Mother’s Day

Filed under: Now Surviving — by alifefullofspice @ 8:47 pm

Today is Mother’s Day here in the UK and as a mother alienated from her children it is not a day I celebrate. But unfortunately I cannot escape the celebrations as they are everywhere. So I am going to try and approach this day differently from this day forward.

Despite being alienated I am still a Mother to 3 wonderful children. I carried them, gave birth to them, and loved them with everything I had from the very first moment I held them in my arms. No matter how long I am parted from them the love I feel will never fade it will only grow stronger and stronger. As their mother I worry about them every day and wonder, are they OK? Are they happy? Are they being looked after properly? Do they miss me? The questions are endless but I never question my love for them.

One day I will no longer be an alienated mom but a mom with her family back, a mom sharing laughter with her children, a mother welcoming her grandchildren into the world, a mom sharing happy moments and making happy memories surrounded by those whom mean the world to me.

I cherish this dream.

I live in hope that one day soon this will no longer be a dream.

It will be reality.



  1. bless you. as a father it’s equally hard, even though they are commercial days. hearing your story brings hope to others and helps us move forward. thank you.

    • Thank you for your comments. After years of struggling to cope on these days I want to try and see it them differently.
