I hate to see this listed as "unanswered" in the que....
Mark's sentiment should be felt and honored by all of us.
The post was "liked" but by two of us.

I certainly know what it means to lose my mother, as it happened this past year, and I know of another that thinks of her Mum every day.
Don't you?

I just thought this thread should not be labeled "unanswered"

So I said some stuff.

I am of the minority I'm sure but the only person I care to wish Happy Mother's Day to is my own mother. All of the other mothers should be celebrated by their own children. It's a personal thing and a special bond that I don't have with anyone else's mother and especially those that I don't even know and have never met. So I don't feel I should wish people Happy Mother's Day globally any more than I would wish a bunch of strangers Happy Birthday because many people have birthdays every day. I do hope everyone has a great day but just like the other 364 days of the year. :)

Thanks Randy! I didn't care that it went unresponded to if it got the message across.

Karen, everyone's entitled to their own opinion. What about the mothers who no longer have children? Are they no longer mothers? Is wishing a global "Merry Christmas" or "Happy New Year" wrong because I don't know everyone who may read those words, and why would I care what kind of Christmas, or new year, they may have?

Sorry. Off my soapbox and back into my corner ...

They are still mothers with children in Heaven. You don't stop being a child's mother when they die. My mother's in Heaven, she's still my mother and I'm still her daughter and we still have that special bond in our hearts.

What about women who never had children? We don't deserve a day? As Rodney Dangerfield would say, "I never got a dinner!" :D I wish mothers happiness no more or less than women who never had children, whether it was their choice or not, every day of the year.

To me Mother's Day is much more personal and on a whole different level than those other occasions.

Anyway, I should have kept my opinion to myself as I didn't intend to get into a debate over it. I just wanted to explain why I didn't reply when it was originally posted. :)

Moms are moms. No kids, not a mom. I got zero issue saying happy Mothers day to any moms, Merry Christmas to anyone, and happy Memorial Day to anyone regardless of service. It is just polite IMO. If someone takes issue with it (and they do, trust me) I dont care. Thats on them. My wishes are sincere and I wish everyone a good day. Youve earned it. :)
