hug your mom day

march 11th will always be a sad day for me. my mother died from complications related to treatment of breast cancer 8 years ago on this day. it's really amazing that it's been 8 years in some ways it feels like just yesterday and others an eternity. i miss her so so much. so on this day i ask you if your mother is still alive please please please - give her a call and tell her you love her. i know that's what i'd do if i could. also in some small way you will be helping to keep my mother's memory alive. that's really all she wanted - to be remembered.

Celeste, so sorry about your mom. I will call my mom this afternoon and I will be thinking of you today. She must be so proud of you!

Celeste, I am sorry about your mom. I lost my dad 8 years ago September. Since my mom is still around I will take your advice and give her a call. Thinking of you and hoping you are taking care of yourself.

Praying for you and for your mom. I know the pain of losing a parent. Big hugs.

I talked to my mom today and told her how blessed my life has been because of her, and that I love her.

Celeste, I am sending hugs to you. Tomorrow will be the 2nd anniversary of my mom's passing. I miss her every day and wish with everything I had that I could give her one more big bear hug.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and giving so many an opportunity to appreciate one more hug for their moms.

This must be one of the toughest things to go through - losing someone so close to you!
My thoughts are with you and I've spoken to my mum and grandmother today!

such a beautiful day to remember our moms. I lost my mom to breast cancer (and other things) 4 years ago. My grief comes in waves and I found setting days to remember her really helps me move on .
I love taking the time to give her a hug and think about what I could tell her if she was here.
Thanks for the reminder.
God bless you.

Celeste, my mother too had breast cancer, she is currently a 9 year surviver.

If you feel comfortable with it, I would appreciate you assisting in promoting the video. thanks, here is the link to Youtube, it's call Hug your Mom
