Still on a little high from all of the touching and beautiful pictures and tributes that were shared during Mother’s Day weekend via @themotherseries 😊 Although Mother’s Day is over, my goal is to continue creating a safe space for support and community to those who have lost their mom. Special thank you to each of you who shared your stories and are still reaching out to share! SWIPE LEFT💕🌸

Today was day 2 of filming for the second season of @the@themotherseries and as I lay across my couch and type this, I literally can not stop smiling. My heart is so full knowing that this is not just a project to me, but an outlet I created for people to feel comfortable having a conversation around this topic and sharing real stories, emotions and everything in between to find healing. I didn’t allow myself to acknowledge the hurt, the resentment, and the anger I felt when she was no longer here physically with me. But I’m finally at a point where I can say her name and speak about her openly and honestly and feel good about it. I feel this women’s energy all the time motivating, pushing me out of the bed so that I’m not late for work, cursing me out when I make foolish decisions, and chilling with me when I’m lonely (she was a Taurus lol), so it all makes sense. I’m encouraging anyone who has lost their mom to do the same - celebrate your mom on Mother’s Day, and cry if you need to, but celebrate her life. And celebrate it everyday! 💌🙏🏽✨ ——————————————————————————— If you have a friend or relative who would be interested (all ages are welcomed), please tag them @themotherseries xo

Happy Sunday friends and fam! It’s that time of the year again - Mother’s Day is approaching. As you know, The Mother Series is a safe space for those who have lost their Moms, to connect, comfort each other, laugh, acknowledge grief and celebrate. This will be our second year filming diverse stories of people who have shared this experience, and were interested in sharing your story! Please see above for all details. If you’re interested or know someone who might be, please email us or tag a friend/relative. For those who do not reside in New York City, you can still share your story with us by video. Email us for the next steps. Thank you!💌🙏🏽✨

It’s been a trying start to the New Year for me, but thank you for this candid shot @kolinmendez that literally describes my current mood about it all. Sitting back, trusting the process and watching God do his thang. #onwardandupward #trustingtheprocess #alliswell #brooklynmuseum #mondaymood
