  1. Mothers’ day is a mixture for me. It’s a time when I’m so happy to have my mom and to be a mom to my great kids. It’s also a time when I remember some great mothers I lost.

  2. Mother’s Day is an overall wonderful experience for me. I love my mom to pieces, I love my kids, and they love both me and their grandmother. It’s pretty much a love fest.

  3. Mother’s Day is generally happy for my family. It’s just that we spend so much time visiting our moms that I don;t get as much time for ME.

  4. I agree that we do the best we can. My mom is great. She is fun and loving and I am so blessed. I am sure you know that your mom did her best too. I’m sorry she’s got alzheimer’s now. Hugs for you this mother’s day!

    1. It is reassuring to know that she loved me and loved me with all of her heart and did her very best. It makes me so sad that her childhood was so hard.

  5. It think it’s a great thing to try to learn from your own upbringing. It’s definitely a cycle and it can get better and better with each generation.

    1. I think so too! And knowing that gives me great hope for the future. I know we can’t all get everything right, so I enjoyed seeing how each generation works to make the lives of their children better 🙂

  6. I’m not quite sure what Mother’s Day is to me. I love celebrating my beautiful babies, but it’s also a day I miss my mom. Who passed away when I was 16. So the day is a mix of celebrating and missing.

    1. It is a lovely time to spend thinking about good times. Now that I’m a mom, I can appreciate all it took for my mother to do all she did!

    1. We all always try to do the best we can do. For all our successes and failures – that I believe. Even the worst of parents have such a strong bond with their children that, fail or succeed, I believe they try their best 🙂

  7. This is an awesome post indeed. I think as mothers we all pass on to our kids what we feel we were lacking in our childhood. I have an awesome relationship with my mom but it only happened after I was older. I love to make Mother’s Day a happy day for my mom by making it her day. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Don’t me wrong, because I love the concept of Mother’s Day. However, I feel Mother’s Day shouldn’t be reserved for one day (although it makes retail merchants happy) since mothers should be celebrated everyday. 🙂

    1. It’s so interesting that you say that! As I was researching this post, I learned that the woman who started Mother’s Day was so upset that Hallmark (they were specifically named) began to profit from the holiday that she tried to have the holiday that she worked so hard to establish rescinded!!! I agree – we should always show one another that we love each other every single day!

  9. Usually Mother’s Day is a special day for me. Even though, I don’t live near my mom I make sure I speak to her.

  10. Ideally I would love to be really pampered on Mother’s Day. But realistically it is one of those holidays that I am actually busy. My Mom is usually here visiting and I try to plan something special for her and my Mom-in-Law. But I’m not complaining. Their company is definitely priceless! 🙂

  11. Happy Mother’s Day! For me it is a day filled of gratitude and always a special day to spend with my boys….as well as my mom and Nana. So sorry to hear about your mom’s illness.

    1. I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I don’t think anything, other than losing a child, is worse than losing our parents. After such a loss, Mother’s Day can be an especially difficult time. Please be gentle and kind with yourself and look for love and support throughout the day.

  12. Mother’s Day has always been a happy day for the entire family however, this year is going to be quite different since my granmother passed away only a few months ago!

    1. I’m so sorry for your loss. Although I haven’t lost my mother, I can imagine this must be a difficult time for you. Take care of yourself and have a wonderful day.

  13. Mother’s Day is a mixture of feelings for me as well. On the one hand I have kiddos that make it special but my mom and I weren’t very close up until recently and I also have a special woman in my life that I considered my mom over the years.

    1. It is always interesting to hear about different types of child/maternal bonds. They can come in many shapes and sizes. Celebrating with your children is always the best!

  14. I have a little one in the house still, so it’s nice for me. I like the homemade cards and genuine awe that goes into the efforts he does. 🙂 You’re right though, the day is as different as our circumstances.

  15. Wow, this is an eye opener for me. I always just saw Mother’s Day as a day that I gave my mom a card and what not. Now I see there is much more to it.

  16. Mother’s Day is near to coming, this is one of special day for those mother like me.

  17. Mother’s Day had always been a happy one for me because my husband and my son always made sure it was special for me. I also make sure that it is special for my mom too although she is a thousand miles away from me.
