My mom will celebrate her 90th birthday on Saturday. She is truly an angel. Mother of 15 children and now 5 generations with 65 grandkids. She raised us by herself and even graduated college after she was divorced and a single mom. We are very blessed. I always got along with my Mom, except for my teenage years when I rebelled. My Dad was a strict Italian man, from the old school, who wouldn’t take any crap from me or my brothers. My Mom uses to hide things from him if we did something bad. My Mom taught us respect, as we would like to be respected, and to love our fellow men.. I had so much fun with her as I reached about 10yrs old. We did everything together! How I wish my Mommy were here today, but sadly she passed away of cancer, 3yrs ago. I still haven’t gotten over her death! I miss her so much. Love you Mommy. After being raised without a mom it took me forever to accept and appreciate the love of a mother through my Mother in Law. What an amazing strong an influential woman to look up to an admire. I am a lucky lady.

My mother was a very loving and caring woman. She taught me to always say “I love you” to those you love and give them flowers, hugs, kisses, etc. while they are still alive and with you while you can enjoy their reactions. She told me that she knew she was loved and for me never to doubt that she knew it. I miss her very much but I have no guilt because I knew I loved her with all of my heart. One day I will see her again. I try to make my momma proud of the daughter she raised in everything I do. She took her life 20 years ago and not a day goes by that we don’t think of her and miss her. I know she loved me and her family, God just needed another angel. If your momma is alive, call her, go see her, spend time with her cause you don’t realize how much you love her until she isn’t there. My Mom is 80 and she’s a hoot. She’s my best friend and even though we don’t live close, we talk a lot and for long periods of time! We never run out of things to say. I can tell her anything. She said I was always a good kid, just mouthy! I know I wasn’t a bundle of joy at times. I got nasty and mouthy as I’ve already said, but later on, I realized how tough she had it living with my alcoholic father and I always stuck up for her and my siblings. That wasn’t good at times, but I had no choice. It happens. I know other people had/have it worse than I did. I’m fortunate to have my Mom because many of my friends are orphans now, having lost both parents.

My mom was a great mom when we were growing up. But she was also very controlling and depended a lot on my dad, who was a saint for putting up with her. Once my dad got more feeble and her kids started having families and lives of their own, she started pitting us against each other. I was the youngest and last to leave home. She still tried to control me, but when I resisted, she told me that the family didn’t need me anymore. At the time, I thought the silent treatment was temporary. I had been through it before when I lived home. But 20 yrs later and 3 children later, still haven’t heard from her or the rest of my 4siblings. I discovered my dad had passed away when I found his obit in the newspaper. I was 8 months pregnant with my last child and had just turned 40 yrs old. The worst part was my siblings not caring enough to ever get in touch with me. I recently sent a letter to my brother who. I was close to growing up. He eventually wrote back, but I am still debating whether to call him or not. A lot of things have been missed, weddings, grandchildren, and my children growing up without their large extended family. And my mom, at 94, probably hasn’t changed. My brother also hasn’t spoken to another sister of ours for years also, apparently. my dad would be so devastated if he was still alive. Funny thing was, I was never rebellious growing up and still hold onto the other good values I learned from my parents. I have taught them to my family. But sometimes family love and concern is conditional.
