Escents Mother Love - Part 3
Posted by Escents on 5/8/2011 to Culture

Happy Mother's Day!  If you're a Mom, we hope you're being suitably spoiled, and if not, we hope you're busy letting your Mom know exactly how much you appreciate her.  This is the final installment of our series "Mother Love."

Tara (Head Office):

My Mom lives in another part of the province, so we mostly stay connected on the phone or through Facebook.  As I've gotten older, I've started to better appreciate my Mom as a woman, and not just the person who sent me money when I needed it, rescued me from whatever mess I was in, or endured my endless complaining about there being nothing to eat in the fridge.  I'm pretty sure I drove her right 'round the bend as I was growing up, but she was always there.  As we both grow and change, I can see that our relationship is now more about connecting as friends than as parent and daughter; we share what it's like to live with the struggles we have and help each other through them.  Having gone through a tough year personally, I really appreciate my Mom, and many of the women in my life, actually, who have held me up and loved me unconditionally.  Thanks Mom, I love you tremendously and I can't wait to see you this summer!  I hope you have a fantastic Mother's Day.

Tara's Mom, Dorothy

Saige (Willowbrook):

Some people may write about what their mom has done for them, how they have gone the extra mile, or what makes them stand out among other moms.  I however, will write about my mothers being nothing but themselves and the values they believe in. I was raised by two gay women, and growing up this caused a lot of struggles for me and my childhood. In elementary school I was made fun of, both for having an “abnormal” family situation, as well as being accused of being homosexual myself due to kids assuming it was “genetic”. I didn’t have many friends and the friends I did have were primarily boys. In high-school my best friend wasn’t even allowed over at my house because her and her family came from a very strong Christian background. I was judged and excluded for something that wasn’t even a personal choice of my own. Obviously when I was younger and didn’t quite understand, I would’ve given anything for my family to have been “normal”. Now I wouldn’t have it any other way. The challenges I experienced taught me so much about myself and gave me a strong understanding of values I full-heartedly believe in and take pride in. I am no doubt a stronger person because of it, and I am thankful every day. I don’t just have one strong, beautiful, independent woman to look up to, I have two.  Happy Mother’s Day to the both of them and all the other mothers who remain true to themselves.

Jennifer (Head Office):

My mom is great and has always put her childrens' needs before her own.  She is the most thoughtful, patient and giving person I know. I don't get to see her very often anymore, and after visiting our goodbyes are
always tear filled but I know she is always a phone call away.  I love you Mom!
