I love this beautiful quote by Erma Bomback.  I don’t think any lovelier words can be said about a mother who is grieving the loss of a beautiful child.  And while Mother’s Day was intended to be a day of celebration, for these moms it can be a day of pain and loss.

What is the best gift to give to a mom who is grieving the loss of a child this Mother’s Day? 

The best gift of all is the gift of remembrance and remembering can be as easy as:

  • A card in the mail.
  • A phone call.
  • An offer to visit the gravesite together.
  • Sharing a special memory.

Anything to let them know you remember and that you are there to support them.

It can also be a very difficult day for those women who are spending the day without their own mother.  I  love the tiniest, thoughtful gifts.  I’ve got a girlfriend who lost her mother this year and I’m going to send her this candle as a small reminder that I am thinking about her this year and I know Mother’s Day won’t be the same for her as it was last year.

Mother’s Day Candle to Remember Mom

All of us have someone in mind for whom this holiday will be just a little harder to get through because they are missing an important mom or child in their life.  Reach out and let them know they are being thought of!
