For many, Mother’s Day is hard.
If you never knew her, it’s a day of imagining.
If she walks the Earth still, but not beside you because things fell apart, it’s a day that makes the emotional distance feel that much more profound.
If she’s passed on into the next life, it’s a day of longing and remembering.
If you wanted to be a mother but are not, the day can feel like an empty crib.
If you’re a single mom doing it all by yourself, it can feel like another day nobody sees you. I won’t pretend to understand your unique situation, but know there are millions who feel as you do today.
I hope it hugs you. love, your friend Bunmi
