Mothers’ Day is both a day to celebrate and to grieve. Some are celebrating the mothers they still have. Other’s are grieving the moms they lost or never knew. Still others, find themselves doing both while also being celebrated as a mother. It’s a day that brings up any number of emotions. The last two or three years, my own grief has ambushed me on Mothers’ Day. I’ve felt blindsided by it, quite frankly. Strange still, my mothers are still alive.
