Food for thought

I got this in my e-mail box the other day.

Don’t miss our Mother’s Day offer of a FREE meal for those who became a mom (or became a mom again!) in 2008!

This Mother’s Day Week, Let’s Dish! will give a FREE Ready Made meal to anyone who has become a mom ( or become a mom again) in 2008. Just come into any of these Let’s Dish! locations between May 4 and May 11 and pick up your free dish (serves 4-6). No obligation. No small print. See just a few details below.*

I am going to see if I can get my meal ... maybe I will bring Shannon's memory box as proof of her birth since we can't get birth certificates in D.C.

Oh h*ll ya, I would totally take Kota's death certificate and go to something like this! If nothing else, just to make a statement about how deluded Mothers Day has become. You know it was actually started by bereaved mothers who were protesting for peace after the deaths of their sons in the Civil War:

"... let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of counsel. Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead..."
~Julia Ward Howe, Boston, 1870

It's so annoying that bereaved mothers are the last to be honored -- if at all -- when this day was started because of our ancestors who were honoring their grief and missing their children...

Anyway, I know also it might be hard to do something like this, too... so I'm sending you supportive vibes!
