WIN a mobile! What would you say on a Mother’s Day call?

by Charlotte.Barnes on March 24, 2011

Interflora has teamed up with Breast Cancer Care to run an exciting competition to celebrate Mother’s Day. For your chance to win a Rose and Lily Hand Tied Bouquet and a Sony Ericsson phone, please tell us what you would say to your Mum when you call her on Mother’s Day.

Every year 46,000 women and men hear the devastating news that they have breast cancer. That’s one person every 11 minutes. The confusion and fear that this causes will be felt not just by the person diagnosed, but by their family and friends too.

Across the UK, Breast Cancer Care provides skilled emotional and practical support through a range of face-to-face services, helping people every step of the way.

Breast Cancer Care relies on the generosity of their supporters to ensure that services remain free to use and widely available. Interflora has raised an amazing £640,000 over the past 6 years and if you would like to add to this total then please buys your Mother’s Day flowers through our joint online flower shop:

To enter this fantastic competition just tell us what you’d say to your mum in a Mother’s Day phone call in the comments below. Our favourite will win a BCC-branded Sony Ericsson W595 mobile phone and a fabulous Rose & Lily Hand-Tied bouquet! Closing dates for entries is Monday 28th March.

For more information about Breast Cancer Care please visit or follow on Twitter @bccare.

The winner

The lucky winner is Wendy Pearson with her beautiful ode to Mum!

You’re a ‘blooming’ inspiration,
a prize ‘rose’ between the thorns,
a ‘bouquet’ of information,
a ‘button-hole’ one adorns.
From when this ‘seed’ was sown,
I’ve spread, but you left room,
to cultivate a ‘climber’,
and let me simply ‘bloom’!
You nurtured and you tended,
carefully helped me grow;
hope this hybrid turns out like Mum;
always:- ‘BEST in SHOW’!!

if heaven had a phone i would talk to you every day love and miss you mum ALWAYS XXXXXXXXXXXX

Alison 24 Mar 2011 at 4:14 pm

I would tell my mum I love her, I don’t do this often enough.

Chris Bull 24 Mar 2011 at 4:17 pm

I would say “Happy Mothers Day Mum, see you soon to take you out to lunch, Love you lots”

Instead of on my old clapped out Nokia “Hpy Mot Dy M, you soo to ta y o to lch, Lo yo lo because it keeps cutting out when trying to have a chat 🙁

Lindy 24 Mar 2011 at 4:20 pm

Mum you were there to wipe my tears,
To help me overcome my fears,
To listen to me and offer advice,
If only everyone had a mum this nice.

wendy jones 24 Mar 2011 at 4:20 pm

I would say to my mom. I think you are such an inspiration to me, looking after dad (who suffers with Parkinsons) supporting my sister (who recently had a mastectomy) and still with a smile on your face. Love you loads mom x

ruth hunter 24 Mar 2011 at 4:27 pm

Happy Mother’s day! Where am I? Right outside your room! Surprise!

jade clancy 24 Mar 2011 at 4:30 pm

My mum passed away 10 years ago of cancer. If I could call her this Mothers Day, I’d tell her what I think every day of my life without her. How amazing she is, how I love and miss her so much, and where the bejiggity did she put my university degree certificate because me and my dad have never found it since she went to heaven! We think she was so proud that she took it with her 😉

Julie Henderson 24 Mar 2011 at 4:30 pm

I love you, cherish you and appreciate everything you hae done to help me through my depression and my son wouldnt be the man he is today without your support xxxxx

Ian Henderson 24 Mar 2011 at 4:31 pm

I would say “i miss you more and more each day and would love to have one last day to spend with you before you were taken too soon”

