Mother’s Day usually brings up images of flowers, brunch and pastel colored greeting cards.

But for those who don’t have a mother, this time of year can stir up mixed feelings. Visiting a grave, sharing memories of her with loved ones, or starting new traditions with your own kids can be ways to cope. There are also people who don’t have a “mom” in the traditional sense, and a step-parent, older sibling or family friend has stepped in to fill that role.

For people who don’t have a mom this Mother’s Day, how do you celebrate? If she’s passed away, do you still have a tradition of celebrating her life? Or in her absence, how has someone else stepped in to fill the role of mom?
