When I was 19, I was having the time of my life, only thinking what to buy the next payday.

You are a great woman, a superb nurturer and most importantly, a superb MOM. I've lost track of how many times she has used the phrase "you were just babies" when recounting some anecdote.

In brief, I think my supervisor was saying, "All relationships, including those of mothers with children and of daughters and sons with mothers (1) can be beloved and attractive and (2) can be conflicted and hard".

Most Saturdays my brother Lowell and I were given a small allowance, and we would take the rattletrap bus into downtown Reno, stop at the Little Giant café, where we would split a waffle, then head to the Majestic Theatre, and enjoy the Saturday matinee. But mothers also know how to push all our buttons and drive us insane. Whatever qualities or characteristics you want you see in your child's life, be sure first of all that you show it in your own life. It's just here, buried deep in my heart. Life is wonderful because of you! For those Moms that hanged around during tough times "for the sake of the children" - I salute you. How you make ends meet, all the while fighting your way through your own struggles, is beyond me. I look up to her and admire her for her fortitude. I have experienced her unconditional love that sets appropriate boundaries around them.

At the conclusion of Circling My Mother, daughter Mary writes: "I am trying to speak of my love for my mother".

It was in 2007 when you made a decision to work overseas for our future.

"I think it's important that we help wherever there is a need", Churney said. Know that you are mom enough.

Mahika Sharma: Mother, I feel that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries. I interviewed some top CEO's this week, asking one question: How did your Mom influence you on your journey?

All this may not be the gift you have thought of giving.

In Malaysia world's oldest government leader sworn in
The stunning election outcome was expected to ruffle financial markets that were expecting a comfortable win for Najib and the BN. Mr Najib, 64, said earlier that he and his wife Rosmah Mansor would go on a holiday on Saturday and would return next week.

All the sacrifices, however, will be worth it because of all the joy and laughter and happiness they will bring you. May you continue to be your savage self forever mom! We are so lucky to have you.

There are mothers who have dropped everything they were doing to rush to their child's side. In 1907, two years after her mother's death, she embarked on a campaign to make it a holiday, and in 1914 it was nationally recognized. You're always there for me, Ma.

When I joke to my children that I went through the valley of the shadow of death to give them life, they normally joke back: "It was hard for us too".

You are compassionate, understanding, and kind. You've always supported every dream or goal of mine, regardless of how unattainable and ridiculous they may have been.

When they had been providing a ideal mother's day award, then I am confident that you would get it.

I am so grateful to have grown up with your example of unselfish love and care!

Right from the start, you were the one who nurtured me, prayed over me, anxious about me, guided me and supported me in every pursuit.

My mom had the day to herself - along with my dad and my siblings, who were in various stages of maturity, the eldest 12 years older than I and the youngest a toddler. These are the things my mom taught me. Both of you (Papa) did a great job to your children!
