    I love my Mum because despite everything I put her through as a teenager, she supported me and loves me for who i am.

    I love my mum because she sacrificed a lot, including her career when I was young. Then she became my role model by becoming a successful creative business woman more than twenty years ago. Her optimism and hard work is something I look up to. She is always there for me whenever i need her. She is a fabulous and loving grandmother as well.

    Thanks

    I love my mum because she is a star, I had a traumatic birth 2 years ago and was in hospital for over 10 months following it. My mum looked after my husband and rallied the family around to provide care for my son to free up my husband and give him some respite and time to visit me in intensive care. She has always been there for me and still is now she still looks after my son for one day and night a week which gives me time to rest and relax from the busy days I have with my son!!

    I love my mum because she gave me two amazing sisters, they are the best present I have ever had. Mum is so full of love, even now at 65 yrs of age she still runs round looking after us all, she would give us her last penny if we asked. She is always full of wise words and advice. Mum always says the right thing. She is my best friend and I love her infinity.

    I love my Mum because she is now a really strong woman I really admire. She has gone through many trials and tribulations like many people in life and has come through them with flying colours. I am extremely proud of her and love her because even when others were judging my lifestyle choices she has always unconditionally loved and supported me throughout. My Mum is truly a star in my eyes.

    I love my mum she has held our family together, always been there for me,and the person who has been there to pick up the pieces when my life has gone seriously wrong.
    She loves me unconditionally and there is nothing I can ask that is too much.

    She has helped me be more positivite & instead of focusing on what I can’t do to try out new things that I can do. I had a point in my life that I felt worthless & couldn’t see a way out of my disabilities & she taught me to have more respect for my life & myself.

    My mum is 90 year old on the 19th of March and it is my birthday on the 17th.
    So it is a very busy weekend for our family.
    My mum has always been there for me and my familt throughout her life and although she is getting on a bit, is still active and bakes us treats like pancakes and apple tarts.Long may she continue to be as independent as dependable as she is.

    My Mum met my dad when she was 17 and he was 18, they came from different religious and cultural back grounds.. She hadapted to my Dad’sway of life and devoted her time to him and us and the extended family. She is a respected member of the wider community too. When my Dad got the travel bug way back in the late 60s they moved across Asia in the Magic bus with us until they ran out of money and Dad had to stop and get a job. Mum got very very sick once but still continues to trek around the world taking care of my dad – she has learnt languages and how to haggle in markets- put up with being stared at for her fair colouring all for her family. We loved growing up in all the places we went to … changing primary schol 14 times!! but Mum, it must have been hard moving so frequently communicating with her family through snail mail and not knowing a soul.

    I love my mum because she has always supported me through all my good times and bad times. She hasn’t had an easy time with me as I have been ill for most of my life (and still am) but she has never turned her back on me and not supported me. I have four lovely children and she helps me with them all the time. I couldn’t have asked for a better mum!

    I love my mum because she is a lovely person and has always been there for my sisters and I while we were growing up. She’s incredibly understanding and patient, and has been a wonderful help since I’ve had my baby daughter, travelling up to babysit for me every few weeks from Portsmouth to London.

    Unfortunately I lost my mam 5 years ago really suddenly to cancer. She was told on a Sunday and she died the following Friday. She was such an inspiration to everyone around her. My daughter reminds me so much of my mam her ways, mannerism etc. I would love to give these to my daughter to say thank you for everything she does and to show how special she is to me.

    My mother is a rock, she used to make all our clothes, make all our meals and work. She never flinched during any of her children’s mistakes and mishaps, she was always there, always making sure the family was a family. Now at 81, slightly deaf, partially sighted and recently widowed she is still showing us how a war child gets on with life no matter what the circumstances. I can’t imagine a better role model and I can’t imagine her not being there but I hope the support I now give her lets her know how much I love her and how much she has taught me that our lives are only as good as those of the friends and family around us. We have to look after and cherish them all.

    I love my mum because she is always there for everyone, let alone my brother, sister and I.
    She has been there for all of us in turn, or it seems that way.
    A few years ago now, I was in a bad relationship and with two very small children. It was my mom who gave me the courage to leave and live on my own with my two little ones. For which I will always be eternally grateful.
    She is a very special lady, and at 82 it is just amazing how much strength she possesses.

    my mum has had such a rough year. she lost her sister a few months ago, and though she’s still grieving she puts on a brave face and a smile for everyone around her. she takes on so much responsibility, for her family, her friends, and even her local community. a real do gooder! my dad is probably not available to her as much as he should be. so it’s up to us kids to show her that she really is special. i love her to bits and really want to do my best to make sure she knows she is valued, not just as a great mother but as a fantastic human being. love you mum.

    I sadly lost my Mum a year ago and the reason she was special is that she was actually my step mum as my mother died when I was only a baby and she always kept my natural mother’s memory alive for me so that I felt as though I remembered her.

