Mother’s Day is usually a time to celebrate and give thanks to that special woman we call mom. But what if your mother has passed away? Facing Mother’s Day after the death of your mother is difficult. This year, celebrate the life of mom instead of focusing on her loss? Here are some things to help make this Mother’s Day a bit brighter.
We’ve all been told that expressing our feelings is an important step in the healing process. So try writing your mom a letter. Fill the page with memories of special moments you shared, questions you never had a chance to ask, or simply what you miss most about her. Anything goes. Save your letters in a safe place, and return to them every year. You’ll find comfort in the healing you’ve made over time.
In many parts of the country, MMother’s Day arrives at a perfect time for planting. Design a small theme garden that can be added to year after year. Your theme garden could feature varying shades of your momâ€™s favorite color, a group of special herbs, or wild flowers that are perfect for arrangements. If planting a garden is a bit too time consuming, buy a large flowerpot and design a mini theme garden instead. Both way, planting flowers is a beautiful celebration of your mother, and you’ll find the physical activity very calming and therapeutic.
Photographs provide us with a wonderful way to capture precious moments. Dig through that big box of photos, and choose a few of your mom that are extra special. Consider choosing pictures of various sizes, and ones that capture the changing relationship you and your mother shared. Select distinctive picture frames that capture the spirit of your photos. Group the photos together and display them somewhere you wouldn’t expect to find family photos, such as the bathroom counter or near the kitchen sink. Youâ€™ll be sure to smile when greeted by this surprise.
Whether itâ€™s her Curry Chicken or Chole Bature, moms have that special knack for cooking up comfort. So this Motherâ€™s Day, why not try cooking your momâ€™s special something yourself? Consider sharing mealtime with a few women who have touched your life in a meaningful way. This thoughtful gesture celebrates and give thanks those who continue to enrich your life.
Although Motherâ€™s Day wonâ€™t ever be quite the same again, enjoy using these ideas to honor that very special relationship. Celebrating this day with your wife and Mother-in-Law can go a long way to help you get past this otherwise depressing day and will brighten it up with a unique ray of light.
