How do you celebrate Mother's Day... without the mother?

Is it possible? To celebrate a Mother's Day with the kids, and their mother is no longer here?


I bet it is, although it would look weird, or outright ridiculous...

to celebrate a Mother's Day with the mother.

Absolutely! I hope that my kids feel it's something worth celebrating, when I'm gone. I hope they think of me and spend some part of the day remembering me.

I know that I celebrate - not only AS a mother, but as a daughter whose mother died in 2002. I think about her, and remember the good times.

Hi Holly!

Thanks for dropping by my blog, I appreciate your comment... and I really couldn't argue with it... lol

I guess it is worth celebrating after all.

Hi, Roy! I think so. :) Thank you for visiting my blog, today, too. I appreciate it.

I'm sorry for your loss, too.

My dad has remarried, and I am blessed to have a wonderful step-mom. (Seems a funny word, "step-mom" when you are middle-aged and didn't grow up with her, but there you go.) She sent me roses for Mother's Day.

Even without the mother, we still can celebrate.

Tough, yes. But we have to press on. In their honor, we simply have to. Otherwise, we'd be slacking off. Our mothers created near-perfect masterpieces - that's us. Through the sheer force of their nurturing spirit, love and faith in us.

It is to this we must give a toast to. To mothers who give us flesh and blood and this potentiality for greatness. And to mothers of our own children, too.

Take heart, Roy. We just have to hang tough. Let us make our mothers proud. ",)
