    To all the mothers on the board - Happy Mother's Day.

    There are a few times a year I really get to missing my mom and Mother's day is one of them. She has been gone for 21 years already.
    She has missed so much of my life. I was only 33 when she died, in the midst of starting a new life. She knew and loved the man in my life, but never saw us get married. My kids were blessed in having spent a couple of weeks for a few summers with her until she was too ill to handle them. I am grateful for that.

    We moved to TN after she passed, so she never saw our home here.
    She never got to see that I became a quilter and that a lot of what she taught me about sewing I use today, and really appreciate her teaching me to sew.
    She never got to see my kids as married people. Never met my grandkids.

    But, she will always be with me in my heart. I am not be able to call her or go visit her. I wonder if she knows how often I 'talk' to her.

    And it is at the times that I miss her and want to talk to her and ask her things that I realize.... I'm THE mom now!
    And then I begin to wonder how will my kids remember me and feel about me when I am no longer here for them?

    Happy Mother's Day Mom! Thank you for all that you were to me and to so many other people who loved you. We miss you and love you.

    I know and feel your pain. My mom has been gone 6 years come this Sept. The pain still feels like yesterday. She and I made a good team when it came to sewing. I would sew and make all her and my clothes and she would do all the hand work on anything for me since I dislike hand work. She took a quilting class with me.....our first journey into quilting. She only came bacause, she later told me, she wanted to be with her daughter......awwww mom, I really miss you. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there. Hugs to you QuiltingGrannie and all those whose moms have passed.

    I was fortunate to have my MOM until I was 52.... it's still a huge hole when Mother's Day arrives. I am thankful to have a loving DD...and grand dog....we will celebrate tomorrow together.

    I have felt sad all day. I got to keep my mom for 71 years. She has only been gone for 3 years at the age of 97. Seems like I miss her more every day.

    Wishing all you mothers a Happy Mother's Day.

    No matter what kind of relationship you have with your mother when she is gone you will always miss her. I miss mine although she has been in heaven for 12 years, Often I wish I could share something with her.
    Happy Mother's Day to you with happy memories.
