Lost my Mother at 14, now I’m 34. Here in the age of social media it’s tough to see everyone post about how wonderful their moms are, and how thankful they are to have them, etc.. I am happy for them, but it’s not hard to feel very much like I’m missing out. I usually post some memory to which my family will say something nice about and then I try to keep my mind on anything else. A lot of holidays can be like that being that I have little family left and the family I do have is only practical to see once a year. Friends are important, obviously. Any kind of distraction is good and an avoidance of social media if you don’t want to encounter the barrage of reminders that this day may be painful for you.
