i went shopping for a card for my mother yesterday. long story but i moved out of my mother's when i was 13, i moved around a lot and lived in a foster home for a few years. my mother and i never got along. although we do talk now, we only talk when necessary. we were never a loving family or close. so now i'm trying to pick out a card. they all talk about what a great mother you were, loving and caring and supporting. this is not my mother. i could not find a card that was fitting for her. i don't want to send a card that i don't mean what it says in it.

My recomendation is that you make her a card. I do remember your story about your mom. You must stop letting her get to you. From what you have writen you seem like a well rounded person not because of your mother but in spite of her. By making her a card you are acknoledging her as you mom and telling her what you feel. I am also the black sheep of the family and I find that I have less stress and anger. Be happy with yourself and do not let anyone bring you down. My mom used to buy two birthday cards for an aunt of mine because she wanted to send one that was funny and the other was serious. I never really understood this and still dont but I always say do what you feel. I wish you luck.

Maybe you could find something joke related, or the Mother's Day cards for everybody. They are more general. I hope the furtre brings you and your mom closer.

I wasn't talking to my Mom one year and I just send her a card I made on the computer, just wrote something like, "I hope you have the mother's day you deserve"...somthing silly like that. Sorry your mom was so crappy!!
