Honestly, this isn’t unusual. My daughter rarely did anything more than a text on Mother’s Days when she lived here. I certainly don’t expect anything now that she is far away. But, when they lived here, I had the grandchildren every weekend and they would always do something sweet for me for Mother’s Day — like draw pictures, give me a massage, or do something extra helpful around the house. I miss them — every day, not just on special days.
