  2. My mom was the caregiver, always taking care of us and others and I seem to have adopted her gift.
    I hope you have a wonderful Mother's day.

  3. My mother was dedicated and loyal - especially to the family.

  4. My mother is in her 70's, She has 6 married children, twenty-three grandchildren. most married, and eleven great grandchildren. She still cooks for holidays and she thinks she has to make fried apple pies for us. She tries to make at least 50 each time when she's able. So what do I like about my mother? Her loving kindness, her (and Dad's ) moral upbringing. but mostly her love. Thank you for the giveaway, even though I really can't put into words everything I like (love) about my mother.

  5. My mom firmly believed that anything you put your mind to, you can do. I live my life based on this. If you think you accomplish something, you can. She was such an "encouraging" person. Miss her so...

  7. I just lost my mom in March so this will be my first Mother's Day without her. She was a wonderful cook and there are so many great memories I have that include some of her best dishes. My siblings and I have all tried to emulate her gift of cooking, but we can never do it as well. Mom we miss you so much.

  8. My mom just lost both of her sons to cancer within the last 6 months. Even though her heart is broken, she is carrying on with life. Her strength and faith in God inspire me.

  9. I would describe my mom as brave with a big heart. She travels the world with my father, working with local ministries and missionaries. She's lived in places far out of her comfort zone, eaten things I never would have dreamed she'd try and done it all with a smile on her face and love in her heart. The thing I'm most proud of is that she truly loves the people she meets and works with. They are what she talks about when she comes home.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love the fact that my mom is a people person. She cares about others and has taught me to do the same. She will go out of her way to help and once she has helped you you are a part of our family. We have many people in our lives that are part of our family! :-) Thanks Melissa- It has been really fun to spend time thinking about my mom this week. K-

  11. There was absolutely nothing my mom wouldn't do for me. We were close when I was growing up, but we became extremely close once I was married and became a mom myself. It was then that we became true FRIENDS. When she died 20 years ago, we lived in different states, but we talked on the phone almost every day. Because the memories of her are painful, I usually avoid thinking of her too much, but I want to thank you for asking us to share. The memories make me sad, but I choose to see that as a good thing. I wouldn't be sad if I didn't love and miss her so much!

    ReplyDelete
  12. My mom has been giving all her life. She gives her love, time and when possible material things. I strive to be like her.

    ReplyDelete
  13. My mother has a great sense of calm. I can't remember a time when events of the day flustered her. I think part of it is her faith in God.

    ReplyDelete
  14. My Mum was a great cook (although she never thought so) and she had a great sense of humour which would show up when you least expected it. I never mind being told, 'You're just like your mother', it just makes me proud to be like her, I just wish she was still here with me so my two boys could have known her.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love that my mom was so unselfish and put us before herself. She made a lot of hard decisions and we all turned out pretty good!

    ReplyDelete
  16. My mother is such a good sport! She takes so much from all of us and always keeps her sense of humor.

  17. My mom cares so much about everyone. She wants to fix everyone's problems. She has enough of her own to deal with but she always wants to put herself out there for other people as well.

    ReplyDelete
  18. She was neighbourly and kind to others. Happy mother's day week. x

    ReplyDelete
  19. I appreciate my mom's unconditional love - no matter what my brothers and I put her through, she was (and still is) always there for us.

  22. My mom has an awesome sense of humor, she always makes me laugh! Thank you for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  23. My mom never got angry or upset and always found the humor in every situation. She taught us to think in terms of the future. If it wasn't going to matter a year from now it isn't worth worrying about or getting upset about. It's amazing how many things that start to upset you just aren't that important when thought about in those terms.

    ReplyDelete
  24. My mother had empathy. She worked with disabled children and was so caring and giving and was so kind and wonderful - to EVERYONE she met :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for the chance! My mom and I live 3000 miles apart but she is really great at staying in touch, always sending me pictures of daily life she and my dad are experiencing. Just yesterday I got to see photos of all the birds frequenting their feeders. I may only see her once a year, but she makes a huge effort to keep me in the loop so that I don't feel so far away.

