Each year when Mother’s Day rolls around, I celebrate a number of formative, loving people who have nurtured me into being in variety of beautiful ways. I find myself deeply grateful that all these individuals and communities have come into my life.
I also recognize that this day can be very complex and deeply painful for many as we remember mothers and children who have died, ponder struggles with infertility, deal with painful memories, or grapple with separations and estrangements.
If you find yourself grieving or longing today, please know you’re not alone. Today, I’ve listed a number of excellent links that bring home just how complex this day can be.
You are loved.
