There should be a revamping of our calendar. No, not a major one. All I'm saying is that Mother's Day, Memorial Day, and Father's Day shouldn't be so close. I know I'm by far not the only person out here that has lost the one parent they ever had. But having the holidays so close is a double-dose of pain I'd rather split into more managable sections. Put Mom's in March, Dad's at the end of September. And, PLEASE... Get corporations out of them. Its family time. But just like Christmas, it's become so much of a corporate spectacle that it's really deteriorated from the family day it was meant to be. I also think though there should be a day we celebrate all those single mothers out there who endured the battles of raising kids on their own. Special treatment to those whose kids stayed out of trouble would be called for of course. I'm not talking about making it cool to be a single parent. I'm talking about saying thanks for keeping going when they could've easily given up, put us up for adoption, and gone back to a normal single lifestyle.
So there's my thought for the day and I hope that somehow, this next week I manage to not anger anyone as I got the feeling I'm going to end up blogging about something controversial.
