I hope that your Mother's Day evokes fond memories. Unfortunately, life isn't like a Hallmark Card commercial and all mothers weren't saints. I know people who had rotten mothers hardly worthy of a mention. This special day only serves as a bitter reminder.
Despite all the unhappiness and turmoil in my life, I was very fortunate to have an extraordinary mother: my friend, mentor, and confidant - - brilliant, strong, selfless. She was my only anchor in a sea of chaos. I never fully recovered from her death; in truth, I died the day she died.
It's probably sappy to make a tribute video, but I've always been fiercely sentimental.
I made this video last night. It's rather long (5 minutes, I think). Best viewed full screen.
Happy Mother's Day to all. Jon
