How long has it been since you thought of all your mother did for you throughout your life and thanked her, or just plain told her you loved her?

About 4 years ago, approximately a week before she killed herself.

Who knows, a few weeks. I know I told my granny that I loved her today.

Everyday! My Pops, too! And my wife! And my little jellyfish in my wife’s tummy! My Grand grands! Pretty much everyone knows I love them, on a daily basis!

@Kay I hate to hear that!

Over 6 years ago. My childhood was terrible. Saying goodbye was the best thing I’ve done.

Not in a very long time…mostly because I don’t believe I do love her. Like, Spargett, we have not had the best time living together.

We talk often but rarely exchange “I love you’s.” I think it’s just not in our style to say it all the time. Perhaps once every couple weeks? Maybe a little less.

I don’t have to say it actually. The way we are you will never mistake it. My parents are saints. I’m not kidding there is a place for them in heaven that has their names on it. I love them more than anything on this universe.

Right before I hang up the phone….a coupla times a day.

@spargett and @Kay I am so sorry. I hope all is better now. I can’t imagine how hard that was.

susanc's avatar

I NEVER told her I loved her between the ages of about l5 and about 35, but then things
got better. Now I tell her I love her every week or so. She died in 1987.

El_Cadejo's avatar

I tell my mom i love her and give her a kiss goodbye every time i leave the house.

TheHaight's avatar

@susanc: I’m so glad things got better for you. @uberbatman: really? thats so cute!!!

Allie's avatar

uberbatman: that is very cute.

stevenb's avatar

I came close to dying in 95 and ever since, I always try to tell everyone how I feel about them when we part. I don’t want to leave anyone wondering if I was to go suddenly. I have found also that it is useless to hold grudges or stay mad at people. I try to move on, forgive and forget. And I always try to remember that somewhere there is someone that loves almost everyone.

Thanks to you, I just did!

I have a great mother that I am very grateful for. I tell her I love her often. We don’t live in the same town so I tell her I love her whenever I hang up the phone after talking to her. I am also lucky enough to have an ‘adopted’ mom. She is someone who accepted me like a daughter at a time when I badly needed a home away from home. That was over 30 yrs ago and she never got rid of me! I have an unending debt of love to her and tell her I love her often too.

25 long years since my folks both passed, and I still miss them.