    ReplyDelete
  26. My mom shares her love with her family as well as friends and spouses. She even has friends that drops by to visit her and see how she is doing. If you need someone just to talk to, she is the one and only. She will listen and comfort you in the end. That is a lot of love and support from one Mother. Thank you and your sponsors for all of the generous goodies. Someone is going to be enjoying this awesome giveaway. Could it be me? Just want to wish you a happy Mother's Day.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My mom is creative. She always finds a way to solve a problem, no matter how impossible it seems at first :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  36. My mom didntbhold a punch. While sometimes it would hurt my feelings, she was rarely far from the truth.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Determination. She never let anything stop her from doing what she set her mind on doing. Overcoming the challenges of polio as a child formed her character. She was an optimistic, can-do kind of women her whole life.

    ReplyDelete
  38. My mother is one of the most generous people I know. She'll drop whatever she's doing and help us out, it doesn't matter what she's doing, or what time it is. My mother (on her birthday) went with me for my 2nd mammogram, my results were positive for cancer. My mother put everything on hold in her life to accompany me to every doctors appt., surgery and chemo treatment, all while taking care of her and my father's lives. She also helped with my 6 yr. old and many things at my house. I hope I'm as wonderful a parent, friend and person as she is, I try. It's been 9 yrs and as much as I try,I still don't think I come close to being the loving generous women she is, that I aspire to be. I've been taught by the best, I'm very lucky, so is my son. Happy Mother's Day!

  41. I have to say my mom is tough ... she had a hard life, she had me when she was older (which was not all that common back then), she was a single mom, she worked three jobs... and she made it all work. Plus she put up with me when I was a teenager. I am not sure I could handle half the things she did and it amazes me!

    ReplyDelete
  42. My mom is really adaptable and can make the best out of any situation. We've moved a lot, around 40+ times for her, but she always goes with the flow and finds a reason to love her new home.

    ReplyDelete
  43. My mom is wonder woman. When I was only 10, my dad went to Iraq. My mom took care of the five of us (my twin brothers weren't even 1 yet when my dad left) all by herself. She even had an article written about her in the paper. I love my strong military-wife mama!

    ReplyDelete
  44. My mother was always so supportive of her three very different daughters and so proud of all of our accomplishments.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  46. Her gumption. My mom isn't afraid to stand up for what's right or her kids. When her momma bear comes out you better watch out. She is an amazing person and I hope that I can be like her when I grow up ;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. My mom did her best in a rough situation when my dad left. She worked hard and did without so we would be able to have our needs met. We never had a lot but we never went without. She did it all with love.

    ReplyDelete
  51. My mom is the hospitality master; she is in her element preparing for large family gatherings, and she even has offered up her guest room for months at a time to those in need. The only drawback is the fact that I now cook double the food needed for gatherings because I have to follow my mom's rule that no one goes away hungry :-)

    ReplyDelete
  52. My favorite thing about my mother is that she and I think so much alike, our thoughts just seem to "click". She is no-nonsense and down-to-earth, yet very kind and caring. And she loves her 3 girls more than anything in the world, and we always know that.

    ReplyDelete
  53. My mom loved crafts, and she tried every new one that came along. If she liked she made something for everyone she knew. If she didn't it was a lesson learned and she moved on to the next thing. I get my willingness to try new things from her.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Although my mother doesn't do craft of any kind, she is always interested in what I am making. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  58. mom was a good cook - she was born and raised on a wheat ranch and she and her sister did most of the cooking for the family and workers. Sadly, she was a loaner in the kitchen and did not share her secrets while I was a child - only after I was grown with a family of my own did she give me tips - it took me years to make gravy like she did.

    ReplyDelete
  59. My mom is generous...with her time, her money, and her talents.

