Inner Truth - Week 3


This is a Monday blog hop linky for anyone on a soul searching journey of inner change or personal development.

I write this post with a very heavy heart as it is the second Mother's Day in a row (the only 2 I have had given that Aaron is 21 months) and for both of them my husband has done NOTHING, yet on both, he had made a fuss of his Mum.

Suffice to say, I think I will have to leave the country for Mother's Day next year; I can't be doing with the disappointment of it, and seeing him on that day just rubs my nose in it.

Every time I walked passed adverts in the last few weeks I looked away - I had the dread one would have if approaching the anniversary of a death - ridiculous! Due to that avoidance, I didn't register the date and assumed it'd be early April like last year.  How could I forget April 2011, when it coincided with the same week that I went back to work after maternity leave.

Anyway, I was on my train home from work on Thursday, when someone said it was this Sunday, 18th March.  News to me!  I must have said shit a 1,000 times as my Mum's part of Ireland does not have post on Saturday and as it takes 2 days I would have needed to have posted her card on Wednesday...... I have never missed a Mother's Day for my Mum, and I couldn't order a last minute bouquet as she considers them a waste of money.

So me and Mum had about 3 phone calls with each other yesterday, and she kept me sane.  And I did not shed a tear.  Shed enough for a year last year.

So I royally cheated on my lemonade diet yesterday.......

Unsurprisingly the scales reflect it today.

I am looking a lot slimmer though.

I am sorry that I cannot be more upbeat. but with a name like Inner Truth, I had to be honest about where I am at.

  1. So sorry you had a rough day yesterday. My Other Half behaved in much the same way. The Little Man has been going on about Mother's Day for a couple of weeks - I guess they talked about it at nursery. He made me a gift and a card at nursery too so I guess Daddy assumed he didn't need to bother...
    Perhaps next year you could arrange to do something nice on the day and leave the boys at home?

    Hope you are feeling a bit better today xx

  2. I like this blog hop theme.. Inner Truth i have lost my blogging voice at the moment otherwise i would join in.
    Admitting disappointment about something is a really hard thing to do i can understand your feeling of hurt i think some men take the Mothers Day as in relating to only thier own Mothers too literally thats why they blindly dont recognise it as a day of celebration for the Mothers of thier children...
    and dont forget as you son gets older he will be that person celebrating your Mothers Day with every once of his heart ... you have alot of beautiful Mothers Days ahead of you. hugs xxx

  3. Ohh sorry to read this Liska. Have you chatted to your hubbie and let him know how you feel? Mich x
