What Is the Most Vivid Memory You Have With Your Mom You’d Like to Relive?

Mothers provide universal comfort to all children. Their presence, touch, and love are unconditional and immeasurable.

That is why the grief we experience when we lose a mother is difficult to express, especially on special occasions such as birthdays, Mother’s Day, and Christmas. Without her, all of the celebrations and gatherings are no longer the same.

It may take us a year to accept and move on from her absence. Sometimes, even a lifetime isn’t enough. But, we can take comfort in knowing that her love, guidance, and beautiful memories will live on in our hearts forever.