    ReplyDelete

  72. As my children were growing up, we always had Sunday dinner at my mom's. It amazed me how she could take such simple food and make it so tasty. It has only been in the last little while that I realized that she put sugar into a lot of the dishes she made. I guess it took the tartness out of various flavours.

    ReplyDelete
  73. My Mom was the most optimistic and it's always a good day person. My Mom passed on the saying to me that "never had a bad day some were just not as good as others, but all lovingly given to me by God and for that I am thankful." she passed at age 99 still saying that every morning and praising God for another day.

    ReplyDelete
  74. My mother taught all her daughters to be strong and independent--able to take care of themselves without a man,

    ReplyDelete
  83. My Mom would give anyone the shirt off her back and ask if they needed more....even if she had no more to give. And her laugh was infectious. Oh if I could hear that laugh just one more time! Thanks for the giveaways but more than that allowing us some great memories of our Moms.

    ReplyDelete
  84. She's been thru a lot in life..... so I'd say just BEING my mom!! my favorite mom (a joke we always say to each other, as I'm her FAVORITE daughter- I'm an only child) so she's my favorite mom too.

    ReplyDelete
  85. She's always there when I need to talk. I can call to ask her one silly little question, and then hang up after the 60 second conversation. No matter how often I do it, she never sounds exasperated. Also, that 60 second conversation often turns into an hour+ conversation. <3 my mom.

    ReplyDelete
  86. My mom is creative. She is also good with little kids and has good advice for dealing with all my friend's kids, nieces and nephews, etc.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  88. My mom always told me to always Vote for myself, then I would have at least one Vote! She taught me to play the "Glad Game". Yes I'm kinda like Pollyanna, just trying to play the Game. I do the things I do for my Children and Grandchildren because of her.

    ReplyDelete
  89. My mom was a very caring person. She used to work at a bank branch that was part of a senior care facility and she got to know many of the residents. So many of them were lonely. Even if they had relatives, those relatives seldom visited. My mom befriended them all and she became like a "substitute daughter" to many of them.

    ReplyDelete
  90. When I think of my mom, I remember her smile which makes me smile and I remember her in happy times.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I love that I can talk to my mum about everything and rely on her whatever happens - that's what families are for, isn't it?!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  93. I love how 'family' meant everything to my mom. She was there to help anyone who needed assistance, whether they requested it or not. She never forgot anyone's birthday

    ReplyDelete
  94. If I was to pick one characteristic about my mum I would say her generousity. She is always there for everyone and she gives so much of her time to so many. Truly a wonderful and much loved person.

    ReplyDelete
  95. My mom has been very hard working. After she finished her chores she newer sat down without some knitting project in her hands. She made so many sweaters and socks to her children and grandkids, I can't count them.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Wow 6 days of giveaways - how generous. My mom is the best example to me of service to her family and to others - which she inherited from my grandmother.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I really love how my mom kept going even after she "retired". Still kept a job, still worked at church, still volunteered at the election board. I thought that she was amazing! At 85, she is still a volunteer in our church office. Maybe not quite as much, but still going! That is a great example.

    ReplyDelete
  98. My mom taught me to hand quilt. Thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  99. My Mom really loved flowers! She was eager to help me start my own flower beds when I got married.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Mom has been gone for almost 36 years now. She treated us like little adults from an early age which made us independent from an early age. She was a talented seamstress who taught me how to sew. I made all of my own clothes as a teenager, but now I am a quilter. She would have loved that. Happy Mothers Day!

    ReplyDelete
  101. My mom was my sole emotional support after my divorce left me as a single mom with 2 small babies. It's been 14 years since she left this earth, and I miss her every day.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I've always admired my mom's bravery to put herself out in the world. She was a small town farm girl who has traveled the world, taken leadership positions, and stood up for what she believes in. If ever I'm feeling daunted, I think about her risk taking and try!

    ReplyDelete
  103. My mom is the most amazing women ever! She is kind, compassionate, loving and always thinking of others. She loves her family and the Lord! If everyone in the world had such a wonderful mom, this world would be a much better place. I love her so much!

