Mother’s Day survivors


PERHAPS your Mother’s Day was a symphony of bouquets of roses, boxes of soft- centres and ravishing roast dinners consumed in the company of your besotted offspring? Maybe you spent the day paying tribute to your own magnificen­t mum?

Or were you one of the excluded, forced to field a very different reality? If you have lost your beloved mum or are still struggling with a traumatic relationsh­ip with her, if you were given up for adoption or if you have found it impossible to become a mother yourself though you very much want to, the day can be a tough ordeal that only serves to highlight all you have lost or all you never had.

Take courage Mother’s Day survivors – you are through the other side and it’s a whole year till the next one.
