Mother’s day is very different for me this year, and it’s the first without my mum, who passed away after a very short battle with cancer in December. I miss her more than words can say, so this Mother’s Day will be tough.
I know I’m not alone in feeling this way, as I know many people out there find mother’s day a struggle.
So this mother’s day, I want to reach out to all of you.
Let’s all come together
This mothers day, I’d like to celebrate all the amazing mothers out there.
To the mothers who have lost children,
Those who have lost mothers,
To those with strained mother relationships,
To those longing to be mothers,
To those who have chosen not to be mothers,
This day is for you all.
Mothers are the backbone of society. They are the ones who hold everything together and often put their own needs last. They are the nurturers, the caretakers, the teachers, and the role models. They are strong, compassionate, and resilient.
This mothers day, let’s honour all of the amazing things mothers do. Let’s celebrate the ones who are still with us, and let us remember the ones who are no longer with us. Finally, let us come together as a community to support and uplift each other.
This Mother’s Day, I want to acknowledge all of the struggling mothers. This may be difficult for you because you have lost a child, your mother is no longer with you, or you have strained relationships. But, I want you to know that I see you, and I honour you. You are a mother, and you are loved.
There is no right or wrong way to celebrate mothers day. Every mother is unique and special in their own way. So this mothers day, celebrate in the way that feels right for you.
Happy mothers day to all of you. May you find peace, joy, and happiness this day.
Some people might choose to spend time with their mothers, while others might choose to reflect on the relationship they have (or don’t have) with their mothers. I invite you to celebrate in your own way. Spend time with your children if you have them. Reach out to your mother if you are able. Honour the mothers in your life, whether they’re biological, chosen, or both.
Take care of yourself this mothers day. Nurture yourself in the way you need. You deserve it. If you only do one thing today, make it something that makes you happy.
Let us support and uplift each other
This year, I will celebrate mothers’ day differently without my mum, but I will embrace my children and spend time with them. I’m sure many of you will be doing the same whether your mother is alive or not.
There are so many different types of mothers and relationships with mothers, so here are just a few thoughts on how to celebrate mothers day, whatever your situation.
For those of us who have lost our mothers, let’s honour them. Let’s think of all the things we loved about them and miss the most. Let’s spend time with those who share a special bond with our mothers.
For those who have strained relationships with our mothers, let’s try to understand them more. Let’s forgive any wrongdoings, try to move on, let go of the past, and appreciate that they are our mothers. Finally, let’s reach out to them and spend time with them.
For those of us who are not mothers, let’s celebrate the women in our lives who have mothered us in some way.
Let’s honour all the different types of motherhood out there. Whether we are biological mothers, stepmothers, adoptive mothers or just motherly figures to someone, they all deserve our love and appreciation.
Lastly, let’s remember that mother’s come in all shapes and sizes. There is no right or wrong way to be a mother. So happy mothers day to all of you, in whatever capacity you celebrate it!
I invite you to share your own stories and advice in the comments section. Let’s celebrate Mother’s Day in a special way this year.
