Mom Talk: Mother’s Day vs. Father’s Day

I know its a day behind, but I wanted to say Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, moms-to-be, step-moms, and all the other moms who stepped up when the dad didn’t.

A lot of mom’s think that because it is Mother’s Day, they will have a clean house, don’t have to do dishes, or laundry. For some families, they do that or they make breakfast in bed for their moms.

I wanted to talk about the real meaning of Mother’s Day. It’s not just for mom’s, its for all the woman that acted like a mother or was a mother to you in your lifetime. I also want to say that Mother’s Day is a day for the mother’s and that Father’s Day is for the father’s.

There are tons of mom’s that are single and play both parts, but Mother’s Day is for all the mom’s, whether you loss a baby, had a miscarriage, or adopted a child, that day is for you.

What really upsets me, is that single moms or moms who play both roles of mom and dad, think that Father’s Day is about them too. NO. Just no. Father’s Day is for all the fathers or dads, not for those moms who play both parts.

For example, I’m going to use my family as an example. I don’t speak or talk to my father because he was never a real father to my siblings and I. He has always been in and out of our lives that I don’t considered to say anything on Father’s Day.

My mom has been raising us and caring for us since day one. My father does it when he feels that he needs to be, not when he should be, which would be all the time. That’s why I don’t tell my father, Happy Father’s Day. I say it to my mom’s dad because he was there for my siblings and I when my father wasn’t.

Anyway, Happy Mother’s Day to all the MOTHER’S out there, this is your day, NOT Father’s Day.

Unclear – Intro

So, in my spare time I write on Wattpad. I have a few stories on there, but I figured that I could share a chapter a week. Every Monday, I will upload a chapter from one of my books. If you don’t want to wait for another chapter, you can find it on Wattpad (You do have to sign up in order to read anything).

Unclear was one of my first books that I posted on Wattpad. When I upload them, they might be different from the original book that is on Wattpad. I started writting back in high school, so there are a few errors here and there. Here is just a little info of what the book is about.

Jade Roy has always thought that bad things wouldn’t come to her, but she was wrong. At age 11, her father died in the military. After that, her older sister died in a car crash 6 months after her father passed on. It has been her mother and her.

She hopes that things will get better… Or will they?

10 years later, Jade moves in with her best friend, James. She has always loved him, but never confessed her love to him. She’s scared to open up and love someone, but when James meets this new girl online, Marie. She starts to think that they will never be together. Or will they?

Here is the intro of Unclear. I hope you all like it.

~Intro~

My name is Jade Roy. I used to live with my father, mother, and older sister, but that all changed when my father was recruited into the war. We all didn’t want him to go, but he had to. For us. He always wanted us to always be safe, but that all changed when he was shot and killed in the war.

My mother didn’t think it really happened, but when the officer came to our door and gave us the sad news about my father. My older sister, Mandy, started getting into drinking and smoking cigarettes. My mother didn’t even know what was going on until 6 months after my fathers death.

We got a call at 3 a.m., saying that there was a car accident and that Mandy was involved. My mother and I both rushed to the hospital to see if she was okay, but she wasn’t. Mandy ended up dying from losing so much blood.

Mom and I held each other close and she promised me that she would always protect me. I made that same promise to her, as well. It was just us now. I also promised myself something else, as well. I will never fall in love, unless I know that he was the one.
Kinda extreme coming from an 11 year old, right? It wasn’t to me.

I wanted to make sure that my mother’s happiness came first, before mine, but I never wanted to see Mom with someone else. I just wanted it to be me and her. No one else, but us against the world.

I just wished things would change for the better.
