Mothers Day will be here soon. My mother passed away in May of 1980. 0ne day before Mothers Day. This was a very sad day for me and other family members. I'm sure there are plenty of you folks who have lost your mother or maybe she is very sick and its just a matter of time. My mother was a beautiful person. I wish I had been able to have spent more time with her before she passed away.Tell me about your mother. Are you and her real close, or is a day to day (even though you love each other)struggle to get along? What are you planning on doing for your mother on her special day?

Well, this is going to be a tough Mother's Day for me as my mom passed away February 21, 2007. It's still very fresh in my mind. I think about her all the time, I miss her even more. I had been spending quite a bit of time with mom over the past several years. We used to get together every Friday, we would go to breakfast or lunch, then we would go shopping when she felt up to it (I would also take her to her doctor's appointments). I have 2 sisters, when she sold her house 2 years ago, she moved in with my older sister, and my younger sister would see her every other weekend or so. I spent nearly everyday with her the last couple of months, as they were spent in the hospital wit a couple of days with her at home in between hospital stays. This year will be spent remembering Mom. I don't know what my children have in store for me, I just hope they'll understand (which I know they will) if I'm a little less than happy that day. Thanks for letting me share about my mom. I'm sorry about your losing your mom also. Happy Mother's Day.

When I was growing up, my mother and I are not close. We often compete with each other for my father's attention. But when my father got sick and passed away, my mother and I both learned how to support and value each other. I love my mother so much and I would everything for her.

I have my own family now but I still celebrate mother's day with my mom. We gather together with my family and brothers. I'm the eldest and the only girl in the family. As the eldest, I'm the one who is in-charge in planning and marketing too. My husband is a great cook and always our chef in every special occasion. The preparation took us a day before the celebration. This is the only ways we could say thank you to our dear mother.

Hello Sharon, thank you for posting this discussion. It is a small but great tribute to our mothers. My mother passed away year 1993 in an accident. She is the best mother for me, or anybody could ever have. How I wish that I have the power to turn back the time. Today May 4, 2007 is actually her birthday and I'm planning to cook something special a small tribute for her. I hope that one day we will meet and say I made her proud of what I am now. I miss her so much...Advance Happy Mother's Day to All!

My mother and i have been through tough times lately. I am pretty sure there will be more to come. There were times when i would just like to walk out on her and my entire family, build a new life apart and away from them. But these are always spur-of-the-moment feelings that usually go away after a few minutes. She is my loving and caring and nurturing mother after all. I owe her my life. No matter how rough things could get between us, i just could not be totally angry at her and leave her. She still is quite young but I try to savor every time i get to spend with her. And for Mothers' Day, i plan on bringing her to a world-famous island resort. She deserves a break.

Hello Sharon, I'm so sorry to hear about your Mother passing away one day before Mother's Day. It sounds to me like you really loved your mother and you had a beautiful relationship. Even though she's not here on Mother's Day and It's a very sad day for you, remember you will always carry her love in your heart. As for my relationship with my Mother, that is along story. My mother decided on day she didn't want to be a mother or a wife when I was 8 years old. She left and never came back. The happy part is now I'm a Mother of three great kids! My Mother's Day is never sad anymore. And in the end, I'm a better Mother becauce of my mom.
