Tell A Story About Mom

This week on Hello Grief’s Facebook and Twitter pages we asked for people to submit special memories of their mothers. Here’s a look at some of the responses.

From Facebook
Gina: My Mother was Fierce.We all miss your unconditional love and wisdom. Continue resting in peace.

Lisa: My mother taught me two things in her short lifetime … She taught me how to laugh and how to love!

Kelly: My mom died when I was 8 years old. She was really sick the last year of her life so my memories aren’t very positive. But I learned a lot about her recently. Here’s a good story: My mom and dad went to a hotel one time before I was born. The room had a whirl pool in it. My mom in her excitement dumped in the bottle of bubbles and started the jets. An eight foot wall of bubbles was formed as my father and mother laughed, screamed and ran with the ice bucket to dump the bubbles in the bathroom. Only a capfill was supposed to be used. … Everyone has told me she had the biggest heart and saw the good in everyone.

Dee: My mom died when I was 9, the day before Mother’s Day… I remember her frosted pink lipstick and her Heaven Sent perfume. She was and still is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met. She made me the mother I became.

Angela: My mom taught me that no matter how tough things may get if you face them with a smile and laughter you could overcome the most challenging obstacles. Every time I’m faced with a difficult challenge in life I remember to find the little things that bring out the humor and help me be able to laugh about it, then I’m able to face my fears. I’m so proud to have had an amazing mom like her.

    Mam encouraged me in everything I did, she was the driving force behind me that made me believe I could reach the stars if I wanted. She always said “If it’s meant for you, it’ll not pass you” and “when life hurts you get up, brush yourself off and start again”. She was my best friend, my soulmate and the love of my life. She made me into the woman I am and I count the days until I can see her face again. x
