It's mother's day today, everyone has a mother. Even the hardest criminals were cute little babies that emerged from their mother's womb. The hardest thing i had to do today was stop people from leaving work early just so the business day would not fail. I know how special it is to have a mom. But my mom's already passed away and I have no way to really celebrate it. Maybe i'll pray for her, i miss celebrating mother's day Happy mother's day to the mothers out there and for the children... remember that through her womb and loving care, you exist.

Chip, are any of the people you work with Mothers? It could be nice to honor them in some small way, buy or make them a card to let them know how much you appreciate them, and what they do for you and their children. Mothers day is a great day to honor all mothers, not just your own. It is tomorrow here. I still do not know what to do for my mother other then a phone call....it is always so difficult with her. I like to do nice things, and my idea of nice and hers are slightly different, I will think of something though. It is always nice to be appreciated and it gives a perfect excuse, something to think about for next year, eh, my friend. With Appreciation.

well we had a really bad day at the office and i had little to no chance of actually getting to talk to them. I did at least a minute or 2 of asking them how their day was and what their plans were with their families... aside from that... nada

It would be an idea to log it in your calendar for next year that on April 20th, to make a note of all the important women in your office, and start card shopping or making, and then hand them out on the important day, with a little planning and a bit of thought. You could score more points then you thought you could. With Appreciation.

Hello chipesterkhan, I'm really sorry your mother is no longer with you. I hope you take some confort in knowing that the ones we lose are never completely gone if we continue to remember them. I've been reading your posts. You seem like a nice person. I think she did a great job. You take care.

Each and every day that I have is a day i try to be a better person, all because i wouldn't want to disappoint my mom and dad. My dad's the only one keeping us together although we're all grown up so he had to do some adjustments like try to hang out with us just so we could still have some semblance of a family. mothers are the glue that binds a family together and dads are supposed to just lead the family. so far he's done a great job being both hehehe He had to endure 2 hours of iron man 2 and watching his kids geek out on a comic book character brought to life on the big screen

My mother is still alive and I live with her. Unfortunately, I never I never celebrate mother's day. I don't have tradition to celebrate mother's day in my family. But it doesn't mean that we don't respect and love her. I think by praying for her is good way for you to celebrate your mother. Maybe you can go to her grave, clean the grave yard and bring some flowers to her.
