Did your family forget Mother’s Day? I’m sorry that’s tough.
If you enjoy this yearly celebration and recognition you might be feeling shit right now. Angry, resentful, hurt and upset. You might be thinking that they SHOULD have remembered this day. You might be making it mean that your family doesn’t really care. Maybe they don’t love you as much as you thought.
OK STOP! Actually lets just back up a bit.
Your family does love you, right? Don’t let the fact that today is Mother’s Day spoil a perfectly good day. If today wasn’t Mother’s Day you wouldn’t have expected anything… and you wouldn’t be feeling any pain. So how can you use that to your advantage?

Make it a great day! Let the people you love know what you would like to do. Make it a great day without any expectations. When we have expectations of other people and we don’t let them know (we ALL do this, believe me!) then we are setting ourselves up for disappointment. We can always ask!
Go ahead and ask from a place of love and no expectation and see what happens.
