A moment of transparency:
For years Mother’s Day was a day where all I wanted to do was climb in bed and hide from the world.
Even though I was a mother myself, I found it hard to enjoy the pleasantries because of the grief I felt because of my own loss.
I just wanted to say, If you find yourself struggling with grief this Mother’s Day, process it however you need to, and do whatever feels good to you , whether it's praying, journaling, sleeping, or chatting with your closest friends..whatever you decide
and don't forget to let the people closest to you know let them know what you need even if it’s just zoom or FaceTime call to talk about a bunch of nothing, don’t suffer in silence, No one is ever prepared to lose their mom or the person that was a “mom” to them.
Take it one day at a time, think about & write down the happy memories that you shared while they’re still fresh in your head so that you can always reflect & lastly hang in there.
For me, I don’t believe what they say that time heals all wounds, but I stand in agreement that some days, it does blunt the pain.
Take care of yourself
