here in England its Mother's Day and although I had a lovely card , present and hug from my daughter, my son that lives with his dad has just sent me a text saying Happy Mother's Day sorry but I'm skint so havnt got you anything. I messaged him back saying a visit would have meant just as much as a present, no reply to that.... Facebook is filled with Mother's Day messages, happy families. It is so sad that he chooses not to have much involvement with his family that loves him so much and continues to push us away. Why do some childeren value there families and other don't? I couldn't bare to be without my parents.
