    I do admire my Catholic mother.

    She had 17 children and was a great mother to all of her children. I want to thank my mother for all the love she has given to all of her children.

    My mom pretty much wears the pants in the

    family. She is such a strong woman, and a hard worker.

    My mom....gosh....what can I say about my mom.

    ..she is, by far, the smartest woman I know. Not university educated....not college educated but educated by life and blessed by common sense. She was one of the few moms, I knew of, during the 70's who stayed home with her children. At the height of women's lib, she endured...

    My mother has helped me through a lot.

    To be honest, I'm not sure if I would've been alive today if it wasn't for her. I've been through a lot, a lot of struggles and pain in life. My dad has been abusing me for as long as I can remember, and for all that time, my mother has been supporting me and helping me. She...

    My real mother who is in Heaven is my

    inspiration and my strength. She shows me so much love, even though she's passed. She comes around me all the time and she holds me, she lays in bed with me, she watches movies with me, she keeps me remembering God, she disciplines me when I have done something wrong and even...

    I Do

    During my mother’s childhood, money was tight. My grandfather was an alcoholic, and chronically unemployed. My mom doesn’t talk about him much, but from what I gather he was definitely verbally and possibly physically abusive. My mom got jobs babysitting at a very...

    I love my mother for everything she did

    for me. Although sometime it's difficult for her to show love but I know deep down in my heart she gave me the greatest love.

    My Mom My Rock!

    When I was small my mom was the one I could talk to the older I got she thought it was better for me to talk things over with my dad. I love my dad for his advice but it was from a point of view I struggled to understand. In my teens I would tell my mom about certain things but...

    To this day you are the strongest woman I know.

    I know I never could've endured all you have in your life with the strength and dignity you have. Although I know as mother you made some decisions raising us that you later decided you didn't agree with (an experience I'm sure I'll find out about myself someday when my kids are...

    I wish I could say the same.

    Mine makes me nauseous. She's poison and I have no doubt that there is a God because she is the devil. Pages like this make me so jealous because even though she carried me for 9 months, she gives less that a rats testicle whether I'm dead or alive. Id die if my daughter felt...

    why this mother made a hell big difference in my life. I was an only boy to three sisters as the last boy after three first sisters. I saw mom at first as if it was yesterday like a queen that is carrying me and hugging me after i was born. I remember that at this moment she put...

    What an amazing woman!
