Hey, those of you who still have your moms or mums, let them know how much you appreciate them and the fact that they had the courage to give you life...I'd kill to have my mom here today...she died of cancer at age 30 .......so give your moms a call or a hug on Mother's day

Last thing that made me smile was seeing more birds arrive , the Baltimore Orioles, Rosebreasted Grosbeaks, Catbird, Wood ducks.

Yes, I really do miss my mom. She was my best friend. It's funny, now and then I will have a dream in which she and I are doing something together. It is always something ordinary, like shopping or having lunch at one of our favorite restaurants. When I wake up, I feel happy because I feel like I have just spent quality time with her. That picture doesn't do her justice. She had very thick, baby fine golden blonde hair and dark brown eyes. Her hair never went at all gray.

Kades, I lost my Mom to cancer 13 years ago, 2 weeks before her 70th birthday. I too will be visiting her and taking her favourite flower...a cymbidium orchid with a tag that says "just 'cause". I used to give her one every once in awhile for no particular reason (or sometimes there was) and I would write that on the card. I have taken one to the cemetary every year.

I do have the wonderful opportunity to spend Mother's Day with my Mother-in-law who is also a very special lady in my life. I am not a Mom myself and combined with losing my own, Mother's Day is a difficult day. But DH's Mom and my rent-a-daughter make it a special day for me.

Barbara, I have similar dreams about my Mom, or sometimes, when I am doing something we did together, or that she taught me, I get a warm fuzzy feeling as if she is there with me once more.