Louise 24 Mar 2011 at 4:34 pm

Hi Mum it’s Louise… Happy Mother’s Day. Just want to let you know how much you mean to me & to let you know that I am proud of you. You have always been there for me through the good & the bad regardless of how stroppy or rude I might have been at times. Your unconditional love and support stays with me in my heart. You’re my hero Mum, you inspire me everyday… After everything you’ve been through you have ALWAYS came out the other side smiling. Breast Cancer was a massive part of your life, but it’s not who you are, it didn’t define you as a person and certainly never knocked you down. Yes it was a massive blow to you and all of our family. But, you got through it and you were such an inspiration. Especially when you ran the 5K Race For Life to raise money for Cancer Research at the amazing age of 62. I LOVE YOU MUM, ALWAYS AND FOREVER TO THE MOON AND BACK. Lots of Love from your Little Girl Lou xxxxxxxxxxxxx

kushla pope 24 Mar 2011 at 4:44 pm

i’d probably say ‘shut up for god’s sake!’ as i can never get a word in edgeways. then, when i’d got her to stop gabbing, i’d say ‘i love you mum. i’ve bought you a huge bunch of flowers. they’re going to be delivered later. now you can talk’.

Amanda Robertson 24 Mar 2011 at 4:59 pm

I knew you’d pick up as you are always there for me like I’m here now at your front door waiting to take you out. x

claire 24 Mar 2011 at 5:16 pm

I would tell my mum how funny it is that I only know now i’m a mum of three, how fun, challenging and stressful it was to raise me and my siblings and no matter how much she told me back then about how life unfolds, you only appreciate it when you’ve done it yourself. Just as she’s learning from her mum, i’m learning from my mum; from raising children to silly mannerisms we come out with. We squabbled a lot when i was a teen and becoming a mum at 17, i had to grow up a lot. I didn’t know back then how much we all meant to her, but now having kids of my own, i know that even when they’re all grown up, you never stop worrying or caring. As long as you have a Mum, you have someone who’ll be there for you.

Fiona Hunter 24 Mar 2011 at 5:44 pm

I’d thank her for all she’s ever done,
For the laughter through the tears & the fun.
I’d tell her I think she’s the best,
That she always seems to overcome any test.
I’d remind her I admire her always,
Despite any rare down days.

Then once that is said, I’d say to her softly,
That when I one day become a mother,
I’ll hope to be even half the woman she has been since she had me.

That day in 1986, when I came into the world,
My mother was then 44, and I was her baby girl.

Well mum I’m still your baby girl now,
And I hope to continue making you proud.

Words can come easy, and can be recycled, it’s true,
But mum you’re my inspiration and my heart is full of love for you.


marina shaw 24 Mar 2011 at 6:06 pm

i would say ”i love you mum and i’m so pleased you have recieved the all clear after first being diagnosed with breast cancer,you are such a wonderful mum and i’m proud of the lot’s of amazing voluntary work you do for pals.If i am as strong and selfless as you it would be an honour to be like you”

Leanne Humpage 24 Mar 2011 at 6:34 pm

I would say ” thank you for being such an inspiration, for always having a smile on your face no matter what you have been through, for letting me lead my own life and allowing me to make my own decisions and mistakes but always being there to comfort me. But most of all for living life to the full, being full of adventure and being the best mum ever”

Kelly Martin 24 Mar 2011 at 6:36 pm

I would tell my Mum how grateful I was for her accepting me as I am. And for supporting me through difficult times this year. I would thank her for loving me unconditionally while the rest of my family and society may judge me for being different, she has shown nothing but acceptance and appreciation. And for this I want her to know she is an amazing Mum that I love. HAPPY MOTHERS day Mam.

Rhydian 24 Mar 2011 at 6:47 pm

Everyone thinks they have the best mum in the World, but you really are the greatest mum ever.
You accept me for being me and you support everything I do.
You give me unconditional love and you are alway there when I need you.
I love you mum and I hope you like the interflora flowers.