    The best thing about my Mum is her bravery and tenacity. She has been through so much in her life, including being left a single mother of three kids when my Dad died. She never complains, and is always there for anyone. She’s never got any money because she will invariably give her last pound to someone who needs it. My dream is to be in a financial position to look after her for a change. I’m not ashamed to say that she is my heroine and the person I look up to the most in this world. No matter that I am an adult and a mother myself, I am proud to say that:

    I LOVE MY MUM!!!

    PS – She’s not perfect, I know that, like the fact that every piece of advice she has ever given me, (especially in regards to parenting), has been 100% spot on is pretty annoying!

    Why do I love my Mother, well she’s been there for me all my life, when I’ve had a problem, its Mother I turn to.
    She’s fantastic, 80 years young, five children, 26 grand children & almost 15 great grandchildren!
    she still lives in her own house, the one that I grew up in along with my four brothers, does over 90% of the housework herself, we had to insist she used a window cleaner for cleaning the upstairs outside window, but she stands there watching him making sure he does it to her standard! We also got a local lady to come in a vacuum the stairs, as she almost fell down from the top last year.
    Her cooking is outstanding – she loves her TV chefs James Martin being her favourite, she loves experimenting with recipes and adapting them.

    Her skin is fabulous, only a couple or so weeks ago, she was going into town to get some shopping & the bus driver made her show her pass as he didn’t believe her – that more than made her day! She’s used Dove for over 30 years, a friend bought it her after my father died in 1978 & she has used it daily since, no crows feet & skin thats had more comments than Jane Fonda’s!

    She’s just always there when anyone needs her. Being 80 I get scared of how time is running out, although she’s planning a party for her 85th!

    I love my mum because despite having a terribly tough couple of years, having undergone a major operation followed by cheamotherapy, she never lets life knock her down and always puts others before herself. She’s been there for us as much as we’ve been there for her throughout tough times. I’d be lost without her! These flowers would mean a lot to her as she is a really keen gardener but hasn’t been able to do as much as she usually would while she has been ill.

    I love my Mum because she taught me lots of life skills including how to iron and paint!
    She’s also fab for shopping with as she has the patience of a saint,
    but above all else she’s my Mum and will do anything for me,
    I don’t say I love her very often but with this gift I’d make her smile with glee!

    My mum passed away nearly 5 years ago so for a moment could I put myself into my beautiful granddaughters shoes and mind for just a moment. Bless her she is only 16 months old (crikey is she really that old already just working it out there doesn’t seem possible) On her behalf I would say mummy you are the centre of my universe (along wtih daddy too) and I really DID say I love you this week you didn’t imagine it.

    My DIL had some bad news this week and without going into it in public I think some lovely flowers from her little girl would perhaps touch the right spot!

    my mum gives unconditional love and caring for her husband, us children and her grandchildren. She is always on the go and never has a minute to herself and doesn’t realise just how special she is as not only a mother but also a best friend.

    I loved my Mum because she taught me what was important in life and to cherish family above all. She had a very hard time in the War and yet she kept her family together and worked tirelessly to feed us and educate us. She definitely personified the words “Love conquers all”.

    I love my Mum because she isn’t perfect as there is no such thing. I grew up to respect others and work hard and during all this my Mum was selfless and its only now that I am a mother that i truely understand. she was present during what cna only be described as a horrific birth and was rock following after whilst my little man (now 6 months) was ill. She deserves some pampering as do all mums 🙂

    I love my mum for many reasons
    many more than I can name
    like me being a bratty teenager
    and she loved me just the same

    For holding my hand through labour
    and the fort when I was sick
    whether it be a stomach bug
    or the effect of too much drink

    For picking random clothes up
    each time shes at the shop
    because her darling grand children
    would look ‘so cute’ in those trousers or top

    For being generous with her money
    When we were struggling with none
    For giving every single spare minute
    to come round and get things done

    So why do I love my mother
    I wish you could be told
    But theres just to many things to list
    so i’ll just say, she has a heart of gold

    I love my mum because she always puts herself before anyone else – her family comes first. I know she would love these flowers as yellow was my grandmother’s fave colour and tulips are my mum’s fave flowers.

    I’d love to win this prize as recently my mum has held our family together. I’m at uni, realtively close to home and she tirelessly picks me up every weekend, though a lot more recently since my grandad, her dad passed away.
    A little positive would be a massive boost as she really does deserve it.

    My mum is actually my mother in law. She has supported me through some terrible times and loves me no matter what. She loves me for who I am, which at times isn’t the nicest or the sanest of people. As a in law she has the right not to like me, but she stepped in and took the place of my own family when they disowned me. Every time we speak she tells me she loves me, and not only is she an excellant friend, we are confidants for each other. x

    i love my mum because….being a mum has made me realise just how difficult the job is!
    Always there for support & advice, through the good times & the not so good. Allowing the freedom to make decisions yet gently steering your children away from near disaster! Navigating the choppy waters of teenageville in the hope of producing a strong, fair & independant person in their own right . I couldn’t ask for a better role model.
    Thats why mums are so important. 🙂

    It’s only since I became a mum that I can truly appreciate how difficult it can be at times and all the sacrifices my mum must have made as we were growing up to give us the best start in life. We didn’t want for anything and grew up with a mum who was so loving – even now, a cuddle from my mum is guaranteed to cheer me up. She’s a star!

