    • I LOST MY MOTHER AT THE VERY YOUNG AGE OF 17.  AS AWFUL AS IT SOUNDS, I FIND MYSELF ENVIOUS (NOT IN AN UGLY WAY) OF ALL MY FRIENDS WHO STILL HAVE THEIR MOTHERS.  TO ME IT‘S “JUST ANOTHER SUNDAY“.  I DO FIND MYSELF REFLECTING ON MY MOTHER AND WISHING SHE COULD HAVE MET MY HUSBAND AND SON.

    • I lost my Mother in November of 1997. I miss her very much she was and is my best friend. I feel her presence with me now. I just in a different way. She still guides, loves me, granted me the earthly foundation for which I rest upon today.

    • My mother passed away when I was 18.  For many years, I ignored Mother’s Day altogether.  Now that I am a Mom, we still don’t go over the top.  We might go out to breakfast, call my MIL, etc.  My daughter makes me a card and buys a plant for me through the school plant sale.  DH usually cook a nice dinner.  Actually, our plans this year include a trip to the local Six Flags.

      Although the day will stir up emotions because I miss her and still feel a sense of loss, it is nice to use Mother’s Day as a tribute to my mom.  Sometimes, having emotions over a loss isn’t all bad.  It’s ok to miss a loved one.  Allowing the emotions to be there is a way to deal with them and to keep the memory of a very special person alive.

    • This will be my 2nd MD without my mom. How do I cope? My honoring her and her memory. I will chat with my sisters on the phone about good memories. I always try to focus on the good. And knowing my mom is in a better place with her friends makes me feel better.

    • Michelle & all ladies, thanks so much for your replys.  I focus on happy times with her but there will always be that void that no one other than “Mom” can fill.  I still hope everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Dayhappy

    • My mom has been gone since 1989. She was 57 and died in a week from Pancreatic Cancer. I just miss her more every year - especially during my own times of need - You never outgrow needing your mommy.

    • Janatoo said, “You never outgrow needing your mommy.”

      Very true!!  Even at 40, I still hear myself thinking, “I want my mommy!”  from time to time.

    • My mom passed in September of 2001, unrelated to 9/11. Seems like a long time, but a short time too.  It’s still weird to think sometimes oh yeah, I don’t need to buy a Mothers Day card when at the store. Usually, Mom’s day is all about me now, and my husband’s mother, who lives thousands of miles away.  So, it’t not so much a big heartfelt loss on our end in a way.  But I always feel it.
