She mails be packages of microwavable stove top stuffing and Harry Potter coloring books because I'm at college and she knows I love stuffing almost as much as I love colors.

i love my mother because she struggled through so much to give me a life of record playing, pillow fighting, late night rocking to jay leno, kind of creative parenting all while working 70 hrs a week to keep my life as uncomplicated & as full as love as possible.

I love my mother because she's always there for me, she supports me in everything I do, and she will always sew me a sweater or some mittens if I get cold!

My mom is willing to help me get to where I need to go. I'm at college as an art major, and she couldn't be happier that I'm doing what I want She messages me everyday on facebook to comment on my status updates or newsfeed. She sends me packages in the mail for every holiday, with cutesy knick knacks. She's a strong woman that has been there for me and my sisters and always will be. I love the way she giggles, her jokes her hugs, her kisses, her back rubs, her cooking, her smell. She's my best friend and the best mother anyone could ask for.

i love my mother because, next to my husband, she is the person that i am most at ease around. she is comfortable and my best friend. we could talk for hours or sit in silence. she gives everything for her children and never thinks of herself first.

i love my mother because she is amazing. she is super talented--she makes the most amazing quilts like nobody's business. she is always available when i need to talk to her...even when she really isn't available. i have never heard her say a bad thing about another person in all my life...she never gossips and never lets any of her children gossip to her. she has always supported us in all of our endeavors, even when she knows we will fail...she is right behind us, supporting us and there to pick up the pieces when we don't succeed. i wouldn't know what to do without her and am ever so grateful every day for her and so very lucky that she is "mine."

I love my marm because she is everything I want to be "when I grow up"...strong, tenacious, and a survivor. In many ways she knows me better than anyone else. I simply love her.

I love my mother because despite being oceans away from me, she always knows what's going on...

She has an uncanny ability to understand me inside out.

I really am my mothers daughter.

jomama said...

i love my mom for so many reasons, the main one being that she has come to my rescue and saved my life more than one time. she has eight children and she loves, worries, prays over, and thinks about all of them and their spouses and kids like it's a full-time job. she's a mother in her soul and in her fingertips and the tips of her hair. that's all she's ever wanted to be, and she's amazing at it. i'm truly blessed to have her.

My mother has always put everyone else first in her life, sometimes to her own detriment. She is kind and headstrong and tough and fair. She is my role model.

My mother is not only fab at that job- but she is also my best friend. I am not sure what I would do without her! She is the only one that gets me and my crazy ways!

Savvy Addy said...

How can you not love the mum? She always puts everyone else's needs before her own. I adore and love my mother a 100 fold!

Eme said...

I love my grandmother and for the first year ever - I will be spending Mother's Day with her! Yay

fresh365 said...

What a great idea! I will be buying this for my mom this Mother's Day (if I don't win!). My mother has supported me in everything I do, no matter how crazy, since the day I was born. She is a constant example to me and loves my brother and I unconditionally.

joolee said...

my mom and mom-in-law always give me encouragment and confidence boosts when I most need it! motherhood is the best and worst job at the same time and it's nice to have help from the experts...the ones who've gone through it before.

Kristen said...

I love my mom for so many reasons, but one I constantly come back to is her constant pride in her children.

NEVER has she let any of us on to the fact that she doesn't agree with a life choice we have made or even wonder if our choices are possible.

She ALWAYS lets us know she supports us with pride and belief.

acutely cherished said...

My mother rocks because she has always put me (and my sisters) first! I didn't realize this / appreciate this until I became a mother myself. I am way more selfish, I'm currently working on this and trying become 1/2 the mom to my daughter as my mom was to me!!

captain kk said...

i love my mum because she has taught me how to love my baby daughter.

kanmuri said...

I love my grandmother, because every time I call here, she always wants to know everything that's going on with me in far away Japan.
