Sometimes, “I love you” can’t convey what your mother means to you

Every time a child is born, so is a mother. Although we do not have an instructional manual for life, we are each given special women to guide us, help us through our challenges and cheer us on when we succeed.

My mother lived with a chronic illness, but the sickness that took her away from me was quick and unexpected. I always told my mom I loved her, but in the years since her death, I often think of other things I wish I’d said to her. Sometimes, “I love you” can’t convey what your mother means to you. Here are 15 things to say to your mom before its too late.

#1 I’m sorry

Over the years, you'll inconvenience your mom, disobey her, embarrass her and even hurt her. It's a good thing to acknowledge her patience and unconditional love.

#4 Can you write that down?

From household tips to family stories, the list of things my mom told me, that I've now forgotten, is huge. I wish I'd thought to ask her to write it down.

#5 What is your recipe for potato salad?

No one makes it quite like mom. You will crave it, your family will ask you for it, so make sure her signature recipe is handed down in writing.

#7 Let’s just sit and talk

Enjoy the time you have together. Take the time to get to know her as a person and not just your mom. Ask about her friends, her hobbies, things she's done and things she'd like to do. Let her know she's worth your time and attention.

#8 How old was I when … ?

Mom is practically the only source for knowledge of your milestones. Dads only seem to remember the events, not the time frame.

#9 Let me do the dishes

A dish-free evening is one of the most appreciated gifts you'll ever give to a mother. She'll get up from the table with a weight lifted from her shoulders.
