I realise Mother’s Day is difficult for many, and to those people I send my sympathies. Please be aware that today’s letter may not be for you. It’s from daughter to mother, written ten years after the latter’s death.
A poignant note indeed.
My friend Jan Zlotnick has written 23 Questions I Wish I Could Ask My Mom and Dad Today (https://amzn.to/2VG6ck5), which is unlike any self-help book on grief and loss. It's reflective and can be used as a guide to help talk to and explore memories with the people who are still with you.
For those whose parents are still alive, it's a gift to help capture some of those moments with them; if they're not, it's a chance to reflect on how they raised you and what you might be able to discern from thinking about these questions.
