A Different Kind of Mother’s Day

Posted by ididnotknowwhattosay on May 10, 2009

Mother’s Day can be particularly difficult for those that have lost their mother.  No matter what your age, the bond between a mother and her children seems to be everlasting. 

A friend of mine lost her mother about 10 years ago and we were talking about how Mother’s Day is always difficult for both of us since we have both lost our mothers.  She said that she did not celebrate Mother’s Day because she became very sad and missed her mother during that holiday. 

Although she did not celebrate Mother’s Day, she does celebrate her mother.  On her mother’s birthday she puts together a big family picnic where all of her siblings gather with their extended families and celebrate their mother.  At the end of the day they exchange stories about their mother and everyone releases a balloon in her honor.  It is their sign to their mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, that she is still loved and in their hearts and memories. 

What a beautiful celebration of life and remembrance.

For those that have lost their mother’s…how do you celebrate her memory on Mother’s Day?  We would love to hear your stories.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom – We love you and remember you today and always.  Your love, encouragement, and strong belief in family stays with us today and always.

Love Lori
