I Love You Mom: A Mother's Day Story - iVillage

Quite often I could never find the right words to tell my mother how much she meant to me. I was 26 years old with six-year-old twins, she was my mentor, my mother and my friend and I was about to lose her. My mother was dying of cancer and there was not a single thing that I could do to change that. I tried by actions to show her how much she meant to me and how much I loved her. Then a wonderful song came out on the radio, I never have had the chance to thank the artist, but that song became "MY" song to my mother.

The first time I heard "I just called to say I love you" I started to cry and knew that it was exactly what I needed to say to my mom. I shared that song with her, and it became "OUR" song. I have some very precious memories of that song and my mother that I think of often, and whenever I am out and hear "OUR" song, I know my mother is still with me.

Thank you for the chance to share these thoughts, I have often wanted to express them.