Julie 24 Mar 2011 at 8:17 pm

Mum, I miss you, I’m so glad I got to tell you that “I love you” before you died. I think of you every day and know that you are with me all the time. I give you hugs in my mind when I need your support and remember you stroking my hair as we hugged towards the end. I love you always. J x

JOANNA MILLS 24 Mar 2011 at 8:19 pm

Your amazing Mum and your flowers are on the way x x

carole 24 Mar 2011 at 9:11 pm

I would tell my mum how much I love and appreciate her and thank her for always being there when I need her and for being my hero and an inspiration in life :).

Katie Corr 24 Mar 2011 at 9:11 pm

I would tell my mum a simple thing , don’t worry about a thing because you will always have me , just how I have always had you . We need nothing but each other and you are my best friend and I love you . If I can grow up having an inch of your warm , love and personality – I will be one happy lady . I love you xxx

Julie Thomas 24 Mar 2011 at 9:44 pm

Mom its several years since you left us
we cared for you up to the end
before that you were always the carer
and of course our best friend
we have so many happy memories
and unspoken words we wished to share
but most of all we want to say ‘I love you’
and laugh with you once again

will tunnicliffe 24 Mar 2011 at 9:45 pm

I love you so much.

Kasie 24 Mar 2011 at 9:52 pm

Mum, you have been there for me through the good and bad times, the highs and the lows. When I have ever needed a shoulder to cry on yours is the one that is always there. You are my mum and also my best friend. You mean the world to me and I would be lost without you. Thanks for everything you have helped me get through and done over the years. I couldn’t ask for a better mum or best friend. Mum I love you so much xx

Georgia 24 Mar 2011 at 10:34 pm

I would tell her how well she manages because she has a lot of family commitments with teenagers and poorly family members and remind her that she is doing a good job. I would tell her I love her very much, and that I wish for once she would just take a little time for herself, but I would also say a big thanks for what she does do, as she is a very thoughtful caring person. Love you mum x

Rose 24 Mar 2011 at 10:37 pm

I would say Happy Mothers Day and tell her that although life has been a little hard lately, she has managed things wonderfully, that things will improve and I am always thinking about her and am very thankful for all those thoughtful things she does for us all. Also that she has through life given me so many skills that have helped me with my own family.

Julie Davies 24 Mar 2011 at 10:52 pm

Would love to have the chance to have a laugh and joke with you again, miss you loads, hope you can watch over us in heaven and are proud of how we are all turning out.

joanne saunders 24 Mar 2011 at 10:58 pm

Id phone her and say your special day has just started how would you like your breakfast this morning a healthy one or a big fry up and it will be with her in 10 minutes with a nice boquet of flowers and a little present (held by a smiling daughter saying happy mothers day mum your the best ) 🙂

Joanne Glenn 24 Mar 2011 at 11:12 pm

Happy Mothers Day!! Not only are you my Mum but my best friend. I love you more than words can say, hope you have a wonderful day! 🙂

Sarah Foran 24 Mar 2011 at 11:35 pm

I would say thanks for showing me the example and inspiration of being a great mother to my children

Matthew Burr 24 Mar 2011 at 11:58 pm

I wouldnt say…. I’d sing ” I just called to say……. I love you” she loves Lionel Richie and I love her for it 🙂

Stuart Dunlop 25 Mar 2011 at 12:08 am

Mummy –

I came into the world, just last year,
With great joy and many a tear.
For eight months now, I have grown
With many a cry, and a little moan.

I have thrown my food in every direction.
While you look for any protection.
My collection of nappies is growing fast.
But will my hobby ever last?

I sleep at any time I choose.
When I awake, You are having a snooze!
You have large bags under your eyes,
Looking after me, it’s no surprise!

You have seen this every day,
Yet your love has never gone astray.
I wish I could repay your everlasting love.
Maybe ‘Interflora’ can answer the above?

