Everyone has had a mother. But not everyone has her now.
How can you honor your mother if she’s not here anymore?
Can you allow a day or week to give Mom life again by allowing memories to resurface and be communicated? Here are four ways to honor and enjoy memories of your mother even after she has passed:
- Allow and ENJOY a little time thinking about dear Mom. Make a list of her best qualities that you can still remember.
- Buy a beautiful card and write a note to her, even though you cannot send it. Seal it and stash it away in a box of memories or display it in a private place in your home as you allow your memory of her to linger
- Can you teach your children to honor their grandmother? Tell them some stories about Mom. You can even talk about her mistakes if presented respectfully so everyone can learn from them. Teach your children and grandchildren the same consideration that you would want to be extended to you after you are gone.
- Make a little altar for the day or week that includes some of Mom’s personal items and your favorite pictures of her.
Happy Mother’s Day!
