Thank you for starting this, I have been maudlin today because of it. I want to go to the cemetery but I don't find any comfort there. Love you mum, I miss you still so much. I think you would be proud of how I've coped recently ❤💐

Sat and thought of you Mum on Friday, second anniversary when you died. It was a hard long death: we did our best to make you comfortable at home. I’m glad you were able to die at home (rather than hospice or hospital), surrounded by mine and brother’s love. We didn’t see eye to eye on everything in life but despite the 24-7 care for weeks, I know you were grateful for being at home. I love you Mum xxx

1st Mother's day without my mum. I'm over 60 so that's quite a few. We went out for lunch or she came to mine for dinner. Usually got her perfume or something to wear. She loved her perfume and her fashion. Hard seeing all the cards and Mother's day stuff in the shops. At least now some companies ask if you want to be excluded from the Mother's day emails
Got nice flowers for the grave
Miss you mum 💕

Happy Mothers Day Mam 🌹 You were and always will be the best mam ever ❤️
I love and miss you so much. My biggest regret is that I didn’t get chance to tell you 😭
We’ll meet again. Until then …. I love and miss you so much 💕💞💕

Happy Mother’s Day to the sweetest loviest most selfless Mum that I could have ever wished for. I love you so much always have and always will. And to my DearNan thank you you for being caring and loving bless you. Miss you so much every single day of my life xxx

Happy Mothers Day. I miss you so much. You were the best mum ever and I hate that my kids won't know you. Love always.

Happy Mothers Day mum. It's been 3 years since you went and I'm so sorry we were not there at the end and hope you understood that we would have been had we been allowed to. I hope dad gave the the hug I asked him to give you when he joined you a few months later and I hope wherever you both are you are still making each other cry with laughter everyday. I miss you more than you could ever imagine.xx

Happy Mother's Day. 29 years since I was able to say it to you. I was so lucky to have you.
GuiltyPleasure · 19/03/2023 01:28
It will be 9 years next week since you died. I miss you every day, especially every Sunday night, our weekly catch up phone call. You'd have been so proud of what your grandchildren are achieving in their lives. We were so lucky to have you. Eternal love

A lovely thread.
Jesus, my dear dead mum was hard work at times, but a good woman who always encouraged her children. I still remember what she said when I said I was going to live in Australia: "Eee, that's a long way off". But no repining.
I miss the annual herding of my brothers to remind them to send flowers and cards.
I'm laughing at the autocorrect that had "rumba" instead of "remember". Not a bad idea to celebrate mums.

Thinking of my DDIL who never had a mother's day with her youngest child, RIP Laura, we are taking care of your girls xx
Namechanger1002 · 19/03/2023 02:32
Had 15 mothers days with you and 30 without you. You would do my head in if you were here but I would give anything for the chance to roll my eyes at you and for you to see your grandchildren. Don’t always do you proud - i am a work in progress! You dying when I was young cast a long shadow on my life and I still haven’t quite accepted that I won’t see you again. On the plus side I don’t ever have to eat your god awful sausage pasta again 😂

Thank you for starting this thread, OP.
Second one without the best mum in the world. I miss you and love you loads.
Geppili · 19/03/2023 03:56
I miss you every single day, Mum. I wish I could see and hug you one more time and tell you how much I love you. You were taken so suddenly, it still seems like yesterday even though it has been six years since you passed away. Love you always.
ShippingNews · 19/03/2023 04:04
I put a nice collage of pictures on my Facebook this morning - my kids only ever knew Mum as a frail old lady, so I put all her "young" pictures up there - Mum ice skating, having a picnic , young mum playing with her first baby on the beach, etc. She looked so happy then. Happy Mother's Day, Mum xxx

It’s DHs first Mothers Day without MIL who died last October.
We both miss her so much but DH is going to find it especially hard today.
Much love to her and to all of you who are missing your Lovely Mums xx
AmberGer · 19/03/2023 04:54
Thanks for the thread.
It's my 3rd. Without her.
Didn't have the best relationship but I miss her more than I thought I ever would.
Love you Mom ❤️

I lost my beautiful wee mummy Ann she was only 44 years young, We had a birth a wedding and a death within a few days. I was on honeymoon when my wee mummy died, I was not told for a few days after. The guilt I carry I blame myself she didn't want me to marry the man I did "Ex now" we had words at the reception It breaks my heart I never got to say I was sorry. My wee mummys birthday was just there St Patrick's day she would have been a beautiful 73 year old growing old disgracefully. She was my best friend, my mummy she is my Hero. So much has changed in my life, some good some not so good. I truly believe that if she was here my life would be so different. I love and miss you so much. To those who are blessed to have their mummy treasure her, tell her how much you love her because I can tell you tomorrow is not promised. Happy Mothers day to all you beautiful Mums here and in heaven xxxx

12 years since you passed but probably another two where dementia took your memory. Miss you lots. DH and I still reminisce about your funny little expressions 🥰
1984Winston · 19/03/2023 06:22
Have been without my mum for such a long time but she's missed always, I hope she realised how much we loved her
TakeMe2Insanity · 19/03/2023 06:38
Thank you so much for starting this thread.
It’s the first without my mum. She was amazing.
Tomkirkman · 19/03/2023 06:45
It’s my second without her. It feels worse than the first. I was still in the shock phase last Mother’s Day.
I lit a candle this morning. Had a chat with her photo. But I miss her desperately. I don’t think Mother’s Day will ever be a pleasant day again. Mum preferred Mother’s Day to her birthday.
I would give anything to see her for even just a minute.
