    This Sunday will be a different Mothers Day for my family and me. It's the first one without our dear mother, Sue. She passed away right before Christmas, and has been greatly missed by all of us.

    I am blessed and thankful for my daughter, and grateful for what a wonderful person she is turning into. She's a 14 year old, and doesn't give me any grief or worries, and she's healthy and happy, which is all a mother can ask for.

    Yet I miss my mom so much, we all do. She and my daughter were very close too, she was like a second parent to her.

    So this Sunday instead of taking mom out to brunch, we will visit her grave, bring her flowers, and talk to her there.


    Happy Mothers Day Mom, I love you.


    *And a Happy Mothers Day to all of you mothers out there, and for you sons and daughters, go give your mom a great big hug!

    I know the feeling. My dad passed away when I was 22. Our family would go camping on Fathers Day weekend every year after he died in his memory.

    Nice post. It should make everyone that still has their mother alive realize that one day they may be in your shoes, and to not let the day pass without at least a phone-call home.

    I doubt that when my mother passes away I'll be able to visit her grave very often, even if it was convenient. I'm just not very good with the dead since 1996 when I was in Bosnia.

    1-800-FLOWERS.

    God rest your Mom, Echo. And God grant you and yours peace.

    Pop died suddenly two years ago Easter Sunday. This month, I'm adding a new roof and front porch to my home. Pop was always intrigued and delighted by my renovations. This just rings hollow without him. I still find myself wanting to drop by or call him up just to chew the fat. I wish it was otherwise and now I realize this feeling will never really stop.

    Happy Mother's Day to all the USMB Moms!

    Hey Echo, I am so sorry for your loss. I lost mine 20 years ago. You will always miss her. But you know what? You should celebrate YOUR motherhood and your wonderful daughter on Sunday. Someday she is gonna make you a grandma! Life just keeps on rollin. Bless you and your family.. and little man too.

    It's tough but try to be happy on Sunday. I bet your mom would want it that way.
