I just wanted to say that Mothers Day is the hardest day in the year for me.My mother passed 3 years ago and I still cry like a little baby on Mothers Day.I couln't even go to my mother-in-laws house this morning.I know I am wrong for not going.But everyone there seems to be so happy.I have no relatives at all except for my son who is 21.No sisters,brothers,cousin,aunt or uncles left.He didn't want to go either as he gets upset on this day also.So I wanted to stay home with him.So,anyway I just wanted to Happy Mothers Day to all of those who have lost the most loving person in their life.Their Mom.

I lost my mom 12 years ago. Today I spent working..and in the midst of tryng to keep busy, I spent part of today mourning for her still. She taught me so very much, yet let me make my own mistakes. She was a woman who reached out to so many and would not accept any acknowledgement or awards for all she did...it was her belief that it was her responsibility to help others. I know how you feel. Somedays I would just like to have her back for 15 minutesjust to talk or to go out for lunch just one more time. She was my mom, my best friend and the greatest grandmother to my kids that anyone could have. Today I miss you mom! Happy Mother's day to you...even in your grief.

We are so very lucky to have mothers that were such good mentors for us. And lucky to grow up in houses where love lived. As I have grown older and met more people I have found so many whose families were less loving and close. Many never had so much as a birthday party. Someone was smiling on us!

Hi cipher I know the feeling. The first couple of years when my mom passed were really hard too. I couldnt go anywhere where people were celebrating and having a good time. Its been 8 years now Im just starting to go to mothers day events. I went to one yesterday and it was at my familys. We also celebrated my aunts birthday. I promise you it will get easier. And dont worry about people being mad at you because you didnt attend the partys. Im sure they will understand. Take care and hugs to you!

We are on the same shoes cipher. My mom also passed away 2 years ago and I can just greet her in my prayers. I still do remember my mom not only on Mothers Day but always. I remember her birthday, wed anniversary and offered prayers and mass in the church. I miss her. I sent greetings to friends, family and inlaws who are mothers. I received greeting from friends, co-workers, husband and family this day. My young son also greeted me and I appreciated all of them for this especial day for mothers.

It was just heartbreaking to read about your loss. I'm so sorry. Never having lost a parent I can't begin to imagine what you're going through. I hope people around you understand that on this particular day you are not in a cheerful mood and that it does not mean that you disrespect your mother in law. They must give you the space you need. I hope you feel better soon.
