Remembering Mom

By: Betty Dangler
Thursday, May 6, 2021

With all the reminders that Mother’s Day is approaching, there are many emotions that come to the surface for those of us who no longer have our moms with us. You are constantly reminded to pick out the appropriate card, to order flowers, or to make reservations for Mother’s Day dinner. You can be sure that Mother’s Day has never been the same for you.

With all these reminders, how do you find the support to help you with this day?  Have you thought about calling your dad and your siblings to talk about your mom and to share the memories and stories that you all cherish about your mom? Yes, you will experience a range of emotions, from laughter to tears but the conversations will open a connection with your family and even help you feel more connected to your mom. You will begin to understand that these conversations and the range of emotions you experience with them will begin to feel more normal and healthy.  

You may even invite others to talk about their moms and anyone else who was important to them in their lives. When you begin these conversations, you are taking the first steps in the healing process.

I am inviting you this Mother’s Day to begin the conversation, to toast your mom and to celebrate her life.
