My mom is no longer with us but; what I loved is she always had time for me. And when I was a little girl we would take a bus up to the square and good shopping which was a treat or just walk to the park near our house.
What I love about my Mom is that even though she passed away 7 years ago, she still is alive to me - in my heart and soul. I don't live with a sadness - although I do wish she was here in actual person and not just spirit. But I live with her joyful memory and the way she loved and lived life. She is truly with me forever.
What I love about my mom is her amazing spirit, she has the ability to always make me feel loved, no matter what I do, or have done, the times I have hurt her or made sad choices, her heart has never closed out on me. She supports my endeavors whether she agrees with them or not, because she has that much love to share. She used to tell me, how she kept me alive(I was almost a miscarried baby) and she has continued to keep me alive and thriving 25 years later with her love. My mother has a kind and gentle heart, and an easy laugh and she is just the greatest blessing I will ever know in my life. She doesn't ever take me or my family for granted, even when sometimes we do her. My mother is completes my heart and soul everytime i speak to her, with every encouragement and thought, she is always with me and my family.
I loved the way my Mom would do things that were good for me in a fun way. Like we would have "cocktails" before dinner (V8-Juice) in a fancy glass so I thought I was one of the grown-ups!
My Mom was a very sweet and loving woman. We always believed her faith and family came first in her life. She is well missed.
My mom died in 1989 and I have no children, but my former mother-in-law and I usually go out to lunch for mother's day. Her only child, who was a very dear friend of mine, died 10 yrs ago, so I try to make sure she realizes she's still special.
I love being able to tell my mum just about anything.
My 86 year old mom is vibrant and fun. She loves us three daughters, 4 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren. Her concern and love is shown to us everyday with a phone call, a note or a hug. Mom, Virginia, or Grandma Ginny, helps take care of an autistic great granddaughter and a dying granddaughter everyday. Mom cooks special meals for them. Her green thumb is amazing and she teaches all of us how to grow beautiful gardens. The stories of the past and family tree are amazing! She remembers so much.
I love that my mom is 94, still living in her own home by herself, and sharper than me. I am blessed.
My mom was fun to do things with. I have many great memories of activities that we did together. She also gave me my love of crafts. She loved to make things and give them to others.
What I love and admire the most about my mother is her hard-working nature. She taught me how to be independent and self-reliant. That is an important trait in this ever-changing world.
My mom has always been there for me. Now that she is older, it is my place and my two other sisters to help her out when she needs it. The roles have slightly changed but all is all there is no feeling so good as having your mom with you.
There is so much I love about my mom. I love that she's so different from me, but that she's passed down to me so much of herself, too. Her love of books, her humor, her silliness (though she'll claim I got that from my dad...it's just as much her), her sensibility, her love of the Lord, and her encouragement. She has always been there for me and gives great advice. She taught me to read and encouraged my bookishness. And she's as close a friend to me now that I'm an adult as any of my girlfriends. She is truly a blessing and I'm so glad God gave her to me as a mother. She really is the best.
I love my mom's generous spirit. She's such a giving person and likes to see people happy when she thinks about them and gives them something they love.
My mom is the best, i am so blessed and happy she is still here especially after losing my dad in 2010. Growing up we clashed some as most people do and i couldnt wait to leave home and make it on my own but the older i get the more i appreciate her and all she has done for us. Happy Mothers Day to my mom the best anyone could ask for and Happy Mothers Day to all moms enjoy YOUR day!
I love that my Mother is such an open and giving person who loves her family. She freely showers her love and affection on me, my brother, and my Pop. She's the type of person that will correct someone very quickly when they ask her "How old is your stepson?" by telling them that she's been a part of his life since he was 5 yrs old and there is no "step" about it - he's her son too even if she didn't give birth to him. That's an attitude she learned at the knee of her father and one she continues to pass down. She has a giving nature and will try to help anyone in need. Her motto has always been that if you are hungry she will feed you, if you need shelter she will shelter you and if you just need a friend she will listen so that you don't have to carry the burdens alone. For this and so much more I love her more than words can ever truly express.
My precious Mama was the BEST!! She's been in Heaven for ten years and I still miss her terribly. We were truly best friends, and she always encouraged me in all I did.
When I was a little girl, the only kindergarten in my small town (Located by the Atlanta Airport) was a private church kindergarten, and my parents simply could not afford to send me. But that was okay, because my mother sat with me every day, reading to me and with me. So now I owe my love of books (reading AND writing!) to her.
My Mom loves all us kids unconditionally. She's a great friend who is easy to talk to and non-judgmental. She makes it very easy to be with her and to love her.
I think one of the best things a mom can give her children is "time". I remember my mother sitting at the table with me as I did my school homework and telling me how important it was to always do your best. And she loved to tell me about our ancestors and how they came to America...family was very important to her.
