother so they'll have a better understanding why they don't see their grandmother.  Then they can decide if they would like to meet her or not. 








Sorry for such a depressing post, but this has been weighing heavy on my mind since my girls are bringing my mom up.  With Mother's Day just around the corner, it opens up a wound making it fresh all over again.






Thanks you for reading.

Thanks JCPenney for sponsoring today's post!



Hey Yall!  I hope you're having a great week so far!

 



JCPenney contacted me to take on a challenge to spruce up for Spring with their buy 1 get 1 for a penny deal.  I was offered to do this challenge before I found out that I'll be moving soon because my landlord has to sell the house we're in.  Due to this, I now have to scale back on my purchases and start getting rid of things I won't need for my new place.
