Mothers Day is a beautiful celebration, but it’s also a time of heartache for those of us who have lost children, who have lost our mothers or grandmothers, or who are struggling with infertility. To help honor this grief, I’ve created several cards, which are free for your use. I just ask that you please respect the copyrights and not alter or take credit for these images.
Remembering With You
These cards, which have been designed to print at 4x6in. dimensions, feature a butterfly that Louie and I came across while walking through Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. The messaging has several variations that acknowledges the different types of loss someone may be facing: the loss of one or more children/babies, the loss of a mother, and the loss of one or more grandmothers. Below are descriptions of the different cards, along with thumbnails that you can click to view them individually.
Still a Mother
These square cards, which have been designed to print at 5.5in. dimensions, feature an edited photo of a flower I took during a walk to a nearby columbarium, and messaging that acknowledges motherhood, despite the loss of a child or pregnancy. Mothers Day can be especially painful for a momma who’s lost her first baby.
Thinking of You
This card, designed at 7x5in. dimensions, has simple messaging, which can be used on Mothers Day or any other time you’d like to show support. The photo was also taken during one my walks around my neighborhood. For women struggling with infertility and who have yet to have their first child, Mothers Day can be a difficult reminder.
