Sunday, May 13th, many of us celebrated the women in our lives with a late morning brunch, handpicked flowers, and heartfelt cards.
But for those whose mothers are no longer with us, Mother’s Day can be a difficult time.
To the families mourning the loss of a mother or grandmother this year, I encourage you to celebrate the family you have around you. As a family, make an effort to spend dedicated time together and keep the memory of your mom alive in your hearts.
You can also honor the mother-like figure in your life whether she is a stepmom, aunt, a friend’s mother, or a teacher or mentor. Who you call family isn’t limited to genetics.
At Hospice of Santa Barbara, we’re privileged to serve a variety of unique individuals who we now consider part of our own family.
I wish all of our community members, supporters, and volunteers a happy belated Mother’s Day, and continued joy for the rest of this month!
