I have so many wonderful memories of my mom. She raised me to respect other people's feelings. Not to judge anyone. She would tell me "to thine self be true". What are some of your special memories of your mom? Do you remember what influenced you the most from her teaching and direction? Would you change anything about her, or do you accept her for who she is? Let's approach this with fond memories and wisdom we attained from our mom.

I wish I also have some memories with my mother to remember and treasure for the rest of my life,but not as lucky as you guys.But now that I'm already a mother of two,I will make sure that they would have much memories with me so they could reminisce the things we've been together.And make them proud as their mom.I may not be the best mother but I know I am a good one and I can make that last a lifetime in my kids hearts.And hope that someday,they could proudly say...."My mom is the best".

I am sorry to hear that you don't have any fond memories. I think the hard work it takes to be a great mom is well worth it. By you making sure your two babies have you when they need you, does make you a great mom indeed! Blessings for you and your two blessings! :-)

Hi Miss Jo1272 :),no worries ^^,so kind of you.Motherhood is the toughest stage i could say,especially to those women who have not any experience on how it feels like to have a mother and be taken care of by hers.I mostly depend on my knowledge I've learned from school on how to be a good mom but it could have been much easier if I were given a chance to spend sometime with my mom,maybe then i could have applied some ways on how to raised a child based on my experience. Yes you're right,I always see to it to be on there side no matter what and never allow them to feel neglected.They meant the world to me.Blessings to you too and to your family! :)

Photo of my mother when she was young - My mother's confirmation photo
My mother was my best friend.....and we spent alot of time together...lucky for me. She has been gone for a long time. She was one special lady. But also one that didn't get the credit she deserved for so many things that she did. I can't say in particular one thing that left a lasting memory on me....but it was just who she was that made me want to be even half as good as she was.