What do I love about my Mom? Absolutely everything! Sadly, she left us a week shy of Mother's Day, six years ago. She was my best friend. My inspiration and my mentor. I miss her laughter. Her quirkiness and her abundance of hugs. She was one of the greatest women I've ever known. :)
My Mom, is 87 & has been a widow now for one year (April25, 2015). I know she misses my Dad a lot (they married 1950!) but she holds her head up high & tackles life like a lady! She loves to read & I share all of my books with her. She is young at heart, in her soul & mind. She would do anything for anyone. She taught school for many years. Mom has taught me to keep my chin up, a smile on my face & to be a caregiver & helper to others! I love my Momma with all of my heart...don't we all love our Mommas!!
Thank you for each & every wonderful book you have published!!
I love that my mother is my friend. We also do a special lunch for our birthdays, call each other a few times a week, and have theater tickets together among other things. I love that my mom is one of my biggest supporters.
I lost my mother 25 years ago before I was even married. She was a wonderful woman and my only regret is that she didn't get to see my boys.
She had a great sense of humor. She passed away from an enlarged heart after a virus attacked her heart muscle. She said she was like the animated Grinch in the scene where his heart grew three times it's size. :-) Now I think of her with a smile every time I watch that show.
I love that my mom is always there for me. She is an amazing role model. She worked while I was growing up so that I could go away to college. She did not have that opportunity when she grew up and she felt it was important for. The best thing about my mom is that as I have grown up we have only become closer. I would say my mom is one of my best friends!
I am adopted and the woman I call Mom did not carry me in the womb, but she is the best Mom a girl could ask for. Since four years old, she has been in my life and loved me like her own. I never felt unwanted or unloved and it's all because of Patti, my Mom. She has a huge heart and a kind soul and she taught me about being good to others and true to myself. We are not only mother-daughter, we are best friends too.
What I love about my mother is she is always there for me whenever I need her. I can talk to her about anything and she always has the right answer that I need.
I really enjoy your books. I just discovered them.
My Mom was one of my biggest fans. She loved me unconditionally and always believed in me. I lost her last year in April. I know she is in Heaven but I still miss her so very much. Appreciate her while you have her. Once she is gone, you can't get her back. Happy Mother's Day to all mothers!
I loved my mother very much, she was always there for us growing up. I don't know how she worked full time but still had lots of time for us.
My mother will be 91 on July 5. She lives alone and is pretty self sufficient. Recently mom, in her quiet way informed me that this year would be her family's 100th family reunion and as the oldest member,she would be attending. Then she turned to me and said and you will be taking me. I just smiled because everyone knows you have to do as mom says.
She plans on living to be at least 100 and doing it in her own home. That is the independent mindset she has instilled in all her children. I just admire her tenacity and her always lpoking forward.
My mom died a few years ago and I still find myself starting to pick up the phone to tell her something. She was always there to listen whether it was good news or bad news, and that's something I think I'll always miss.
like her cooking
My mom passed away on their 48th wedding anniversary, Oct 8, 1987. It was so sad for my dad and all of us. She was the rock of our family, a Godly woman who loved the Lord, loved to serve in their church and loved her family. She made the best pie crust (I buy ready made at the store), the best cinnamon rolls (the pastor even commented on that at her memorial service) and the best gravy (all the holiday dinners were at our house because it was the biggest but she made the gravy). I never heard a sharp word come out of her mouth and I never heard her gossip. She encouraged not only my dad, but my brother and myself and then later the grand children. She was a prayer warrior, praying for not only her family but friends and other family members and missionaries supported by their church. I miss her everyday, but I know we will have a wonderful reunion in Heaven one day. I love you mom!
I was born on my Mom's 20th birthday, we are often told her look a like. My mom gave me the love of reading. She has been very supportive.
My mom was loved by everyone she met. She came through an abusive marriage and blossomed. For her 60th birthday she and her best friend took a road trip throughout the western part of the USA. They traveled throughout the Southwest, along the west coast and across the northern part of the US until they hit the Mississippi River and headed back to Florida. Mom was obsessed by two things: buffalo (bison) and patriotism. She wore a buffalo pin on every outfit and visited places like Mount Rushmore regularly. She died three days after being diagnosed with lung cancer. I will never get over the loss. I still want to call her and sometimes think "Hey, it's been a while since I've talked to Mom." She always believed in me, made sure I went to college to fulfill my dream of becoming a teacher (26 years so far!), and was my rock when I was a single mom. I wish so much she could have met my husband of three years, she would have so loved how my life has turned around. Thank you, Mom, for being my mentor and inspiration. I truly miss you every day.
love spending time with my mom. Going shopping and having lunch together. We both love Victorian collecting such as tea cups and teapots and going to tea lunches at tea rooms.
