Do you still have your mother?
December 9, 2008 5:46am CST
I was orphaned from my mother at the age of fifteen. I always miss my mother especially when I had my baby and no one was with me. I envy those who still have their parents with them. Maybe if I wasn't orphaned early I would have been very happy talking with my mother about motherhood.

I'm sorry you lost your mother at such a young age. It must have been really hard. I still have my mother but her health isn't the greatest and I don't know how much longer she will be with me. My mother has done a good job making me crazy about motherhood, we have very different views on how to raise children.

Hi Masmasika, I am sad to hear that about your mother. In my country, almost every pregnant women will like to talk with their mother about the birth of new baby, what should eat, what should do or don't, how to take care. After birth, that would be a sit-month period for maternal, and usually will take care by her mother. You also can try to talk with the mother in law, that would be better.

unfortunately i have lost my mother 5 years ago due to "brain tumor" we really miss her since it is very different living in a home without our mom...my mom before is my best friend becuase she is very open minded and we called her before a "walking dictionary" that help us in doing our assignments. we are very proud having her as our mother.

Sometimes it's not all peaches and cream even if your mother is alive. My mother and I didn't get along for a very long time...we had an argument when I was in my 30's and didn't speak at all for about three years. Since she's retired she has mellowed out a LOT and we get along good now but I never felt close to her until about 10 years ago. My husband lost his mother about 15 years ago and he still misses her. He takes comfort in talking about her and telling me stories about growing up and the things she used to do. Take comfort in your memories of your mom and create new memories with the ones you love.

Hi, sorry to hear that you have lost your mother since young. I agree with you very much, that our parents are so precious to us. My parents are still with us - they are in their 70-80s, healthy and independent, and we are really thankful for that. We cherish every second with them; and make effort to ensure that they are happy and comfortable.
