 Most of us will have at least one special moment you have shared with your mother over the years. Can you tell us what moment stands out for you? Why was this moment so special?

I have lots of them. But one was when my mom said she don't see me as an adult but as her little girl.

My mom wrote me a letter telling me how excited she was over the birth of my dd and how she wished she could be there. I was in Germany at the time. We came home six months later and she was diagnosed with cancer and passed away a year later. That letter means the world to me, as she didn't really get much time with my two oldest, and never got any with my youngest.

As a single mother, I needed someone to coach me through delivery.  Mom helped me through it.  She had given birth 6 times, but never really understood much about it.  My delivery went very rapidly and she made it to the hospital while I was pushing.  She held my hand and was very supportive.  Until, that is, the baby arrived.  Then she dropped my hand and gawked at and cooed to the new baby.  It was so funny.  She always loved the babies.

This is so special because my mom was the oldest of 9 raised in Communist Germany in the 1940's.  She learned never to show emotion and often mothered that way.   On this special day, though, she was just like any other mother/grandmother.

When my mom was there with me for the birth of my 3rd child through natural child birth. Afterward she said, 'did you have all of them like that?, that's more than I could handle!'

I felt like she so respected me as an adult!




Plus, I was glad my mom was with me as I had wanted her through my other two births

I was 11 years old when I found out that my parents were separating. My sister told me in such a way that I started crying and my father confirmed it by saying "Your mother is running around with guys and I am not a mother so I will put you in an institution" (still haven't forgiven him 100% but I am in touch with him). I cried myself to sleep and my mother came into my room and she listened calmly and told me that she has been looking a long time for an apartment and finally found one and if she will need to sleep on the floor it will be right beside me! I hope to be even half of the mother she was for Little Gregory. She still has some lucid days

There were so many I couldn't ever choose 1!  We laughed so much together, my Mom, sister and I.  She is gone now 5 years from cancer and not a day goes by that I don't miss every little and every big moment, from a phone call, a special occassion whatever.  I guess most of all I can say that I told my Mom I loved her and she told me every single time we spoke up to her last breathe! :'(
