🥀  10 Tips for Getting Through a Complicated Mother's Day (AARP Article)

Mother’s Day as a Grownup Isn’t Always Easy!
 
From growing apart to caregiving to guilt, our moms aren’t always easy to love as we get older. Here’s how to deal with Mother’s Day
 
By Robin L. Flanigan, AARP. Published May 08, 2024.
 
It’s almost Mother’s Day, that time of year when greeting card companies and commercials extol mothers and daughters, who lovingly show gratitude and share special, happy memories.
 
But if your relationship with your mom is more difficult than doting — whether that’s because you’ve always been at odds, you’ve grown apart as you’ve gotten older, or personality changes, cognitive decline or caregiving issues have come into play — it can be a tough time to figure out how to recognize the day.

 We had all the kids and about half of the grandkids here for Mothers Day.  It was great!  They brought all the food,, did all the bar-b-quing, so Mother (my wife) enjoyed what she enjoys the most:  FAMILY TOGETHER!    

 

 Such a good day it was!!!!  😀

🥀  Any plans for Mother's Day THIS SUNDAY?

 

Me - Nope!

 

My mom is deceased and my only child (a daughter) makes EVERY DAY Mother's Day. In my opinion it is all about the CARING and not the once-a-year Celebration.

 

To All The Mothers Out There - We are needed and loved!!!  👍👍👍

 

Thanks,

Nicole  👵
