A moment of transparency:
For years Mother’s Day was a day that I wanted to climb in bed and hide from the world 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.
If you find yourself struggling with grief this Mother’s Day, Do something that is meaningful to you, reach out to a friend, let them know what you need even if it’s just a 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
