Grieving the Loss of a Mother 

Only One Mother

by Unknown Author

Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
Hundreds of birds in the sunny weather.
Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.

Grieving the loss of a mother is one of the hardest experiences we will have in our life.

Losing your mother to death is life changing for all of us, no matter how old we are. I became a motherless daughter at the age of 18 years old. I was the oldest of 4. The loss of my mother affected my entire life. My decisions, my thoughts on life and death, my relationships.

I can tell you from personal experience, it is a life-altering event in your life. It forced me to face my own mortality at a very young age. The loss of my mother left me missing her many times in my life. Yearning for her presence to share … the birth of my children, and alter in life. I longed for her to comfort me when my oldest son died.

My mother died at a very young age, so, I never thought that I would live beyond that age myself. What a surprise to already be 20 years older than my mom was when she died.

There are so many emotions you will face when you lose your mother. You will face over and over again through your own life. Sharing your thoughts and feelings with others… will help you heal and provide comfort for others that feel they are alone.
