Overall, it’s quite possible that your Mothering Sunday is not quite perfect.

26th March 2017 and it’s Mothering Sunday.

Just by way of statistics, 1 in 5 women in the UK are not mothers by the time they are 45.

1 in 4 people in their lives will suffer mental illness. There is no gender difference here. It might be the your mother is psychotic, or she might have dementia , or she might have a narcissistic  personality disorder.

I don’t know what the percentage is of  people whose mothers are absent because they are dead/ rejected their roles at birth/rejected their roles later on.

You might have considerable caring responsibilities for your parent and  a sibling who is not pulling their considerable weight.

Overall, it’s quite possible that your Mothering Sunday is not quite perfect. Mine neither.

I’m lucky I have my boys. Blessings counted. 1,2,3.
