I have what might be a silly question to some, but I'd like to know how you feel. Do any of you who are childless dread Mothers Day? I love my mom and MIL, and am glad to have a special day set aside to recognize them, BUT, I also dread to see it come in a way. I never really wanted children, but most of the "little old ladies" that I know always assumed that I would either slip up and have one or change my mind and have one, but due to fibroids, I had a hysterectomy in March of 2003, and last Mothers day the fact that I would never have kids really sunk in on these ladies, and they treated me like they thought it was the worst thing in the world, and the saddest thing for me personally that I couldn't have children of my own EVER . I love them all dearly, but I gotta say, I kind of dread church tomorrow, 'cause I know whats coming my way, and there's nothing worse to me than receiving sympathy for something that really doesn't bug me at all ! Am I the only one dreading the day for reasons like that?
