My first Mother's Day was horrible.I called my mom to wish her a happy mother's day, but her voicemail told me that her well-to-do boyfriend was taking her jewelry shopping and to dinner, and she'd call everyone later,and to have a happy mother's day.Thanks a lot,Mom.My first Mother's Day, I'm alone, and you tell me Happy Mother's Day by voicemail.My mom never called, no friends called, and I was really depressed all day.I really appreciated how lucy I was to have Austin in my life, because if I didn't, I really WOULD be alone.We played for most of the day, but he ended up going to bed early.

My mom told me how special your first Mother's Day is, but not even a word from her.

Well, I had stopped my crying and just decided to go to bed, until the phone rang.No number popped up, but I figured I would answer it anyways.There was my brother, calling to wish me a Happy 1st Mother's Day all the way from Iraq.My mom couldn't take time away from shopping, but my little brother could call in the middle of a warzone.It was so special to me.But this morning really topped it off.I went out to grab the mail this morning, and when I reached in, there sat a card, postmarked from Iraq, 32 days ago.(It takes 3 weeks to a month for stuff to get here)and it said.

Dear Tiff,

You are an amazing mom.You have been through a lot more than most women could handle.Thanks for giving me such a cute nephew.

Maybe in a day or two I'll stop bawling.LOL
