Mothering Sunday can be painful for many....

This Sunday in the UK is Mother's day and like so many events through the year (Christmas, Easter, Valentines, New Year, Fathers day! to name just some of them), whilst celebratory for many, these days both leading up to and the day itself can provoke anxiety, sadness and loss. For those who's mother/parents have died and also for the many women who have found themselves unable to conceive or have experienced the loss of their child/hope/dream at any stage of pregnancy or after - this Sunday can be one of the cruellest reminders and saddest days of the year. Compassion, empathy and simply reaching out to let your friends, colleagues, family, siblings and loved ones know you are thinking of them can be hugely confirming and appreciated. To those who will be celebrating this Sunday, enjoy your day and to those who cannot wait for it to be Monday, please take care and do what will make you happy on Sunday.
