First of all, I wanna say Happy Mothers Day to everyone out there in DDO Land. My mother is a strong courageous Woman and is a beautiful person inside and out. She has truly been a blessing in my life since day one. What about your mother or guardian, or role model in your life ladies and gents.
What does Mothers Day mean to you.

We don't celebrate it in our house simply because my mom forces us not to. We tried a few years ago and she got mad. She thinks we should just be kind everyday so we try to. My mom is cool. She asserts her parental role when necessary but can still be cool otherwise.

I wouldn't be the person I am (and I'm still young) without my parents, but especially my mom. She dropped out of Purdue Engineering school (one of the top engineering programs in the country) to have me, and proceeded to have 6 more kids, and homeschooled all of us to boot (not an easy task).

Being around her most of the day has helped make me the level headed and responsible person I'm told I am today. Her homeschooling me and my siblings was one of the greatest and selfless things she could have done, especially considering she gave up the possibility of a very well paying job for us. She's not really in to Mother's day (she's rather introverted and doesn't like all the attention, although appreciates the thought) but hopefully we can make it the special day she deserves! :D Mothers are awesome!

My mom got me interested psychology and explained evolution and its implication to me when I was just in 3rd grade. These topics where on her mind at the time because that is when she was working to get her degree in psychology.

She also helped me see how absurd the religious beliefs of the rest of our family were. But what I really was able to take away from these early pedogogic experiences was that adults, and thus authority, could be deeply flawed and usually were.

She was a good mom to us growing up. She was more of a friend than a parent, which was fine for us - our dad was enough "parent" for the both of them.

Unfortunately, she is a manic depressive with bouts of paranoia. She lives in another state, slowly killing herself with drugs, currently not talking to me or anyone else, and beleiving that the world is her enemy. She tried to be religious but it didn't make her happy. Her new hobby is right-wing hatred and paranoia.

My mother was also a manic-depressive, and it got to her about ten years ago - she drowned in the Atlantic one day sort of mysteriously, and it's never going to be known what the percentage of accident/intent was, as she was prone to both big mistakes and suicide attempts (the rip tide could have gotten her by surprise, perhaps). I wish I could have known her later in my life, when I was mature and able to act selflessly, as I definitely took her for granted for the entirety of my childish life up until that point. I feel like she only knew me at my worst. Lesson to take from this: appreciate what you have NOW and don't wait for later to tell people how much they mean to you. I never got that chance and I never will now that I've missed it. Go out this mother's day and don't hold back when you tell her what she means to you, as you are not guaranteed another mother's day with her next year.

My Mom is a very strong, faithful, beautiful, sacrificial, selfless, thoughtful, considerate, prayerful, loveable, firm, intelligent, God-fearing woman. I am very thankful to God for her life. She has done soo many things for me. Stayed in the hospital with me for 3 months, made sure to be extra careful putting IV to my heart, every ounce of things she has done for me starting with giving birth to me has been a blessing from God.. She is one part of the reason I am alive today.. As look at all of my younger siblings (17 biologically) and my Dad I just think about how much my mom does for all of us and no other woman can do the amount of things as she does on a daily basis for her family. And its all thanks to God! God has truly blessed me with this wonderful mother and I'm glad to admit this! :)

Mother's Day isn't just a one day ritual for me, it's an everyday practice I strive to do because she deserves it in my opinion.

Grace of God not cherished. Presence of God not prized. Person of God not loved. That is sin." ~John Piper

This brought tears to my eyes when I read this.. I'm so sorry about your mother.. :(
