  5. My memory of my mom is her baking cookies in the kitchen. She bakes the best, and was always encouraged by others to open her own business. She never did because she wants to bake for just family and friends and said she wouldn’t enjoy it if she had to do it every day. We are a lucky family to be able to enjoy her cookies!

  6. Loved spending time with mom–cooking, baking, etc. She always had time for a story and loved to play jacks.

  7. I always love cooking with my mom. I remember she used to let me lick the spoon whenever she would make my favorite cookies.

  8. My best memory is my mom supporting me in every single thing I did – sports, music, church, she was always there cheering me on.

  9. I am blessed with a wonderful mother, and I have so many great memories (and plan to make many more!) One of my favorites is presenting her with her first grandchild when my son was born. She drove 300 miles in a terrible snow/ice storm to be there when we came home from the hospital, then cooked a full Thanksgiving meal for us to enjoy in our smell rented trailer house. It was truly a magical time together.

  10. My favorite memory was coming home after a hard day at school and having grilled cheese cut into triangles!

  11. one of the best memories i have of my Momma , is sitting at the kitchen table watching her make apple and blackberry pies…She would roll that dough out into perfect circles…She made peeling and slicing those apples look so easy…always with a paring knife,, and do you know,, to this day, i still use a paring knife to slice things, just like my Momma taught me to do…She passed away in 1978…i was 23 at the time…So hard to lose a parent that young…i still needed my Mommy…lol..i miss her still so much…Thanks for letting me share those memories with y’all..

  12. One of my favorite memories is baking cookies with my mom. She always let us decorate them. Now she does the same with my boys.

  13. My Mom was the sweetest person. She was only 52 when she passed away. I miss her terribly.

  14. That is tough to choose….but I think singing in the car with my mom was and still is pretty awesome!

  15. As my mother had M.S. which disabled her ablity to walk during my growing years, I spent many hours watching her crochet afaghans and watching her soap opras on T.V. The soaps are no longer on, however I still do make afaghans in my spare time.

  16. I loved summers at the beach. My favorite memories are seeing my mom and her girlfriends sitting at the pool when us kids came back for the beach. Mama would dry me off and feed me a sandwich from the cooler. We would tell stories and share memories. I can’t wait to share the same memories with my son.

  17. Favorite memory would be going to the duck pond and feeding the ducks with the left over bread crusts from lunch. It was so fun and I remember it fondly.

  18. My favorite memory of my mom was probably when my little sister was born. I was only 8 years old, but I remember how much joy my sister brought to our house!

  19. My favorite memory of my mom is the way she adores and loves her grandchildren. She has a way of making each one feel so special and loved.

  20. Luckily, I’m still able to make memories with mom. My favorite has been our girls weekends to NYC. We used to go every year. I’m excited to start them agian soon and bring my 8 year old daughter with us!

  21. My favorite memories are when we would go on family vacations. We all just had more fun, and my mom really seemed to loosen up. It was nice. Thanks for the chance to win!

  22. My favorite memory was of my mom making her special fruit salad for us on holidays and birthdays. It was always the best because we didn’t get it often.

  23. My mom was a single mom and we didn’t have much but she made sure every Friday was game night where my older sister,myself and my mom would play board games. It was alot of fun.

  24. One of my favorite memories is shopping in the rain….it still makes me smile every time I think of that day.

  25. Despite working full-time, my mother had a delicious, well balanced meal every night. My favorite memory of her is on Saturday mornings when we would bake together. We both still love to cook and bake today!

  26. My favorite childhood memory in the kitchen with my mother involved an ill-fated attempt to make my great grandmother’s famous fudge. To this day, neither of us really know what went wrong (and we have both successfully made it since then), but instead of a delicious, velvety smooth pan of goodness, we ended up with a concrete mess. It was so horrible that we broke a knife trying to cut it and we had to throw it away pan and all, because we just couldn’t chisel it out! Any time either of us makes a recipe that flops, it is now referred to as “making Grandma Ellen’s fudge.”

  27. My favorite memory is of her cooking her special chocolate pie in the kitchen. I was always in there wanting to help and she always let me lick the spoon when she finished pouring the chocolate into the pie crust. It was so good and she loved cooking. Even though she worked full-time she always cooked for us every night.