    ReplyDelete
  104. My mom stayed up all night with me when I was trying to finish my quilt for my college dorm bed - of course we were doing this the night before I was leaving!

    ReplyDelete
  105. My mom was a very humble person, always quick to recognize and celebrate someone else's strengths and accomplishments, but I never once heard her boast or put herself above anyone else.

    ReplyDelete
  106. My mom is very giving. She will go without for others to have. And if you have no family you will become part of ours. She will pick up a stranded motorist or hitchhiker even though she knows it is dangerous. She always tells us to try and see the good in everyone

    ReplyDelete
  107. My mother is always so positive. I don't think I have ever heard her say anything negative about her situation, ever. And she never says an unkind word about anyone. Gossiping and being unkind about anyone or any situation has no place in her soul. She is a wonderful example to me.

    ReplyDelete
  108. My mother is always so positive. I don't think I have ever heard her say anything negative about her situation, ever. And she never says an unkind word about anyone. Gossiping and being unkind about anyone or any situation has no place in her soul. She is a wonderful example to me.

    ReplyDelete
  109. My mother was always my biggest cheerleader and encourager. She made me feel there was nothing I couldn't do. But like you she was the BEST listener I know. She was always "all ears" whenever I had something that needed to be chewed over or discussed. Amazed me how she always remember every little detail too letting me know she was REALLY listening. Cherish your mom, she's probably one of the best friends you'll ever have. I miss mine more then I could ever express. Thanks for doing this. Happy mother's day!

    ReplyDelete
  110. I admired my Mother's strength. Her strength of character and honesty. Her strength in fighting all the various illnesses she endured. Her attitude was always positive. Miss you Mom.

    ReplyDelete
  111. My mother was an amazing multi-tasker. She could often be found doing 3, 4, or 5 things at once - and getting them all done! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  112. My mother is a very independent woman, 75years old but still going to Thialand once a year to visit my brother while she hardly speaks English let alone speaks Thai :-) And she refuses to wear 'age appropriate' colors for her wardrobe, so if you see a woman in very bright clothes; that's her!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Her determination.he US.. she is German.. she didn't know the language but was determined to learn it. She learned how to drive in her 30's, became a citizen and volunteered for teh Red Cross for years. She was determined to fit in!

    ReplyDelete
  114. My mother has always been fiercely protective, loyal and caring of her family. I am grateful for her loving support all of my life and thank God for her.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Listening is definitely what I have needed my mum for. I have kids with disabilities, and the struggles of rearing them, combined with graduate studies have driven me to the telephone many times. She calms me down, applies sage advice, patches wounds, applies love and off I go again.

    ReplyDelete
  116. My mother moved in with me a year ago. She struggles with dementia. She also has health issues beyond that. Even through all these changes she never complains and is almost always pleasant. I hate seeing her lose her freedom and the ability to do for her self, but I am continually reminded of her great strength.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I feel like I need to make something up because I just don't have a mom like that but instead I'll say - she did talk to me on the phone an hour before my wedding 7 years ago and say "You dont have to do this if you dont want to!" I don't even know what thats about. I'm very happy for those of you who have awesome mothers though, and I have an awesome ex MIL and an awesome MIL and they make my life pretty great!

    ReplyDelete
  118. My mum is very supportive, 10 years ago she gave up work to become my full time carer, I need more help now than ever, but I've never heard her complain. She even presses all my seams for me so I can sew more when I fell up to it!

    ReplyDelete
  120. My trais most like my mother's are patience and being able to see the problem(s) from everyone's point of view. Both really help when raising children and grandchildren.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Sadly my mom died almost 25 years ago at the young age of 60. There were 10 of us kids and my youngest sister was still in high school. She was always there for all of us and we miss her and my dad so much. As much as she took care of all of us, she was always there for others who needed help - mostly older neighbors who didn't have families and couldn't drive. She would shop for them and take them to doctor appointments - even when we didn't think they were very grateful to her! She made us pitch in and help too!

