Mother’s Day is approaching and unfortunately it isn’t a happy day for everyone. For some, it is a joyous occasion filled with traditions and loving exchanges. But for some, Mother’s Day reminds them of a barren womb, the passing of a child, an estranged relationship, or the loss of a mother.
Just recently, I lost my brother and in 2006, I lost my maternal grandmother. These two experiences shook up everything I knew to be true. It has been difficult to recover but I have found that the key to a positive grieving experience is a good support system. I truly believe that GOD gives me everything that I need. In that blessed mindset, he has delivered friends who have stood by me like the closest sibling and older women who have coddled me like a grandmother.
During this Mother’s Day, I ask you to seek out those close to you and show them a special kind of love. Embrace and show gratitude to the women who are amazing mothers to their own children AND women who are mothers to those that are not their own. Maybe you are mothering someone close to you. I salute you! Keep giving love, where love is needed.
I believe that Mother’s Day is a day for gratefulness. If it is normally a sad day for you, seek something to be grateful for and celebrate that thing!
