We’ve made it through another work week, and now we get to advance to the Weekend Bonus Round, where prizes are doubled and the fun is exponentially increased.
As you know, Sunday is Mother’s Day, so I decided that our Deep Thoughts tonight should focus on our Moms.
Put on your Deep Thinking Toga (make sure it’s clean, or Mom is going to be very disappointed!) and meet me in the Think Tank for our Weekly Philosophical Exercise.
Do me a favor, and don’t tell Oedipus to join us. Something tells me he would totally dominate the conversation, and the rest of us wouldn’t get a word in edgewise…
This week’s topic: If you could share one story about your Mother what would best sum her up for the group, what would it be? Feel free to gush about what makes your Mom so amazing…
Mother’s Day is always a very sad Holiday at The House on the Hill since my Mom died when I was three, and I have absolutely no memory of her.
My friend Donna once referred to me as a Motherless Boy, and while I couldn’t tell if it was a compliment or an insult at the time, I now understand that it sums me up very well.
When I first started seeing Dr. Jekyll after my divorce, I boldly told him that my Mother’s death had not had any affect on my life since I have no memory of her.
He pointed out how very wrong I was about that.
Apparently, losing my Mom at such an early age had a major impact on me and affected every important female relationship I’ve ever had.
For someone who prides himself on being a generator of Deep Thoughts and a Modern Philosopher, I was a naive idiot on that particular one.
I chose this topic for this week’s Think Tank because I want to read about how much you love your Mothers, and to get a better understanding of what it’s like to be loved unconditionally like that.
So please share your stories and don’t worry that they might upset me. I want to hear them, and enjoy this Mother’s Day vicariously through you, my loyal readers.
Happy Mother’s Day!
