Mother’s Day Blues


Happy Mother’s Day to all our mothers, both near and far! Dear Auntie wants to give a special Mother’s Day shout-out to the church and community’s mothers. One would ask, who are these mothers? If you went into a church, you would see these ladies usually in the front of the church with their beautiful hats. The mothers of the church give you wisdom, encouragement, and integrity. 

The community mothers are the ladies whose house everyone in the neighborhood knows is welcome to their home. They keep your secrets and trust, help resolve issues, and they tell you what you need to hear even when you don’t want their opinion.

There are those mothers who have both of these characteristics. I have shared these mothers with you; These mothers have Mother’s Day all year round because young and old love to be around these magnificent ladies. You may want to sit down and talk to our wonderful mothers. I guarantee that you won’t regret it.

Dear Auntie:

Mother’s Day is so hard for me because my mother is no longer living. When I see families together, it hurts me to my core. Please help me find ways not to have jealousy and hurt.

Dear Reader:

I understand how you feel because there’s no one like your mother, and you never get over the loss of her. What I can say is first, no one can replace her; we learn to live with the loss.  There are a lot of things that you can do to help you live your best life. If you have siblings, you can get together to support each other through this time. 

If you have friends whose parents are still alive, I’m sure you would look out for their mother, you probably already call her, and you can celebrate Mother’s Day with their families.

It’s always fun to give back. Why not visit nursing homes? You could also adopt a mom for Mother’s Day, maybe one of the mothers in the community who has lost her child? If not thing, you can hang out with a group of friends to keep each other company.

Remember that Dear Auntie is just giving you advice. It’s always your decision of what you decide to do.
