I know that it is Mothers day in some countries and I would like to send Best wishes to all those mothers on mylot. Mothers are very special. We only ever had one. Without her we would not be here. I have found an old photo of my mother. She was with four of her sisters who had done a presentation on their family. My mother is second on the left. I call it her Hyacinth look. Wishing mothers all over the world a very happy day!

Thank you Alfredo. I have only been given it recently. I think I remember seeing it years ago. She was one of 9 girls. Imagine the rush for the bathroom in that household in the morning!

Very nice photo of your mother Gary. Here is a very old photo of myself, Mom and my brother, taken many years ago in Lugano. Even when I was young we often came to Switzerland.

@garymarsh6 You are right, Mum was very proud of us, she particularly loved her "big baby", he was still young and not fully grown up in this photo.

@LadyDuck Haha I can see that Anna. All three of you look lovely. I guess we were all from around the same era and standards were somewhat different back then!

@garymarsh6 Your mum and my mum both got teased. My mum was so gentle but when angry she would chase me with a tea towel. Oh my!

@Gillygirl It makes you appreciate what they put up with Gilly! I laugh my head off when I see what my daughter is going through, I remind her that I always warned her what goes round comes round!

Thankfully our mother was very kind, loving and did much for us. When she passed on it was like the end of my life for me. The pain indescribable.

Thank you Deborah. They were all good people and you can imagine the family get togethers when we were kids were amazing because everything was well organised and each did some kind of contribution. Twice a year we would have these get togethers. Once in the summer and New Years eve. It was great fun. Sadly there are only 3 sisters and one brother left now and we still have regular contact.

Yes it was a family exhibition of local families where she came from. There were 9 girls in her family and three boys. I think they all did a presentation.

How nice. It is lovely to share time with your parents. Do make sure you spend as much time as you can with them while you can because one day they will not be around and it will be quite awful.

That is good it shows that your mum was a good person and has brought up her daughter in an excellent way. Never a day goes by when I do not think of them in some way or another. Even listening to music from way back then, smells can bring back a memory!

I am afraid she passed away about 25 years ago but that is not to say she is forgotten. You have a great day too!
