While Mother’s Day can be a joyful, celebratory holiday filled with gratitude and love, it can also be a complicated time for many people. For those who have experienced the loss of a mother or mother figure, the day can bring up feelings of sadness and grief. Maybe someone in your life has recently lost their mother, or perhaps this is the first Mother’s Day without your own mom. Even if it’s been years since she passed, reading through these loss of mother quotes might provide some comfort on Mother’s Day and beyond.

Mother’s Day can be especially complicated for those who have lost their mothers and are also mothers themselves. It can be hard to feel loved and appreciated when you’re also navigating trauma and grief. When you’ve lost a loved one, especially someone as special as your mother or your father, reminders filling your social media feed can be incredibly difficult to see on a holiday like this. If you have a friend or family member who has lost their mother (or if you’re experiencing that loss yourself), acknowledging that the day might be hard is important. While you might not always be able to say the perfect thing, sending a quote to let them know you’re thinking of them and their loss may make them feel just a little less alone in their experience.
