Motherless Day

Some holidays are just more loaded than others, depending on our individual experiences. When you’re grieving the loss of your mother — either because they’ve died or because you don’t have a relationship with them — what the heck are you supposed to do with a holiday like Mother’s Day? 

When a listener reached out to Nora after their mom died to ask for advice on moving forward, Nora decided to tap into the Terrible Rolodex of accidental grief experts … past TTFA guests and listeners and friends of the pod who have been there.

Special thanks to Kate Spencer, Jessica Pearce Rotondi, Kari Harbath, Megan Palmer, Danielle Henderson, Dani Shapiro, Dr. Anna Roth, and TTFA Listeners Jeremy, Shana, and Analisa.
