A mother is so many things. I mean Hallmark made a living out of describing what a
mother is, was, and can be. I don't ever remember reading a card that said your
mother was a mother of convenience. My mother is only around to help when it is
convenient for her. When you ask her for help she is always too busy. She wants to
see the kids when she wants to see them and not when we want to come by and
She told me that if I don't like the kind of mother she has been than I can become a different mother to my own kids.
I try. I really do and I am so stubborn and spiteful towards my mother. I have not
talked to her in four years and now that she found out about my back she keeps
calling me. I will not answer her calls because she had 4 years to contact me. Now
she feels that maybe I may die or something so she wants to make peace or talk to
me. I just can't do it! I can't allow her to be my mother of her own convenience.
