please be tender + aware

Mothers Day is a day of joy, but a day of tenderness + grief for some.

Please be gentle on each other. While celebrating mothers of all kinds, be aware that some will long to be but cannot, or be grieving, angered by, anguished, torn apart and unsettled by what is essentially a commercial day for expressing love that should be happening EVERY day.

We, the ones who are hurting, do not want you to dim your joy in celebration or motherhood.

But today puts a spotlight upon a part of life that we live with on a daily basis in the most unkind and superficial way. Sometimes, the day goes fine. Other days, it’s a dull ache. Other days still, the power of our grief takes our breath away.

But still, we want you to live and honour your joy. Live it in full gratitude, in honour of all we do not, or cannot, have.

Thank you so much! I think it’s so important for us to be gentle with each other, and to meet in the middle when it comes to something as multi-faceted as motherhood. X
