In this day and age of Coronavirus, we are fraught with uncertainties and fears that crop up daily, even momentarily. We are inundated with a lack of work, financial security, and an uncertain future. Many families and friends are separated due to a lack of safety, and isolation exists- and it’s hard to relate to. With Mother’s Day tomorrow, I have some suggestions that will warm your heart and lift your spirits.

When you think of stress, what comes to mind? Where do you usually feel stress in your body? Your answers may change, especially in recent times if you are stressed and in need of human connection. What thoughts give you peace and comfort, especially when thinking of your mother (or mother-figure)?

I work with individuals, couples, and families who deal with family trauma or the outcome of living with unhealthy patterns. In Psychotherapy, we discover ways couples and families can best relate and heal what ails them. This includes statements of each individual’s truth, and developing better listening and creative problem-solving skills working through the issues.

Here’s Some Possible Thank You’s for Your Mom (or Your Surrogate):

Thank you, Mom, for all these and many more gifts…

  1. For wanting me and giving me life.
  2. For taking care of me when I was young and in need of you.
  3. For giving me the best in you when you could.
  4. Be teaching me by example and with instruction, both silly and important things.
  5. Giving me some tools to move on, get ahead, learn a life lesson, or enjoy what was right in front of me.
  6. Ways you taught me by example; reminding me to be the best parts of myself.
  7. For growing and teaching me that there is always room for wisdom and growth.
  8. For being there for me, when I really needed it, and still need mothering.
  9. Thank you for teaching me to drink in the beauty of nature and its exquisite process of growth and rebirth.
  10. And for showing me all of yourself and your beauty, even the parts still growing.
  11. For letting me learn and grow my way, knowing that I can continue to learn, too.
  12. For loving me, as I have loved you, throughout it all.

” Be willing to be your own internalized mother or father, capable of the specific nurturing you still need. Be an attentive parent to your inner child.” Nina Sidell, M.A.

As a child, we are given the caregivers that we inherit. The variation of mothers, fathers, grandparents, foster and adoptive parents raising children spans the globe. In honor of Mother’s Day, in specific, this blog article is written. Mothers worldwide deserve our place in the conversation.

As children experience childhood, they need a safe and consistent nurturing figure with whom they feel loved, protected, respected, and well-modeled. Often a mother fits this description. In today’s world, we have so many configurations of parenthood adding to the primary mother, that is a modern reality.

If you want to increase your appreciation for your mother and pass that on think about these ideas:

  • Mom’s learn how to mother from their mothers.
  • A Mother is the first woman and teacher in their child’s life.
  • All Mother’s do the best they can with the skills and awareness they have at the time.
  • Mother’s teach about safety, security, and the freedom to explore.
  • A Mother is a child’s first love object and attachment figure.
  • A Mother is a child’s first playground.
  • Mother’s love, accept,and see their child’s brilliance and uniqueness.
  • Mother’s cherish their babies, even when they are all grown up.
  • Mother’s are invested in their children’s happiness and well-being for a lifetime.
  • Mother’s give of themselves without being asked or thanked, just for the desire to give to their child.
  • All Mother’s are the most powerful role model for their daughters.
  • All Mother’s are the most significant female role models for their sons.
  • With unconditional love and respect, a Mom and her child can continue to evolve.
  • The relationship between a Mother and her child lasts for a Lifetime; there’s endless love and growth potential.
  • You can be an inner parent to your inner child, seeking healing if you need to resolve trauma, conflict, or childhood wounds.
  • The gift of good Mothering effects children’s entire lives.
  • Mothering is at the heart of our society, if we would acknowledge and cherish it, instilling individual, family and social growth.

Happy, Healthy Mother’s Day to all Mom’s! Thank you for helping to create happy children, families, and conscious parenting practices that help build a happy and healthy society.
