How was your relationship with your mom?

I think my mom is really cool. I respect her a lot, I see her more as a friend than an authoritative figure. We could talk about anything under the sun. She was really my best friend while I was growing up. She pushed me to excel in my studies, she was there when I had to go through painful break ups. She's really a sweet person. How about you? Please share something about your relationship with your mom.

I would have to say that I do have a lot of respect for my mom and I am glad she is in my life and my childrens' lives. At times we can really go at it but I guess although I look at her as my mom, I also look at her as a good friend and a sister. She was young when she had me and I was actually her second child. She gave up my older half sister 3 years earlier. I have since met my older sister and she is grea, we have a good relationship but it is still a bit with some tension. My younger sister and I agree that we will not have that close of a relationship with our older sister as much as we have with eachother from growing up together.

I've been staying with my mom and looking after her for a few years now and she means the world to me, I can't imagine life without her. She's always been my best friend as well, always there for me no matter what when I was a child and all through my adult life. It seems weird how roles have been reversed; she brought me into the world and took care of me, now I'm here to take care of her although I don't use those words in front of her because she hates to feel dependent. That's OK, I don't say or do anything to hurt her. I'm happy to be able to be here for her. Annie

My mother is one person I admire most. She would do bold things when it comes to family-related decisions. She is not fond of making plans, but whenever she decides on something (regardless of the hazy outcomes) she would pursue in doing the stuff. She is one tough person. She is a friend. She is also an athlete. She is my nanay and I miss her so much. :)

Growing up my mother ruled with the iron fist. She was to busy being a mother to be bothered with trying to be my friend. After the birth of my first child, we became more friendly, but mom was always the mother. I love her dearly; she is gone now and I sincerely miss her wise counsel.

My mom was my best friend, teacher, and most importantly the BEST MOTHER. She prepared us well in this world and she raised me and my sister well. I have high respect for my mom and I would like to say that wherever she may be right now, I hope that she knows, I love her very much! She passed away on October 8, 2004. Although the family were expecting it to happen sooner than we would have wanted to, it was her health that didn't cooperate. I know that she wanted to live longer and see how we've turned out to become in this world. Because of the unconditional love, guidance and respect she'd shown to me, I would say that I'm the luckiest daughter in the world to have her as my mother! She taught me the the values of the bad and the good. She showed me two sides of the coin and not only one. She was the best thing that happened to my life, and in my lifetime, I would want her to know and also feel that I was also the best thing that happened to her! (^_^)

MY relationship with my mom was very good although it was even better with my dad. My mom is a very wise woman and she had very appropriate ways to get me to learn, understand and do things. I didn't always like it - like the time she made me sell her my motorcycle because I had come here on vacation and has spend all my money and then was asking her money for an extra course that I wanted to take. She had the money but she wanted me to learn how to be more responsible so she told me that she could buy my motorbike. The darn thing was right there and I couldn't touch it until I bought it back LOL But I did learn :) MY mom was always there when I needed her, but also allowed me to spread my wings and fly. SOmetimes she even allowed me to make some mistakes that I ended up learning from. She got me in the choir and drama and even a job as camp counselor and made it as a game, something funny or interesting, while what she was doing was helping me not to be so shy and to be confident in front of other people. She listened to me and was really good at not lecturing just talking. She still is. And I still tend to go to her when I need some comfort. THe problem is she is so far now and the telephone is not the same thing.

My mother is one person I dearly love and respect so much. We are close, but we only get the chance to be together when she's not busy. She seeks my advice when she has certain concerns, and I seek her advice too when I have problems. She is always willing to help us whenever we are in need. She is a good mother and loves all her children no matter how we differ from one another. My mom is one of the most important persons in my life.