    ReplyDelete
  122. Mother gave, and gave, and then gave some more. She was always the one who remembered birthdays, anniversary's, any special occasion with food or a craft of some type. Or she was the one whose shoulder was used to cry on, talk to, etc. She was always there for everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  123. My mom was a very giving mother. She also loved to have our friends come over and play.

    ReplyDelete
  124. There were five of us kids, and we were financially pretty poor. My mom was, (and still is! ) a very young mom, but she always stood up for us kids - I always thought of her as a mama wolf protecting her pups :)

    ReplyDelete
  125. My Mom is no longer with us, but her devotion to family and friends is her legacy. She would bend over backwards for her family and her friends. She is missed daily.

  134. My mum is really good at talking to people. She is never lost for words and at a party she walks around introducing people and telling them what they have in common. On the train she strikes up conversations with people, ending ip with new friends and plans to catch up. She is amazing!

  137. My mom is a fighter. She had a hard life and had to quit school in the 8th grade to help support her brothers and sisters. She has always valued education and made sure that her children got a good one. She supported all five of us without any help from our father after he left us. She has shown me that being independent and tough is a virtue to have.

  138. My favorite characteristic about my mother is that she is full of love and forgiveness for everyone. Most of my friends call her Mom because she is like a mom to them. She tells them she loves them and gives them hugs. She has been that way forever! She is an extremely forgiving woman...even to those who have done me or her wrong. She believes in turning the other cheek and giving people another chance. She is a good Christian woman who strives to be the person she feels God wants her to be. She is not only my mom, but she is one of my best friends as well.

  139. Most of my life I was introduced as Esther's daughter. And the other person's face would light up and tell me how wonderful my mother was. My mother never met a stranger. She'd chat while in line at the market. We used to tease her asking if she had invited to Thanksgiving Dinner!

  140. For some reason my comment published before I was done. Even after my mother died friends of hers would introduce me as Esther's daughter. Those great big smiles would happen and I would swallow a lot so tears wouldn't come. They are right now.

  170. Her strength. Dad died when I was 9. She was left with 3 kids to care for, a funeral to pay for and no insurance. That much I remember, because she took on a second job to make ends and to keep us kids in familiar, consistent surroundings. Over the years, as I grew and matured, I saw more of that strength in almost everything she did. She died when I was just 20 and a new mom myself. We three kids were set adrift without her.
    I got my first longarm in December, a Gammill Classic Plus, and I named her Louise, after my mom because this machine has strength and power to spare, like my mother did.

  172. My Mom was the best cook in the area, distant relatives still talk about how good my Mom could cook. Of course I didn't appreciate it til I didn't have it. Hindsight.

  174. I thought my mom was the most loving and giving person. What I didn't know until her death is that her fellow nurses thought she was the most intelligent person they had the pleasure of working with. That statement was made to me at her funeral and I have never forgotten it. My mother started a family early and years later got her GED to go to nursing school. She studied so hard and it paid off. She graduated with honors. My mom was loved by everyone.

  183. My Mom had courage & daring. Not in a skydiving kind of way, but in a loving commitment way. My Dad was career Army; she was a farmer's daughter who had never traveled anywhere. He was transferred to Japan, but she was pregnant with me & stayed home. But 6 months later she got on a train by herself with her 2 daughters (6 months & 1-1/2 years old), traveled across the country, got on an ocean liner to sail off to join my Dad. Her youngest sister still marvels at her courage. Thanks.

  186. She was brilliant with a great sense of humor. I remember her doodling in Greek and calculus. But what I liked best is that she used to read to me, all the time. I still love the Oz books because of it.

  192. My mother taught me to be calm and non judgmental. She is so honest and fair and that has really shaped me for whom I am today. I thank her for always teaching us to 'live and let live', even back in the 50's when it was acceptable to have a 'class' system. Love you mom!