Lots of Love
Miss Kirsty Dunlop

Aidan B. 25 Mar 2011 at 1:09 am

I would say, Thanks so so much gran for taking me in your tender loving care since I was two, for showing me love, stability, concern & making life ‘fun’
for teaching me right from wrong,
I appreciate it, you have been a Grand(mum) to me
oh & by the way I have entered you in a wonderful Interflora competition to win flowers & a mobile that you so much need, isnt it ‘blooming’ marvellous Interflora put up this comp, I hope you win grandmum,,, I love you x x

Sorcha H. 25 Mar 2011 at 1:49 am

I would say, “Hallo mum, I’m not sure why I’m calling because I live with you.” And then I’d stop being a smartypants and say, “I know that you feel guilty because I left a job I loved to take care of you. And it’s absolutely ridiculous, madam! You’ve looked after me for more than two decades; raised me to be an open-minded, compassionate person who lives to love and loves to laugh.

“There’ll come a time when I can’t look after you anymore, when your disease finally stops you moving altogether, or when one of us gets hit by that bolt of lightning you always say God’ll strike us with for making naughty jokes. So please know that for now, and for always, I love being able to look after you, and I love being with you, no matter the cost. You only get one Mum in your life, and to me you’re my mum first, my burden never.”

Margaret Akel 25 Mar 2011 at 8:20 am

Happy Mother’s Day, Mum. I love you and always will.

Geri Gibson 25 Mar 2011 at 10:15 am

When you became a Mum with me
No longer were you fancy free
You gave up all those dreams you had
And settled for the good and bad
You worked and fought to get through life
Courageous Mum and Caring Wife
Now it’s my turn to ‘tell and show’
My love for you before you go

Crystal Mse 25 Mar 2011 at 10:15 am

I know whatever has happened and will happen in my life , you will be beside me , supporting me and having complete faith in me . I really don’t know where you get your energy from … but it rubs off on me ! You’ve been my best friend , chauffeur , nurse , counselor , cook and personal jester ! ! ! Through the bad times , through the good you have been *more* than enough . I just cannot wait to start a family of my own so I can treat my children as lovingly as you have treated me . I still can’t believe how much you have sacrified for me and my brothers and sisters . I want to pay you back so much but I know there’s nothing I can do to show you my gratitude . Except maybe giving you a whopper of a hug and squeezing you until your eyeballs pop out ! Hehe !
Thank you for your love and devotion . Lastly … I STILL love you , even if you take your house brick of a mobile phone out on the bus ! ! ! x

Kerry Farrow 25 Mar 2011 at 10:57 am

I would say thank you for taching me the skills to be a Mummy myself. If I turn out nearly half as good as you I am doing ok! I am in awe of your strength and wisdom and morality and you inspire me to become a better person. Love you always. x

Judith Books 25 Mar 2011 at 12:18 pm

I would wish her Happy Mothers Day, but I would have to be at home as I don’t have a mobile!

Judith Allen 25 Mar 2011 at 5:12 pm

I would say, Happy Mother’s Day mum, are we still on for shopping and cake tomorrow?

Jenny 25 Mar 2011 at 6:27 pm

Sorry I can’t be with you today, but I hope the flowers I sent make your day. Love you lots and see you soon.

Tracey H 25 Mar 2011 at 6:31 pm

Happy mothers day mam.The flowers would say the rest for me.

Fran Light 25 Mar 2011 at 9:10 pm

I would say “See you in a bit!” because I’m going round to see her on Mother’s Day!

sarah morris 25 Mar 2011 at 9:46 pm



Jasmine Collier 26 Mar 2011 at 12:42 am

Sadly my Mum has passed away, I still miss her lots. I would love to be able to ring her to say ‘Mum you have a new great grandson’ She would have been so happy.

Jan Wood 26 Mar 2011 at 3:59 pm

I would say thanks for being a great mum and always being there
for me. Happy Mothers Day, your the best xxxx

Rachel Perkins 26 Mar 2011 at 5:23 pm

Hi Mum, its me, what? yep, yep, yep! She never!!!! Really???

Oh by the way happy mothers day, you’re the best!

Really? And then what did she say? Never!

