If you have lost your mother, Mother’s Day can be a painful day. The day reminds you that she is no longer around, and brings about sadness and longing that she could be with you.

You can bring healing by actively processing your grief. No one can take your memories away from you. You will always have them. Most moms want the best for their kids and would want you to live a full and successful life however you define it.
