Mother’s Day Wishes for Anyone Dealing with Grief Today.

Real talk: Mother’s Day is hard for me. I struggle with feelings of guilt, loss and sadness.

For anyone who has lost their mother, has struggled with infertility, has lost a child or has a toxic relationship with their mother… seeing all of the Mother’s Day posts on social media can be triggering.

Do yourself a favor, take care of yourself this weekend. I’ll be focusing on the present and being grateful for the loved ones I do have in my life.

I have a wonderful sister who understands me like nobody else possibly could, a best friend who has been by side since middle school,  a mother in law who is kind and supportive and raised the man I’m lucky enough to have married. I am reminding myself of my blessings today and hope you will do the same.

Happy Mother’s Day to all those celebrating and to those that aren’t, know you aren’t alone.