Jacqui Williams 26 Mar 2011 at 5:45 pm

It would be short and simple, to Mum with love and non-squashy hugs, every day should be a Mothers’ Day x
Mum was diagnosed with cancer this year and is trying hard to get mobile (no pun intended :-)) again after her operation. She relies on her mobile to call Dad if he doesn’t hear her, as she can’t move too well.

Kirsty 26 Mar 2011 at 6:00 pm

Mum – I’m glad you’re in my life, and I love you lots and lots, ‘cos you’re bloomin’ great! xxx

emma cella 26 Mar 2011 at 9:50 pm

Hi Mom
You will never know how special you are to me. You have tought me to be a mom. Over the years i watched you and today i walk in the foot steps of you to be a good example to my daughter and a leading role model mom just like you.
I love you mom with all my heart.

Lydia Houghton 27 Mar 2011 at 1:59 am

I am great at making chips,
Growing spuds and changing zips.
I can make a fudge ganache,
Or knit a sweater in a flash.
I can Salsa like a good ‘un,
You should try my Yorkshire puddin’.
I know how to change a fuse,
I always mind my Ps and Qs.
People say that I’m astute,
(They also say my bottom’s cute!)
But when folk say that I am great,
I shake my head and put them straight…
All the things that make me proud,
Are down to you – you showed me how!
(And as regards my perfect bum…
It’s good genetics – thank you mum!)

Mark R 27 Mar 2011 at 3:39 am

i love you mum, today is your day, i’ll be over soon with some flowers and a mobile phone to make today, your day, a very special day, i love you mum xXx

Ian 27 Mar 2011 at 10:53 am

I love you, thank you for always being there for me through the good times and the bad, not judging me and picking up the pieces.
Without you I would never have coped with what life has thrown at me.

Beverley Leek 27 Mar 2011 at 2:06 pm

Unfortunately my Mum passed away 2 years ago, but if I could send a message i’d tell her, how much I miss her and love her and I’m trying to live life to the fullest as time is so short and shouldn’t be wasted. ♥

Cristina 27 Mar 2011 at 2:43 pm

Happy Mothers Day (really, you needed me to tell you this?)

susan elizabeth james 27 Mar 2011 at 2:48 pm

I would (and shall) thank my mum for always being interested in my schoolchild hopes and dreams, teenage dramas and angst,as a newly married and proud wife for countless cooking tips and good advice, her reassurance when I was a new and anxious mum for her support (also babysitting help), ditto her good advice ‘that all will be well’ (and it was) when my sons were going through the obligatory teenage problems and onward to now when I am a newly fledged pensioner myself with some of the health problems that come with it, and last but not least for at the grand age of 90yrs making me laugh out loud constantly (albeit not always intentionally one her part)

Melissa Sharpe 27 Mar 2011 at 7:59 pm

Since I hope to be calling from a Sony Ericsson W595, I would say: “SONY me, Mum – Happy Mother’s Day!”

Susan Robinson 28 Mar 2011 at 1:17 am

I would thank my mum for making me the person I am today and tell her that I now appreciate all of the rules that we had when I was growing up. I would thank her for keeping me safe and teaching me how to be a wonderful mum to my own children x

Christine Bray 28 Mar 2011 at 2:25 am

Dear Mother your cup raneth over your heart was so full your life was for living and never seemed dull. Your still precious in my memory and this I pray to wish all mothers love on Mothering Sunday

Julie Johnson 28 Mar 2011 at 12:35 pm

If my mom was alive, I would say, hi mum, only me, have you had a good day? and at the end of the call, I would say, Love you

Melanie McNair 28 Mar 2011 at 12:41 pm

Hi mum, you’ve been so fantastic to us. The way you’ve always been there for me specially since my husband had his brain tumour and have supported me with your love and dedication. Love you always

Heather 28 Mar 2011 at 12:41 pm

To my dear sister
You are only 12 years older than me but you have always been my second Mum. My earliest memories are of you taking me by the hand to go for a walk and teasing me over my imaginary friend. Through the years we have shared some good times and suffered some bad times not least the loss of our dear Mum… have been there through it all. Mother’s day is a day when I get to tell you how much you mean to me and to thank you for your selfless love and support. I love you Sis……….

