not having real parents, i always have mixed feelings on mother's and father's day. on one hand i don't have to deal with the hallmark-ness and arranging for outings or gifts or such. on the other hand i'm acutely reminded of not having parents to care about or who care about me. since the only mother i acknowledge is my goddess i think today is a good day to thank her for all the wonderful gifts and blessings she's given me. now i shall go find a tree to hug.
