    Mother's Day is coming.

    So what are you doing for your mom this year?

    #2
    She and my mother's PCA and her mother are all coming to my house for the weekend (they live about 2 hours away). We are going to do some sightseeing on Saturday, then have a nice dinner at home. Sunday after opening gifts we are going to a nice restaurant with a great view for a sumptuous brunch. We are then taking a drive up the coast (before going home for a nice nap!).

    I got my mother two dresses for her gift. Still want to get something for the PCA's mother as well (who also cleans house for my mother).

      This will be the first one without mom. I think maybe we will have a big barbecue and celebrate her being free of misery and pain. Lots of tears and beers. Salud Madre!

        It sounds like a lovely weekend (if slightly exhausting!) KLD! Have fun.

          My mom lives in another state. I'm ordering her a Scentsy Warmer and 6 scent packs for her new house.

            Tears and beers sound apropriate under the circumstances.
            I remember my first Father's Day without a Dad,Granpa or even FIL.

              We have mother's day in February and this year it was on her birthday and it was only my second without my mother and no family left in my generations either. I hate to be the oldest in the family and the only one in my generation. It is unfair, my father had his mother until he was 74 and he died 10 years later.

                Bente my grandmother lived to 99, my mother died two years after her mom. I don't know why but always thought my mom would live to at least see her mid 80's I guess I thought that way because he mother made it to 99. My mom was 75 when she died it will be ten years since her death in May can't believe it has been that many years.

                  Anyone that is thinking about putting off spending some quality time with mom because you're too busy, or it's just irritating and she just repeats the same old thing, over and over again.......well, just ask one of us that can't go see mom anymore if it's worth wasting a bit of time to make the effort....

                  It's been fourteen years now....and it seems like yesterday that I was stopping every night after work to check on her. I have a few siblings that thought it was too much of an irritation to have to come and listen to a few repeated stories..... So what! I'd give anything to hear one of those stories again.

                  I don't even like mother's day anymore. I have three kids of my own, and would rather forget about the whole thing. Mother's day to me, was for my mom.....not for me. It's hard sometimes to get it switched to me, and I guess I'm still struggling with it. I guess it just does'nt matter how old you are, losing your parents isn't easy.

                  Then you figure out all the old ones are gone......which means you are now one of the old ones. That's a joy! And on that note....Happy Mother's Day everyone!

                    A friend of mine used to say "My mother is crazy and drives me crazy, but I'm gonna miss her when she's gone."
                    My Mom lives near us and comes over or we talk a few times a week.

                      Lost my mother at age 24. Am now 38.

                      Can't even get to her grave as it's found at gravel crossroads in the middle of nowhere with no sidewalks on the far side of a very small cemetery. One of my small front wheels fell into a hole at a relatives' funeral so I'd hate to get stuck out there by myself! (Botany Cemetery - probably can't even find it on google!) It's surrounded by fields. There's enough room for me. lol

                      I dealt with it okay until David left 2yrs ago .. then I wished I really had my mom around for advice. Not meant to be though. Happy Mother's Day mom wherever you are!

                        i have my mother and i talk to her 3-4 times a week at least, even if its for just to say hey and whats up and to see how its going, it keeps me sane and grounded, we eat lunch together every 2 weeks which is not enough but she lives about 45 miles away, lost my dad to cancer in 06 and growing up even though we didnt see eye to eye on most things, he was an artist and i became what he was and i miss him more than i ever thought i would, its a struggle sometimes to get thru a day that i'm not sad from his passing, its a shame we don't miss what we have until it's gone....i know that may seem kinda of wimpy from a man, but i think its one of the most precious things we can have are loving parents, in todays world there are less and less good parents to teach us the right values.....everyone should thank God everyday for their mothers and the ones that have lost their's prematurely should still keep their memories close to their heart......God bless our mothers and fathers...........

                          I am sorry for those of you who have lost your mother. Reading some of these posts is making me reevaluate the time I spend with mine.

                          Both my mother and wife are getting a gold accented rose like this, but I'm looking for something else to go along with it.



                          One of them is from my daughter to my wife obviously, but I still need to take her to a store yet or see what she wants to make her mother or grandmother. At seven years old they come up with all kinds of ideas.

                          For my wife's birthday last year our daughter thought the coolest thing to get her at the mall was… Hermit crabs! They were being sold at a mall kiosk. I tried steering here to a number of other stores nearby that had lotions, perfumes and other feminine gifts, but nope she insisted mommy would love a couple hermit crabs.

                              Giving my mom a day off. Since I was injured while still a teenager, and her being my caregiver at first and still somewhat. I'm arranging for a cousin to check on me and telling her just go do whatever you want and don't worry about me.

                              She's an angel. Gave up a good 2 years helping me deal with my injury and adjust with life. Thank god for my mother