SANDRA SCRODER 28 Mar 2011 at 1:21 pm

i have arranged a family lunch at a local pub, on mothers day so all her children/granchildren and great gran children, can show her how much she is loved

Rachel Harding 28 Mar 2011 at 1:30 pm

I will be saying ‘Sorry I can’t be with you today, I hope you like the chocs I sent and as always, love you loads.’

Sheila Maughan 28 Mar 2011 at 1:39 pm

Happy Mothers day mam you have now got 3 great grandchildren, wish you were here we all miss you.

Ann calland 28 Mar 2011 at 1:43 pm

I would just say Happy mothers day,I love you,thanks for being there and hope you enjoy your gift.

Lorell 28 Mar 2011 at 1:49 pm

I would thank her for her wisdom, for not judging me when I got pregnant but for embracing the role of grandma and being my rock and giving us both so much love.

joanne penketh 28 Mar 2011 at 1:51 pm

Your not only my mam, but my best friend too, I couldn’t do without you and appreciate your help. If I win this competition you have to give up your old fashioned phone as I’ve won you a new one

Tracy 28 Mar 2011 at 2:08 pm

You’ve not only helped me financially during the two and half years of a stressful divorce (which thankfully is coming close to an end now) but you’ve been there for me every step of the way. We’re like sister’s rather than Mother and Daughter and I love you so much. I don’t know what I’d do without you. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

Derek Wallin 28 Mar 2011 at 2:25 pm

I would say “Thank you for being at the end of a phone whenever I need to talk to you and ask advice.”

melanie crumpton 28 Mar 2011 at 2:30 pm

Happy Mothers Day mum… I love you x

Joan 28 Mar 2011 at 2:32 pm

I’d say thanks for not only being the lovely Mum she has been to her 5 children, but especially for making that quality time for each of us.

Dara 28 Mar 2011 at 2:37 pm

There is a chance I would just spend most of the call crying because I miss her so much. On composing myself, I would say I’m angry that she left so suddenly without saying goodbye. But also that she’s forgiven as death often visits at when least expected. I’d tell her she was an amazing woman for adopting three children, including myself, and raising us as her own. I’d tell her how much I appreciate her accepting my being gay, even when so many people around her told her it was wrong. I would tell her that my other half’s mother now calls me son and that has made things a little easier. I would ask her to visit me in my dreams. I would ask if it was her who moved the picture that night of her funeral. If so, it was a cheap and nasty trick as I nearly jumped out of my skin! I’d tell her I love her more than any phone call could ever convey and I miss her so much I ache when I think of her. I’d ask her to call me back…

catherine geraghty 28 Mar 2011 at 2:38 pm

I would tell her how much I love her and miss her (she lives a couple of hours away). I would also thank her for being a fantastic mum and granny and for making me into a great mummy too xxx

Karen Richards 28 Mar 2011 at 2:46 pm

Happy Mothers Day Mam. Hope you have a great day. See you in a bit.

maria o 28 Mar 2011 at 2:46 pm

Words are useless when is time to describe my love for you!

I would tell my mam how much I love and miss her. Tell her I understand so much more about her since her passing. How much I would love one more cuddle.

Sharo Hingley 28 Mar 2011 at 5:31 pm

I’d say Happy Mother’s Day , if mother’s were flowers you’re the one I’d pick .

helen cooper 28 Mar 2011 at 5:37 pm

clare allen 28 Mar 2011 at 5:40 pm

Teresa Largent 28 Mar 2011 at 5:48 pm

Chrissie 28 Mar 2011 at 5:49 pm

Ever since my stepfather died suddenly last September my lovely 89 year old Mum hasn’t wanted to live, she so wants to join him. I would say “Hang in there Mum. I know that my lovely Mum, who so enjoyed life, is still inside you somewhere and in the meantime I shall do the loving for both of us and care for you and be patiently waiting until you start enjoying your life once more.” x x

nat thomason 28 Mar 2011 at 6:07 pm

Phillip 28 Mar 2011 at 6:12 pm


Mary Baldwin 28 Mar 2011 at 6:47 pm

So glad you’re back home and out of hospital – I’ve been worrying myself sick about you. Glad you’re out in time for Mother’s Day so we can spoil you properly just as you deserve.

