Mother’s Day Wishes


“Silence is golden, unless you have kids, then silence is just suspicious.”

– Anon

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to send out well wishes to all women, whether they are mothers in the conventional sense or not.

Mother's Day can be a difficult day, I suspect, if what we hoped for in the motherhood department is significantly different from what our expectations were. Click To Tweet

As we all know, life has a way of throwing curve balls into the best laid plans, hopes & dreams.

If you have lost a child, my heart goes out to you this Mother’s Day.

Or perhaps you never had children, for one reason or another, and your heart never fully healed. I am sending you love to help with that healing.

Maybe you have children but are currently estranged from them? If so, then Mother’s Day might be very difficult. Please take care.

Perhaps you never had kids and are a-okay with that…and are mending the world in a different way? You are the women I can resonated most with, for that is my path, as well.

As for your own mom, if she is still with us, I hope you will be able to connect with her in some way this Sunday. If she is no longer with us, perhaps you will still be able to feel a spiritual connection to her…or revisit a happy memory.

Whatever your situation, I hope you experience peace, joy & gratitude this Mother's Day. Click To Tweet

For me, this year I shall be celebrating Mother’s Day by puttering in my beautiful garden, walking on the beach and doing yoga in the park…remembering my own mom while being out in Mother Nature. One of the greatest gifts she gave me was a passion for the outdoors.

Namaste 🙂

What does Mother’s Day hold for you this year? I would love to hear where your heart is at.

  1. My mother’s birth year is my computer’s password.
    Therefore, every time I go into my computer…..there is my mummy!!!!!
    I talk to her all day long and KNOW she is there protecting me.
    Thanks Mom.

  2. Mother’s Day is a somewhat melancholy day since the death of our son John is 2003. He always brought a bouquet of flowers or a plant. It’s not the same if one of our other children bring me flowers. I miss John and the grin on his face as he presented them to me!
    But, I am also so thankful for our other children and grandchildren. This Mother’s Day will be spent doing a video chat with them and taking our dog for a walk in nature.

  3. Hi Marjorie! Thank you so much for sharing your Mother’s Day thoughts & feelings with me. I will be sending you an extra big hug this Mother’s Day! I am so very sorry your John is no longer here to celebrate Mother’s Day with you 🙁 Take care & enjoy the video chat with your other kids & grandkids. And enjoy the dog walk!!
    Love Maryanne

  4. Love it! What a brilliant way to think of your Mom each and every day, Louise!

    Sending you lots of love from QB 🙂
