For the many missing their mothers today

May 13th, 2012 · 6 Comments

Mothers’ Day is a poignant day for those of us whose mothers are no longer with us.

As some of you already know, my mother died a couple of months ago after several difficult years. In those years, and in the weeks since her death, it’s been brought home to me how many people are just head of me or just behind on this rough road.

I wrote an essay in Vancouver magazine about my mother and I and how our bond changed in the last years as she wandered away from me, but, as I wrote it,  I was also thinking of so many others I know who have gone through or are going through the same sadness. Hearing their stories helped me as I was trying to cope. I hope this helps others.
