Happy Mother's Day!

I know Mother’s Day is celebrated on different days in different countries, but this Sunday a very large number of countries where most of our members come from celebrate Mother’s Day. Here’s a small token to wish all moms in the community a VERY HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!


I am so sorry for your loss. My own mother passed in 1986 - four days after Mother’s Day, of that year.

Hugs to you.



Thank you for being so thoughtful. It is appreciated. :slight_smile: My children are adults in their early 40’s, but they are still my kids as far as I’m concerend. :slight_smile:


Thank you Manny ! I am looking foward to a nice weekend !

bless your heart and sorrow for your loss…((((hugs))))


Thanks, Lisa, for sharing that beautiful picture of your princess. I know you miss her everyday. I was intending to confess, when I thanked Manny for the wishes, that I was planning to whine a bit on Sunday for not being able to be with my grown daughters and that he had reminded me of how fortunate I am to be dealing with this disease myself as opposed to witnessing my child go through it. Obviously, your story reminds me of even more. Thanks to you both, I remember that I am “too blessed to be stressed.”

I have type 1 and my daughter was born 2 hours and 26 minutes after Mother’s Day in 1991. I will celebrate her 20th birthday with her this year on Friday, May 13th. My partner, Jayne, also has type 1 (for 48 years!). We will celebrate our 13th anniversary this Month too. My daughter’s father has cerebral palsy. Emily was his second child. His son will be 29 this year. My mother died when she was 66.

I have a lot to mourn, but also a lot to celebrate.

Lisa - so sorry for your loss.

Yes happy Mothers Day to all the mothers here. I do not know what it is like to be a mother but I have heard about it. It is a hard thing to be. You all deserve awards hugs prayers. Keep up the great work!!! Sorry the you lost your daughter your gift.

Thank You Manny. I don’t have any sound at this minute but I can read lips. I thank you alot for the Mother’s Day greeting. We also have a "Decoration Day where my mom is buried and a Family reunion on that day at my g-mother’s. It makes the day doubly special for me. I have my daughter’s and g-kids to give me a Mother’s Day present and give one to my g-mother too. Plus I get to see all my long lost family member’s too. It just makes the day one of the best in the year for me!

Receive a VERY BIG HUG. Your princess is with you… you know it.

May you have a blessed mother’s day.

OF COURSE!!! My mom will continue to call me “nene” (baby) although I am already 38! :stuck_out_tongue:

You can read lips? That is so cool!!! Well, you know then that I was saying “Happy Mother’s Day to Doris D!” :wink:

Happy Mother’s Day, Doris! Big hug.

She was beautiful! And thank you for taking care of this precious gift of human life, even if it was only for a short time. And happy Mother’s Day, because you are still, every ounce, a mother! :slight_smile:

LOL! No really I have (or had) a cousin who had a hearing problem and taught me how to do it when we were kids and it’s just stuck with me all these years.

Thanks Manny!

Belive it or now I can also talk with my hands.

Thank you Manny, how sweet :slight_smile: My daughter, who will be 30 on 5/26, and son in law are my ‘kids’ and always will be.

Happy Mothers Day!!!

We moms make the world go around!!! Cheers!

Thank You,

Thanks, Manny! I have two boys who are busy pushing my buttons frequently, and it’s always special to receive a Mother’s Day greeting from someone who isn’t related to you.

Dear Manny, thanks for the shout out to us mother’s. We raise children and that’s not easy. For those of us that have a type 1 child (or any condition, ie. Lisa-sorry for your loss) that could potentially do him/her harm if its not managed well (24/7) takes lots of strength. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank YOU for building such a wonderful online resource and community. TuD members have helped give me insight to all things “D”. Support, because sometimes even your closest family and friends don’t always get it. As many times I’ve explained T1, my dad told me the other day I shouldn’t have gave my son so much sugary foods, as if that caused T1 and my in-laws just think his care doesn’t have to be as invovled as I make it. TuD has also helped us decide what pump (before I was a member) and cgm we wanted. TuD has showed us that diabetes is really under our control, the endos just look at the big picture. You make your management what you want, the tools and resources are available now that just werent there in the past, I’m all for using them.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and soon to be one’s too!
