Mother's Day
This weekend is Mother's Day, and I am already emotional.
I have not  had a great Mother's Day in many years.
I spend my mother's Day like any other day.
With the exception of going to visit my mother and mother in law.
I cook, I clean, it is just another day.
My hub, says, your not my mother.
My daughter, may call and say Happy Mother's Day. or may not.
No card, no visit.
It is not about a gift.
I have the gift.
My daughter.
Here's to another year

Do you ever want to give up on something?
 
Yesterday was that day.
 I asked God to show me.
Show me
I am worth it.
Why am I
 insecure ?
But all my life, fighting everyday 
I love to eat.
I fight everyday,
every minute.
Sometimes it is too much!
Thank you God for a new day.
Do I want to quit Weight Watchers?

Today I am here is say, YOU DON"T KNOW ME-
 if you think I don't cry,
 If you think I am a happy all the time,
if you think I am a confident person,
if you are not aware that I try to solve my problems with food,
if you think I have it all together.
