Miranda and Daniel have. They have suffered despair and remorse over a decision that they made in the beginning of their marriage. They had agreed, that it was for the best if they didn't have children right away. But years later, when Miranda and Daniel felt ready to start a family, they suddenly found that they were unable to. For years they tried unsuccessfully to conceive a child. So as a last resort Miranda and Daniel decided to give fertility treatments a try. But even with the treatments, they were unsuccessful; while their medical bills and their marital stress continued to flourish. Miranda, who was already feeling helpless, began the slippery slide of defeat into the hole of isolation and depression.
On Mother's Day Miranda went to her Mother's house. But soon after she had arrived there, Miranda found herself walking out. She could hear her family whispering around her and she just couldn't stand the pity anymore. So out she went, to breathe in some fresh air. When Miranda composed herself enough to confront her family she went back inside. But what was told to her shocked and devastated her, and was so not what she had been expecting. Miranda then drew upon an inner strength, something she had thought she'd lost long ago. She used this strength to support a loved one, and in doing so she not only helped that person, but she also pulled herself out of the hole.
I found this story touching and I enjoyed reading it. I could feel the tender compassion in Lynne Constantine's writing as she uncovered and revealed the depth of anguish and the utter helplessness that Miranda and Daniel felt as a couple. I found my self caring and wanting to learn more about them. I hated to see the story come to an end. I would recommend "Mother's Day" to anyone wanting to read a heartfelt and moving short story.
A Mother's Day is an enjoyable read! I'd like to know more about Miranda.
