Navigating Mother’s Day 2024

For those who have lost their mothers and are mothers themselves.

As Mother’s Day approaches, we want to acknowledge the strength and resilience that define each and every one of you. In a world where celebration and joy often intertwine with grief, we honor the unique journey that comes with being a mother who has also lost a mother.


This season, we reflect on the bittersweet nature of Mother’s Day, recognizing the profound love you hold for your children while navigating the complex emotions that arise when a cherished mother is no longer present. Like the changing weather, your grief may take on various forms – from calm and sunny days to storms that bring forth anger, exhaustion, and raw emptiness.


It’s essential to embrace the duality of this experience, finding solace in the joy of being a mother and acknowledging the pain of missing a mother figure. We understand the struggle of answering questions about your children, especially when one holds a unique place in your heart but is no longer physically present. The milestones that pass, the unspoken moments, and the void left by their absence may leave you feeling forgotten and unheard.


In our collective journey, we find comfort in sharing stories, acknowledging the lives that shaped us, and fostering an environment where the memory of our loved ones is celebrated. It’s a delicate dance between grief and celebration, and we invite you to honor your experience in the way that feels most authentic to you.


To those who have lost their mothers and are mothers themselves, your strength is inspiring. As you navigate the complexities of Mother’s Day, may you find moments of peace, support, and the understanding that you are not alone. Reach out to others who share this journey, plan activities that resonate with your heart, and remember that it’s okay to feel a range of emotions.


We celebrate you, resilient mothers, and the enduring love that connects generations. May this Mother’s Day bring you moments of joy, remembrance, and the unwavering support of a community that understands the intricate dance of grief and celebration.


With love and solidarity,
