Mother’s Day is this weekend. My kids have already come home from school with cute momentos that will forever remain in the “awe” section of my keepsakes.
I have not bad a stable, confident, consistent mother figure in my life. My mother, whom I refer to as the “egg donor” made it clear that she isn’t ready to face her past (ie, me). Stepmom 1 doesn’t deserve to be acknowledged. Stepmom 2 is actually normal, but did not take the roll of “stepmother” until after I had left home. My grandmothers, though loving women, were not able to take the role as lead female.
Therefore, I dedicate this Mother’s Day to Audrey Hepburn.
Some infamous photos and quotes….
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
“You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.”
“I have to be alone very often. I’d be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That’s how I refuel.”