  28. My favorite memory of my mom is a trip we spent together traveling to Panama City, Panama with my grandmother who was 98 years old at the time. We wheeled Grandma all over the city and through Atlanta Airport, and I’ve never been so proud of my mom. She was so determined to take Grandma on this trip (Grandma had been so determined to take my mom and I to Panama, where some members of our family moved during the Great Depression to work on the canal). My mom has since moved Grandma (who turns 101 May 18th) into our home in Asheville, NC and she is fully committed to the full-time job of caring for her. She’s an inspiration to me and a blessing to our whole family.

  29. One of my favorite memories of my mom is when she would take me by the Dairy Queen after school for an ice cream snack!

  32. One of my favorite memories of my Mom would be her teaching me how to make homemade bread. There are 5 of us kids and when we would get done with the bread it didn’t last long as we all devoured it while it was warm with lots of butter and homemade strawberry jam.

  33. My mom lost her husband, (my father) and her mother in the same year ( i was only 3, my brother 9) and i remember her being so strong, and worked hard to support us, cooked dinner every single night, and took care of everything for us!

I am moving back to the coast as soon as i can to be closer her every day! She is still going strong and taking care of a home with herself and my wonderful loving stepfather, who joined our lives when i was 10.

  34. My mom had a huge gaggle of kids (a yours-mine&ours family to put cheaper by the dozen to shame) but she still did special things with us like taking us to the roller theater or the skating rink or out to get a treat. It was important to her.

  35. My mom just turned 80, we do so many things together, but my favorite thing I will always remember and be amazed by is how she helps me care for my 3 year old granddaughter.

A favorite picture of us is from that particular birthday, where I am about 4 and have a little blow-up swimming circle around me and my mom is standing behind me 🙂

  47. My favorite memory of my mother is when I was on a traveling bowling league. She made a bet with me that if I picked up a split, she would dance to Michael Jackson’s Bad in the middle of the bowling alley! I got the split and her dancing in the middle of the bowling alley was the best! People even started throwing change at her feet!!! I loved it and she is the best mom anyone can have!

  48. My favorite memory of my mom is the smell of her face lotion that I can remember from when she would tuck me in and kiss me good night.

  51. I think my favorite memory of my mother is also one of my earliest – I was watching her iron.

  53. My favorite memory is fresh raspberry pies my mom would make. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  54. My favorite memory of my mom is when she and I went on a mother daughter trip to Florida. We made little stops along the way to explore.

  57. my favorite memory of my mom is one where I am about 4 years old helping her out making Christmas cookies in the kitchen at my first home, our apartment. While we made the cookies, I watched Christmas specials on our little black and white tv that my mom pulled toward the kitchen so I could work at the table with her to make the cookies and watch the tv at the same time. As I recall, I was dressed in flannel footie pjs too. what a great night that was!

  58. I loved sitting with Momma while she curled my hair for church. As a teen I did all I could to straighten it! I miss her…

  59. I just loved always being able to come home and talk to my mom. Now I just call her all the time 🙂

  61. I can remember coming home from school & my Mom always had a snack ready for us, & she always made great desserts to have after dinner. I’m still amazed how she could take the simplest ingredients and always come up with delicious meals.

  62. I love my mom’s love of cooking and experimenting in the kitchen! I only hope I can be half as good a cook as she is!!

  63. I remember coming home from school each day and smelling her wonderful food cooking. She would have me stir pots while she did other things and we would talk about our day. I miss her a lot now that she is gone. I learned a lot in the kitchen from her!

  64. I loved the times of lying on my mom’s bed at night and talking about anything and everything!

  65. My mom has been gone for 31 years. When I was young and in Girl Scouts my mom actually went on a camping trip with us. This was so out of her realm of being comfortable but she actually had a great time. I was so proud of her.

  66. my favorite memory of mom is really a smell. the smell of her robe when she hugged me in the morning 🙂

  67. One of my favorite memories is learning to cook with my mom. Which I now have the pleasure of trying to teach my dad. Mom had a stroke 2 years ago and is not able to do any cooking so I am so glad for the skills and memories to pass down.
