Lost my mom when I was very young. She was like this. Very special. Thank you for the tribute to all mothers lost to us and all of us who long for them. Very lovely.

As Uncle Bob suggested, I DID call my mom today and told her I loved her. Even after just calling her yesterday.

I ALMOST let it slip that I was coming. I caught myself and explained it so that it sounded like I wasn't...

One day, I went to mom's house to take her shopping. She put on a little makeup and I told her how beautiful she looked. She did. Black wavy hair and red lipstick. She appreciated the compliment. After shopping, we went to lunch and I told her how much I loved her. She said she had waited so long to hear that. Well, I was a kid and you don't always think of those things, you know? The next day she died suddenly. Tell your mom you love her. Tell your kids you love them. Tell everyone who you love that you love them. Life is fragile, precious and meaningful.

That is heartbreaking Nancy, and I'm glad that I called my mom today. I'm also glad that I get to tell Nick that I love him every morning before he leaves the apartment for work.

Because.. you just never know.

Yep, yep, yeppers! Every time after I speak to my children, I say, "I love you." Even if they don't say it back.

My heart goes out to all that have lost their mom or dad or other loved one.
Sattie,
my dad had a knack for calling just when I had no time to talk..It use to get my goat..Now I'd give the world to hear his voice..And I did...My two boys both sound alike on the phone and sound just like my dad at times..Yesterday my heart almost stopped when my oldest called and when I answered I heard Hello dare!! my dad's exact words each time he would call...It took my breath away..My son, just gulped on the other end and said he was sorry..But I told him not to be..That it felt good to hear that voice saying those words once more.

That is wonderful Katie..I'm so very lucky, I see my kids all 4 of them on Sundays and often during the week..Each and every one gets a hug,kiss and I love you just because and they now give them back to me and their dad and best of all to each other...The babies picked up on this very quickly and it is so wonderful to feel those little arms round your neck and the sweet voices say I love you ma...Life is so good.

It is more important that you say you love someone, than if they say it back. Sometimes they just don't get it.

my mother has been gone for 35 years and I still miss here very much she was my rock when it came to cooking she taught me the basics. I could all ways call and ask her opinion and git a good reply. If any of you folks out there have a boy in De Molay ask him about the flower lecture.. It is just for moms and it is precious
