Mother's Day

Anyway, what I wanted to talk about was ... well... these American holidays are just a bunch of hype to me. Quite unfortunate really. Like today, I think I only saw my mom when I got home around 11. Did I tell her "happy mother's day"? No, because in this house, unfortunately, things like that don't matter. Mother's Day, Father's Day, Fourth of July, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter... birthdays... we don't really celebrate anything besides Chinese New Year. In fact ... I don't even remember the last time we did that!

Why am I going into all this? I don't want to make anyone feel bad or sorry for me. That's just the way it is. LOL maybe like I was telling Kevin, since I haven't finished updating my journal, my blog is my journal for now. Of course, I can't put everything on here that I would put in my journal. Actually, there's more to this entry, but I had to take it off. It got too personal. Really.

This morning in Sunday school, Karen asked a bunch of different people why their moms were special. Brandon said because he though he's all grown up now, his mom still makes him breakfast before school. Juan said because his mom always made sure he got up for church on Sundays. I was really hoping Karen wouldn't ask me. Because I didn't have an answer. Yeah, I appreciate my mom and all she has done for me. But, still, I couldn't think of an answer for Karen. Okay, this is where I'm gonna stop and go offline to finish what I started and had to take off.

Ok so remind to ask you something about this exact subject in Woodlake, most likely when we're back at the house. I don't really want to get into it at church =) Nothing bad, but you've kind of opened my eyes to something....
