Sunday Poser # 27 & Happy Mother’s Day

A very happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmothers, daughters and mother figures.

My question this week is what are your best memories of Mother’s Day?

I never got to celebrate my mom. She died when she was 26, and I was 6. This not only left a big gap in my life but also left me a bit unprepared to fulfill the duties of a mother when I became one.

Well Time is a great teacher and I learned to be the best I could be as a mom. I am so proud that both my daughters and daughter-in-law are great mothers. They are wise, loving and are raising their kids so well. I must say that the mothers nowadays have access to great resources via the internet but the effort is all theirs.

I have some beautiful memories of when my kids surprised me on Mother’s Day. I remember six years ago when I had had my second knee replacement surgery and was not very mobile, as it was just a few weeks after my surgery my kids went and got me a pair of diamond earrings. They were very beautiful! But more so because they were a very special gift from all three of them. I treasure them very much.

This is the card I got today!

These are my memories. I’d love if you could share some of your best Mother’s Day moments.

  1. I’m so sorry your mother died so young and you didn’t really get to know her.

    As for your question, my mother didn’t like mother’s day so we did the obligatory crafty presents at elementary school and that’s about it. She also has a birthday in late April, so it seemed useless to gift her a present again for Mother’s Day.

    My most memorable Mother’s Day was when I started day activities at my current agency in 2017. There, the clients did make their own Mother’s Day gifts for their mothers again, so I crafted something for my mother-in-law.

    1. Thanks Astrid.
      Making presents is fun and great way to show how much you care. Today my grandson made a simple card for his mom, my daughter and she was so happy about it.

  2. Those are beautiful memories, Sade. Just lovely. I have many special memories of Mother’s day. I think some of my favorites were when the boys were little, and seeing those mothers closest to our family, enjoy them, and they them. Beautiful. Happy Mothers’ Day, my friend! ❤

  3. Wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day! It’s always so special to receive little crafty kind of gifts from our children. I’m sure I probably gave my own mom the same over the years.
    One I remember well. My daughter’s art class made cards for Mother’s Day one year, and she got in trouble for the one she made me. I absolutely loved it, though. It was just construction paper, but was black & brown, and had a guitar cut-out pasted on. Probably some words inside. The thing is, she knew exactly what I like – and she showed it on that card she made. The art teacher said it wasn’t pink & flowery so it wasn’t a good one. But it was the best for me. 🙂

  4. We celebrate Mothering Sunday in March here in the UK, so with Bro in NZ, my Mum used to get two lots of celebratory cards, and she deserved them. I have happy memories of taking Mum for lunch on Mother’s Day, or treating her to so many little things when she came up for a holiday, as every day was Mother’s Day for me then as I had her all to myself for at least a month. I miss her as she passed away in January 2018, but I believe she’s united with my Dad who passed away 25 years ago this coming Thursday.

  5. When my girls were growing up, Mother’s Day was always about my mother. In 2019 Ben brought home art projects for Daughter and for me, I thought that was very sweet.
    My daughters do little things for me throughout the year, so we don’t really make a big deal out of the “Day”. I bought a bunch of carnations for Daughter when I went on my walk this morning, since Ben didn’t make art at school this year. It’s her favorite flower, and I wanted her to have something.

    1. Aww, that’s so sweet Angie. I do that too if my grandson forgets or is being lazy. This year they had an assignment to make a photo essay of Mother’s Day. So he made a card, and took some pictures. And gave his mom the box of chocolates I got for her. Thanks 🤩

  6. I am sorry that you didn’t get to spend a longer time with your mom. I am glad at the same time because I can feel the love you’re receiving from your kids… it’s amazing! Happy mom’s day!

  7. I remember many years of helping Dad or Dad helping me make breakfast for my Mom but I have more fond memories of my daughter doing the same. This year since my daughter has been working lots of overtime it was a wonderful gift just to be able to see her that night. The worst was the first year without my Mom… I still bought her three roses – one for me, one for my sister and one for her grandchildren. Then I went to a park close by her house where I said a few words about loving and missing her and threw the roses in the running stream. (she was cremated so she doesn’t have a gravestone to lay the flowers on.)
