There are certain times throughout the year that can be difficult for people who have suffered a loss. These can be national holidays or important dates such as birthdays, Mother’s Day is one of these days. In the run up, which can be for a good month before, the media is awash with advertisements reminding you of the approaching date and shops are filled with cards and gifts.
For someone who no longer has their mum this can be a difficult time of year. It doesn’t need to have been a recent bereavement, we all miss those we have been close to, and these can feel like direct reminders.