Sue Smith 28 Mar 2011 at 6:58 pm

My Mum died suddenly from a heart attack 23 years ago. If I could send her a message on Mother’s Day, it would be to say goodbye and thanks for being my Mum, as I didn’t have the chance to say it when she died.

Susan Menzies 28 Mar 2011 at 7:21 pm

Happy Mothers Day Mum, thank you just for being you and for always being there for me, it means so much!

Alison Reid 28 Mar 2011 at 7:41 pm

mum, we’ve had good times and bad
fun times and sad.
but through it all,
we’ve had a ball
because we’re stronger as two
than the strongest superglue!
thanks for being you

Ian Campbell 28 Mar 2011 at 8:21 pm

I love you Mum, everything you’ve done for me over the years is very much appreciated even though I don’t always tell you. Happy Mothers Day, hope you have a lovely day!

katherine moroney 28 Mar 2011 at 8:25 pm

I would sing her the song I sang to her down the phone whenever we were apart when i was a kid…. Stevie Wonders “I just called to say I love you”… What better Mothers Day Sentiment?? (despite my singing) 😀

sue c. 28 Mar 2011 at 8:38 pm

sorry – i hope i’m as good a mum as you – i had no idea it was so hard!

Lee Gardner 28 Mar 2011 at 8:41 pm

i dont ring you very often, but you mean the world to me and if you were not here i would miss you dearly

Linda 28 Mar 2011 at 8:44 pm

If mum’s were flowers, you’re the one I’d pick XX

Soraya Rodrigues 28 Mar 2011 at 8:51 pm

You mean everything to me.

Rob Clayton 28 Mar 2011 at 8:53 pm

Love you loads mum, thanks for everything you do for me and your there always

claire woods 28 Mar 2011 at 9:09 pm

I’d simply say ‘I may not say it every day, I may not cuddle you every day now that I am grown up but you are my mum and I love you lots every day’

kirsty bryant 28 Mar 2011 at 9:13 pm

I Miss You, Mam
I used to think that people didn’t need
their mams so much after they grew up.
But I’ve realized that’s not true.
So often, when I’m making a decision,
I wish you were here
so I could ask your advice.
And so many times,
when something happens
that I know you would enjoy,
I wish you were here
to share it with me.
Now that I’m older
somehow it makes me miss you more..
Mam I love you and miss you so very much.

helen newton 28 Mar 2011 at 9:26 pm

Your name means “Tower of strength” and thats what you are…..
You are wonderful and when other people say they have the best mum in the World they are wrong, because you are…
Love you always x x x Didi

daniel evans 28 Mar 2011 at 9:38 pm

Dawn 28 Mar 2011 at 9:49 pm

I’d say “Hope you liked the flowers from Interflora….I know they are amazing!”

Sharon Bell 28 Mar 2011 at 9:56 pm

Happy Mothers Day to the best mum in the world :o) We all love you be round shortly with the Interflora personal delivery :o)

Diane Ayres 28 Mar 2011 at 10:06 pm

I would just play Stevie Wonder’s song ‘I just called to say I love you’ to her. It says it all really and is a wonderful song for a wonderful lady.

Sarah Cooper 28 Mar 2011 at 10:09 pm

I love you so much mum. Thank you for protecting us from a lot of the pain when our dad was getting sick, for making us always feel loved and secure when he finally passed away. For putting up with the angry teenage years all by yourself and always showering us with love. For being there every step of the way when I became a mother myself and for just being there in general. I still have images of you leaving me on my first day at school and sniffing my tissue because it still had the smell of you on. I still feel that amount of love for you and I always will. LOVE YOU MUM!

