Grieving Mothers

As Mother’s Day approaches it can be a particularly sensitive occasion for those mourning the death of a mother.  I am one of those mourners.  Although it has been almost six years since my mother’s death, it will forever  be a holiday for which I can only honor her memory.  We all have our own very personal ways of remembering those who have died, and here are a few ideas;

  • Visit the cemetery, it can be an important mourning ritual. It helps to embrace the loss and remember
  • Publish a memorial poem in the newspaper, church bulletin. Again its another way to honor your mother with a poem
  • Plant your mother’s favorite flower, afterall its spring and gardening represents growth, beauty and the natural cycles of life & death
  • Reach out to other family members and share a meal where you can all talk about fond memories of your Mother
  • Be silly, do something you loved as a kid and recall how much fun your Mom had with you as a child
  • Be mindful of someone else who might need comfort and guidance just as your Mom provided you, let a little bit of your Mom’s good works rub off, you’ll be glad you did!

Please share in the comments below, how do you remember and honor your mother?
