Mother’s Day often reminds people of losses they don't often speak of, like the mom who neglected, reject, abused or abandoned them. Moms are not supposed to leave or hurt their children, prefer substance addiction or a romantic relationship instead of their kids. Unfortunately, many do.
Perhaps a son or daughter had a wonderful mother who has died, is dying, or suffers from a disease that
has stolen the mom they were from them, and they are missing her on every level imaginable.
Many moms are grieving a child or children that died, included mothers who've lost adult children, teens, infants
at birth or by miscarriage. The hole in their hearts forever exquisitely tender and incomprehensibly deep.
Mothers who are estranged from their kids and/or their child has an addiction, mental illness, severe disability, or has rejected them or their family may ache for a call or visit home or the restoration of health and/or sobriety.
Some dream of being a mom but carry the heavy grief of that unfulfilled longing, whether due to
infertility, past abortion, miscarriage, medical conditions, or the fact that the family and/or marriage
they dreamed of never materialize.
If Mother’s Day is a difficult day for you for one of these causes, or for any reason, we acknowledge
your loss, sadness and pain. Your feelings are valid and real. It's okay not to be okay. Please be extra
kind and gentle with yourself today.
For all of you who are missing a special person in your life on Mother's Day, and every day you are not alone.