Linda Hine 28 Mar 2011 at 10:17 pm

Mum, you are a special lady
you’ve known me since I was a baby
So have the greatest Mother’s Day
And celebrate in every way!

s martin 28 Mar 2011 at 10:23 pm

hey mum, happy mothers day, see you in an hour get you glad rags on – time for a little ‘you’ time – we are off shopping and out for a slap up lunch!!

Lisa Boyce 28 Mar 2011 at 10:31 pm

Mum, you have one of the hardest jobs in the world and often thankless. Knowone has a more golden heart then you . If I am in pain, you feel it more then I do . I depend on you more then I should.

Happy Mothers Day. Enjoy

Mary Chez 28 Mar 2011 at 10:35 pm

Like a few other people who have already commented my mum is no longer here…but if she were I would simply say …I love you very much

terina davidson 28 Mar 2011 at 10:50 pm

my mum passed away 6yrs ago, if i could phone her, i would simply say, ” i love you very much & as always you will be in my heart & mind,you are the best mum ever.

Wendy Pearson 28 Mar 2011 at 11:09 pm

You’re a ‘blooming’ inspiration,
a prize ‘rose’ between the thorns,
a ‘bouquet’ of information,
a ‘button-hole’ one adorns.
From when this ‘seed’ was sown,
I’ve spread, but you left room,
to cultivate a ‘climber’,
and let me simply ‘bloom’!
You nurtured and you tended,
carefully helped me grow;
hope this hybrid turns out like Mum;
always:- ‘BEST in SHOW’!!

Charlotte Hoskins 28 Mar 2011 at 11:22 pm

I will be at my Mum’s house on mother’s day, but I will call her when I hear her waking up at 6am so that I can gain every minute possible in my nice warm bed!! I’ll ask her if she wants a cuppa and tell her that I love her. I’ll also tell her that she deserves a lie in on this day so I can have an extra hours’ kip too!!!

Rebecca Smith 28 Mar 2011 at 11:26 pm

I would tell my mum I loved her, how grateful I am for her and how I’m sorry for how I behaved over the last few years and that I hope she forgives me.

Trudi Walsh 28 Mar 2011 at 11:54 pm

First I would wish her a Happy Mother’s Day, then I would thank her for being not just my mum, but my best friend too and for supporting me and never judging me for all my wrong choices, then I would tell her I love her so much.

bee 28 Mar 2011 at 11:57 pm

Think of you everyday and I hope that you as my star in my sky are thinking of me too.
I’m sorry you didn’t get to meet your grandson but he knows you are his ‘nana’ in sincere spirit.
I hope you are now at peace and able to enjoy all the experiences and pursuits and happiness that heaven may bring.
I miss you.

jacqui ruddy 29 Mar 2011 at 12:01 am

My mum Enid will be 70 in May. She has gone through a bad time in the last few years, losing her sister, brother and friend last year. She is deaf and losing her vision, and has other health problems plus has to cope with my dad who has dementia. She will be having an operation on her eye on 6th April to help her sight. I would like to tell her what a brave strong woman she is. Despite all she is going through she always puts me and her granddaughter first, never complains and just gets on with it. I would like to laugh, cry and talk about the good times. I would like to tell her she is my hero.

SUSAN HALL 29 Mar 2011 at 12:32 am

I would say – I’ve not been the best daughter in the world and have caused you lots of pain in the past but I love you and you have always been there for me no matter what decisions I made – right or wrong and have been there in the dead of night and early morning and when ever I have needed you. I hope I will always do the same for my boys and live by your example. I love you x

Dej 29 Mar 2011 at 12:34 am

“Hi Mum, quite simply, six children, a home and a career later you are simply amazing. I hope it’s genetic.

Aidan B. 31 Mar 2011 at 9:13 pm
