I miss my mother today. Have you lost your mother? What would you say to her if she were here?
For Mother's Day. A tribute to the mothers who we can no longer visit with or ask advice from or share our common and uncommon interests.
that she is everything in me that makes me a mom and wife
and a person and she means the world to me and I am so proud to be her daughter
I lost my mother a little over a year ago. My daughter was sixteen at the time, and we rarely had dramatic issues - but now... I would like to ask my mother, "How in the world did you survive raising 5 girls?" HA! NOW, I GET IT! I have a wonderful daughter, but sometimes we butt heads. I look back at my teenage years and how my mother and I butted heads, too.
I would also like to tell her that I am sorry for not calling or visiting more. I sure would have worked in more time with her.
I love you, Mom, and I sure do miss you. Thank you for everything you taught me.
If she was answering this, she would probably ask "Why are you missing someone who is dead? Get over it and concern yourself with the living"
But the reality is, I have still not come to grips with her death. It has been less than a year, and I still think about asking her for recipes, or other questions, and of course I can't.
Mom, I miss you.
My mom is still alive, but, her health is not good. She has diabetes and blood pressure and struggles daily. I could do so much more for her on a every day basis if I had a profession worthy of mention.
Unfortunately, sharing your knowledge on a daily basis about nutrition, exercise and diet is not something that is really attractive to the world. It won't make you rich or happy. However, If it helps someone you will have accomplished something good.
I wish that, I had a magic-lamp that you could rub to make things change. It's a shame that it won't ever happen because nothing exists that you can't already visualize and accomplish. We are so controlled by other's beliefs and opinion that it's on the verge of turning us into something sad and ridiculous.
Instead of really working, I spend my day's writing my memories over the Internet. If only people could see further then their own nose-tip. The truth is that true potential is often hidden, stolen or reprimanded by bigger then you because it represents competition.
My current lifestyle doesn't allow me much time with her either. I have a family of my own already to take care of. If only, I had that magic lamp with a genie inside. My one wish would be to turn back time and get her out of her misery to make mom happy and proud for once in her life.
I lost my mother just over 10 months ago. I miss her every waking hour of every day. It is impossible to put it into words.
Help me!!!! I am so lost right now. I seem to have no way out and fear for my OWN children. What would YOU do?

My 12 yo daughter asked to see a pic of her birthmom. Does this mean she does not feel I am her mom?I have offered before; she always said no. We have always been so close, and I guess I feel a bit rejected, but would NEVER tell her that!! I have always told her positive things about adoption and...
