Each holiday social media is littered with “Happy This, Happy That” type posts that seem shallow and disingenuous. Right, wrong, or indifferent, that’s my opinion on the matter. However, I do have something other than a superficial greeting that I would like to say on the subject of Mother’s Day.
This post is for the moms who no longer have a living mother.
All too often I’ve heard women say they don’t like Mother’s Day because their own mom is no longer on this earth. With the exception of the very first Mother’s Day you endure without your mom, because that one is a doozy, I would strongly encourage those who share the sadness sentiment to change your attitude about Mother’s Day.
If you’re sad on Mother’s Day I assume that means because you adored your mom immensely and miss her greatly. I get that. I lost my mom to lung cancer before I ever finished high school. That was a long time ago, but rarely a day goes by that I don’t think about her. If your mom was also special to you, that means she was a wonderful person.
