    My mother has taught me so much about perseverance in the face of hard times. She has had rheumatoid arthritis since she was in her 30’s and so now approaching 80, she is all about “keepin’ on”!

    My husband’s step-mom is so special to me. She did not become his step-mom until he was an adult. She is so selfless always willing to help with anything at anytime. My mother passed away 9 years ago and she had been someone who has came into my life and has truly been like a mother to me. I am amazed how wonderful she is with our children because she never had children of her own. They love her to pieces and enjoy the time that they get to spend with her. She is a remarkable woman.

    My mom is amazing. We live 18 hours apart, but she is working hard to fill my parents’ freezer and my dad’s closet with clean and ironed shirts so that she can be with me indefinitely while we anticipate the birth of our first child. I’m sure that she will work just as hard to help us once she arrives. All of this is a beautiful picture of how she loves us (and this baby!). I know she will be a wonderful grandmother!

    my daughter-in-law, besides giving me two lovely grandsons, keeps me up to date on everything which I appreciate, especially considering how hard she works and how hectic their lives have been. I know only one virtue is needed, but with her husband, (my son) in medic school, while working full time, I want to also say how supportive and understanding she’s been, since many things now fall to her.

    My mom is always there for us. I went into congestive heart failure after I gave birth to our daughter who is now 23. My mom flew out to stay with us and help out with everything. She was up with my daughter for every feeding and made sure all our meals were taken care of. She truly loves her family.

    Marnely Rodriguez-Murray — May 4, 2014 @ 8:01 am

    My mom’s endless patience with me. But I’d also like to mention my grandma and how I love talking to her. Some people say they talk to their grandma’s once a week, but at times I find myself calling her daily and we’ll talk for an hour a day if time permits! What do we talk about!? Everything and anything! I love it!

    One virtue I love about my mom is that she never butts in anyone’s business. I know hubby loves that about her too…no MIL jokes coming from him…if I can learn to control my tongue and wanting to put my two cents in with my kids, I’ll be happy.

    I miss my Mother so much,her greatest virtue was bringing up four children and having a good meal on the table every night.My mother went to work part time every night to bring in some extra monies.My Mother was a part of The Greatest Generation~born in 1920,reading that book brought my Mother back to life through her childhood.The book was wonderful and it made me understand all she went through and who I am today,through her teachings.My Mother passed her virtues on,and she lives through all of this today with me,her Daughter.
    Miss and Love you Mom
    Forever in My Heart.

    My own mom has many wonderful virtues — but… I will pick one. I love the spirit of “fair play” that she brings to our family. Everyone is treated equally, and receives special treats and the gift of time together (w/ Mom/Dad) equally. My mom is very generous with her resources, and she always shares what she has with all of us. She gives of her time equally, spending time with my kids and my sister’s kids — as well as with my sister and I. Mom has a way of making each of us feel as if we are the most important to her. She is such a blessing to our family!

    My mother has a strong virtue of faith. Since she was a little girl she loved going to church and living a kind and giving life. She has always lived with my husband and I. She helped us raise our four children plus she raised her own kids. Her sense of faith gets us through difficult times and I am thankful she has shared her faith and love with me and my family.

    My Mom lives a few thousand miles away in a different country, but I so appreciate the way she keeps connected with my kids(her grandkids). Even thought they don’t see her every year, they “know” her. She takes the time on the phone(she doesn’t skype :-) to find out what they are doing, ask about their friends, call right after a special event. She sends little(inexpensive things) that she has picked out with them in mind and it is always “just what I wanted” in their minds. My Dad passed away 2 years ago and I know I willmiss my Mom as much, if not more, when she passes away…so every phone call is treasured and never an inconvenience. Even if I am busy, I put her on speaker phone so she feels like she is int he kitchen with me while I’m prepping for company etc.

    I love the goofy way she jokes around..
    I love the way that we go on adventures and spend time together..
    I love the woman I’ve become because of her..
    but one of the most important.. is I love when I make her smile. <3

    I love my daughter’s stepmom Brandi. I call her co-mommy! It is not everyday that you can blend two families together after a rough separation. We go out for dinner, and sit together at our daughter’s sports games. There was a time when I was reluctant to share parenting responsibilities with another woman, but today I can’t imagine doing it without her. I wouldn’t trade for the world the unconditional love she gives to our Amelie. She rocks!

She never missed a competition or concert but never showed any stress in order to make it happen. I was never aware of the sacrifices she made until I had my own kids.

    My mom is deceased and i’m single so no mother-in-law — but the person i admire the most as a “mom” is my dear friend jackie— she is so giving (and sometimes i’m certain it can’t be easy with 3 teenage kids!) she ALWAYS makes time for anyone in need, making meals, dropping off whatever anyone is in need for the moment! she’s pure joy to be around — always positive! She is a GEM! love her to pieces!

    As my Mom was raising three boys of her own she opened her heart and her home to an unwed mother who needed a place to live. That unwed mother gave me away to be adopted and consequently I was adopted by that wonderful woman….my Mom.

    A friend from church has become a sort of before and after school nanny to my kids – she comes early and feeds them breakfast and drives them to school, and then she picks them up in the afternoon & does their homework with them until I get home from work. She is very hard working and caring about them like they are her grandkids. We love her dearly.

    I adore my friends mother who is like a pioneer woman! She can do anything! She raised 3 kids and she always did everything “homemade”. When her sons would go hunting, not only did she prepare the meat (my idea of totally roughing it) but she would tan the hides and make leather jackets for them! She is crazy resourceful!

    I’m so excited to take my mom on a beach vacation for Mother’s Day this year – the first vacation we’ve been on together in years! Of course, I got a sassy new hat at Target for the occasion – it wouldn’t be a beach day without a sassy new hat.

    My Mom was not content to just love and raise my sister, brother and I. She decided her heart could wrap around one-little Vietnamese boy who escaped Saigon as it fell, two special needs kids from various places on the globe and finally a bright little person in a wheel chair who just needed SOMEONE to realize that she could speak, walk and live independently if only given the chance.

    Oh there are so many things I love about her. I love most, though, that she absolutely adores her children. She has never made us feel inconvenient or like she needs a break. Now as we’re all almost grown up and moved out she takes our calls like they’re the absolute best thing to happen in her day. I love that. I always feel loved and special.
