last night i read chicken soup for a woman's soul. there it depicted the love of mothers for their children i read these women's stories of love and pride for their kids and their profession of love for their little angels were so overwhelming! suddenly i miss my mom. i long for her love. for so long nobody showed me a motherly affection. i was never close to her see. i remember, i was about seven that time, i pretend that the pillow beside me is my mom and i'll hug that pillow as i cry myself to sleep and that my deepest desire was to hear her say that she loves me. it is difficult to grow up without a mom to even guide you on your way... there were times when i found myself broken hearted and wanted someone to sooth the pain but of course no one's there. now, i am wondering... how does it feel to have a mom? how does it feel to have a child? how does it feel to be loved as a child and love as mom? does it feel wonderful?

It is hard for you, I know. I never grew up with my mother or father either. I was raised by my grandmother. It was just the two of us for so long. You may want to read my book about my life stories, it is called picking up the pieces: a woman's journey

the easiest way is to go to www.publishamerica.com and key in Carol Roach when you do a search and the book, picking up the pieces: a woman's journey will pop up. that was my first book and I since wrote a novel since then.

yes it's really wonderful to beloved by a mom, i'm really sorry to hear that you've lost your mom. In fact i've lost my dad when i was still a kid , he was the one who loves me deepest in the world , but he'd never come back to me again. But thank goodness, my mom give all her love to me, though she is a dissabled person , but she never show her weakness in front of me, and she awlays told me how to be a strength guy, she couraged me when i feel depressed, she save the money for me to go to school, she guide me to be a honest person , and she told me no matter what difficuties i'd meet just face it. Though we've never live a rich life, but my mom creat a happy life for me, and i learn to grow and be strong from her, now i am working outside alone, but i'd cherish all the love that my mom ever gave to me.

i am sorry that you missed growing up with your mother. a mother is someone who knows you inside out. she knows instinctively what you feel, if you are sick, if you're angry, if you're happy. they will give you even the food they are eating if you ask for it. at the same time, she will let you do what you want because she knows that when you get tired or hungry, you will come back to her. I know this, because this is what i felt with my mom, and these are are what i feel about my children. Mothers are the best...
