Mother's Day is coming!

Hi, this is Margaret Daley here. Okay, I admit we have a month to go, but when I was thinking of what to write for this blog, this is what came to my mind. I think it is because I may be out of town on Mother's Day, which will be a first for me. What are some special things you've done on Mother's Day or someone did for you? What I treasure the most have been the big family dinners with multi-generational mothers in the family attending. I love seeing the interactions across the generations. I don't need a card, flowers, candy or anything--just the presence of my son.


  1. Mother's Day this year will be a bittersweet one. I lost my mom just before Thanksgiving, and it still doesn't even feel "real" yet.

    But for years, Mother's Day was a terrible day for me ... I couldn't have kids. Then we adopted The Kiddo eight years ago, and I've had happy Mother's Days ever since. I am so blessed.

    I know my mom will be smiling down from heaven, but how I miss her.

  2. My mother passed away 10 years ago and I still miss her every day. I'm so glad you were able to adopt a child, Cynthia.

  3. Being with my children is the best way for me to spend Mother's Day! Before my precious Mama went to Heaven (5 years ago) we always had a big family dinner, but now it's usually just my family (sometimes my sister and nephew too). My husband picks up fried chicken (my favorite-YUM!!) and we have a nice family meal. ~ To Cynthia--my heart goes out to you--the "first" holidays after losing a loved one seem to be extra difficult. Praying for you! ~ Blessings, Patti Jo

  4. Cynthia,
    Thanks for sharing your heartache and your joy with us.

    My mom passed away nearly thirty years ago, and like Margaret, I still miss my mom every day. But I'm blessed to live near my mother-in-law, whom I've grown to love dearly. And I have my two daughters and one granddaughter, but they all live too far away for a family get-together on Mother's Day.

  5. Thanks for the encouragement! I so appreciate your wonderful words and wishes ... it will be hard, but at least I know where my mom is, and that she is waiting on me.
