When Mother’s Day is Difficult


Flower and window photo by lizjones112 I have a confession (anyone surprised?). I have mixed feelings about Mother’s Day.

On one hand, I love celebrating all the women who have made a difference in my life (thanks, Mom!).

On the other hand, a long journey of infertility has left my heart with some tender places.

 Through my work as a counselor as well as helping facilitate grief support groups, I’ve discovered there are other reasons why Mom’s Day can be tough. Losing your mom, sister, or daughter, for example. Even divorce or deployment can cast a shadow over this holiday.

So last year I wrote an article called “When Mother’s Day is Difficult.” It’s all about how to take good care of you on Mother’s Day. It also covers what to do if you’re quite happy but a friend or family member is hurting.

You can post it on your blogs, e-mail it, print it out, share it however you’d like. 

I’ll be thinking of you this Mother’s Day and praying for God to bring your heart whatever you need most…
