How often you told Her 'I Love You Mom!'?

I live apart from my parents about 5 years from now. The first time I left home to the City where I continue my schooling in College, the first thing I knew and felt was I really need my Mom. I missed her so much that I cried every-time I reached my rented room after school. I would sat down in the corner and slipped out her picture inside my wallet. I considered my mother the best mother on earth. The only thing I wonder is I could not say 'I love you Mom' to her in person, I do not know. It was a valentines day (I was 2nd year high school that time) that I wrote in a card 'I love you so much Mom' and some other additional message. I saw in my eyes tears of her eyes falling along her chicks, and never helping myself but burst too. Today, she is 55, and I want to show her my love even I am far from home. My grandma had just past a month from now, I knew how much my family grieving that time... that is why I want to do all my best to show to my Mom how much I love her. Days are passing so fast, and we could not hide from the reality that life on earth are passing too. Hence, I will gonna treasure our days here... with love and care...

Bless you child, for loving your mother deeply. It is easy enough to do so. Text her in the beginning so that she won't feel awkward. Just say... I had a good day, ma, and I love you, bye! She'll get used to it. When you see her, just candidly mutter I missed you, ma, and your cooking, too, what do we eat? It is easy enough to say I love you!

Here's the secret for loving your mother - not only will you have a long life but you will also have bountiful blessings beyond your imagination. When the trials present themselves, go through them without fear. Your mother's love had shielded you from all harm. Time to thank God. He particularly showered you with that.

It can be really difficult to express big emotions. And it sounds as though your love for your mother is a really big emotion for you. Like as not, she knows that you love her, but I think that the expression of that love, though difficult for you, is also really important to you. When I try to weigh out whether to do something that is really difficult for me, as always imagine what it would be like for me to die without having done that thing. Then if it is so important that I cannot imagine dying without having done it, I will go ahead and give it my best try. Good luck!

Hi Diva, you are right. I love her so much though I could really express it through words, you know why because my Mom is the best mother I know. She is the best mother ever. We are 6, and she loves us equally. She is caring, I could not even describe how much love she has for us. You know when I was a child, I would cry if she would told me how if she die... I could not imagine my life without her. And I know you feel the same as I do with your mother. Show her that you love her, it's not to late.

Wow mou003, that's a 'huge' words from you. Thank you. Yes, actions is better than words... and with "I love you", the actions would become more than 'soul-touching' just my term hehehehe.

yeah, the love of parents for their children is the most unselfish in the whole world.We should respond in a manner of cherishing,for if you don't it will slip away while you are busy doing other things.We can act like sparing more time to be with them,doing tiny things for them and chatting about things happening around.recently,I saw a charitable advertiement on TV,it shows a little child carries a basin of water to his mother after her gets back home from work.He says to his mother:wash your feet mother! It moves me ever since then.

when i start to move out and live alone, i seldom text my mum or any of my family coz i will only miss them. im just thinking that we are living in the same house and we didnt meet each other coz we are both busy with our job and etc which is actually true. even if we live together we also seldom see each other coz of our schedule. and whenever i call them i always says i love you to them. it was my sister told me to just think that im just living with my family so i will not going to miss them.

Hi homeshoppers, I understand you... I know it can help you a lot from 'homesick'. I am not used to text too when I am here from them, just a weekly message from my sister, my mother do not use cellphone because she could not clearly read the text anymore... and she told me she is old enough to use such technology so I respected her idea. I and my youngest sister who is a high school student right now exchanges some messages once or twice a week. I am just surprising my Mom every time I got some extra to go home... I know we miss each other so much that is why when I am home it is hard for me to go back to the city...

That's actually true. Mom's are really special. They're always there for us. I tell her I love her when she tells me she loves me. And that's almost everyday :)

Wow, good for you pierrella. I think you are younger than me? I know here, specially in our place, teens are the most 'malambing sa kanilang mga magulang'. But there are really mother and daughter/son that are so close to each other. I am not saying that I am not close to my mother, but 'nahihiya ako' to express it directly to her. Thanks. Have a nice day and happy mylotting!