    My mum was there when my daughter Sam was stillborn, she was so supportive and she takes care of her graveside for me as i now live 275miles from home. there are times when ive phone her up in the middle of the night because i cant cope and she will sit on the phone for hours until i have calmed down. she is amazing, she puts her own grief aside to help me with mine. she is amazing.

  360. Angie Hoggett
    March 13, 2012 / 1:19 pm

    she’s my best friend and mum rolled into one, second to none and my number one, always there when I need her, she always understands, putting others before herself and catering to every demand, I think she really deserves this treat, a mother’s day to relax and put up her tired feet, it would be so special as we don’t tell her enough but we love her so very, very much!!

  361. March 13, 2012 / 1:47 pm

    I love my mum, because without her, where would I be? Hitting middle age myself, my mum still supports and helps me, and my children, and my sister and her family too. Without my mum, life would not be so good!

    I love my mum. Sometimes we yell at each other … but I love my mum all the same. I’ve been having some financial difficulties lately and had nothing left for the shopping this week, but when mum realised how short I was she cleared out her cupboards for me so I can manage for the next week, even though she’s hard up too. That’s how generous and kind my mum is.

  367. Lianne Head
    March 13, 2012 / 2:51 pm

    I love my mum because she is always there for me and always supports my decisions whatever they may be, but will give words of warning from her experiences if she needs to (which I have frequently ignored to my downfall!). She is the best mum I could ever wish for :o)

  373. Cheryl Lloyd
    March 13, 2012 / 3:27 pm

    I love my mum because she has always been there for me, no matter what. I know that whenever i need help or just someone to talk to she is there and will give me the advice that i need to hear not just what i might want to hear. She had a knee replacement last year and is still unable to get out and about properly and its upsetting to see such a bright vivacious woman having difficulties with the day to day things that most people take for granted. I would do anything for my Mum but i cant make that better, i can only try to make her days brighter and hope that helps. Shes the best Mum that i could ever ask for and i would be lost without her. I’m proud that shes my Mum.

  374. Sarah Pilbeam

    I love my mum as she has been mum and dad to me and my sister since my dad died suddenly 11 years ago. Also she is a great Nanny to my daughter and my stepdaughter. Last year I got married and she skrimped and saved just so I could have the perfect day that I had always wanted. I love her more than anything and I would be totally, totally lost without her!!!

I would love for her to receive these lovely flowers as a very big thankyou.xx

    March 13, 2012 / 5:08 pm

    I loved, and still love, my Mum so much as she was everything to me. I lost her nearly 6 years ago due to illness, and miss her every single day. She was my best friend as well as my mum, and we were so close. The only reason i’m able to deal with life and all that it throws at me is because she brought me up with so much love and taught me how to cope with things. She was loved by so many people, and i feel very lucky she was my mum. As i grew up, she made sure me nor my brother went without, even when there was no money. She even went without meals for herself to feed us and didnt buy herself essential underwear to replace the ones that were unwearable. She put us first every time and i have so much love for her even though she is not longer here, and respect, as she was such a great mum. Whatever decisions i made with my life, she supported me always and encouraged us to be the best we could in anything we did, and even if we failed at something, she still made us feel good about it rather that getting fed up. Her motto, well one of many, was to have a laugh a day, and i keep to that now as it helps more than i ever thought it would. I miss her ways, her voice, the hugs, the laughter, just everything, I feel shes still watching out for me now. I could never put properly into words why i love her as theres just so much to love.

    I love my Mum because she’s always been there for me whether it be emotionally, physically or financially. I’m currently very sick with two kinds of cancer and without my Mum I wouldn’t be able to manage. She has always taught me to be compassionate and to help others in any way possible. She has always told me that things will work out no matter how desperate things have seemed. She looks like a model and has always made the best of her appearance and that has rubbed off on me. I love dressing up and making myself look good! I have always taken her advice which has been to my benefit. She is a kind, honest, intelligent, hardworking, beautiful woman. She is a true inspiration to me.

  385. Val Pownall
    March 13, 2012 / 7:08 pm

    She was always there for everybody else, never complained, and in all her life I never heard her say a bad word about anybody. She used to say “If you’ve nothing good to say about somebody, keep your mouth shut!”

    I am great at making chips,
    Growing spuds and changing zips.
    I can make a fudge ganache,
    Or knit a sweater in a flash.
    I can Salsa like a good ‘un,
    You should taste my Yorkshire puddin’.
    I know how to change a fuse,
    I always mind my Ps and Qs.
    People say that I’m astute,
    (They also say my bottom’s cute!)
    But when folk say that I am great,
    I shake my head and put them straight…
    All the things that make me proud,
    Are down to mum – she showed me how!
    (And as regards my perfect bum…
    It’s good genetics – thank you mum!)

    every mums special, but mines the bestest.
    my mum has been in hospital since November after having big heart surgery and has been quite poorly, so i think she deserves a lovely treat to show her my appreciation and love for her 🙂
