Some have cried out in dismay about my stance on Valentine’s Day. You’ll notice that I didn’t say I don’t bake heart-shaped cookies and put up a few decorations and teach the little ones how to cut out hearts. I just don’t need a big production for my own benefit. That said, I do my best to notice and celebrate the holidays as they rush toward me.
I really don’t need or want a giddy celebration of Mother’s Day, either. I tell you–I’m low-maintenance and unimpressed with the demands of society which tell me I must celebrate in a certain way on a certain day or else be branded a curmudgeon. Or a bad mother.
