My mom is a very special strong lady and made me the strong mom I am today - love her to bits. She is 82 and still loves travelling.

Mum is very special; she isn't my birth mum, she's my grandma, but she loved me like her own children. Now she's old and frail, recovering from a stroke.

My mom is just amazing, the past three years have been so hard for her. I almost lost my life after having a baby, she was there 24/7 for all of us. looked after my seven children, including my new born baby. Then my sister got breast cancer again she was there for my sister 24/7.

My mom, Gillian Coutts is so special to me in many ways, such an inspiration to others but never to herself. She had no mom this Mother's Day, only flowers, a garden, and a message to her mom in heaven. We love her loads and just want to tell her how special she is xxx

Me and my mummy. I have chicken pox and even though I'm moody and spotty she still loves me very much! (Even if she does put cold calamine cream on me - I don't like that at all and I run away). Lacey Cooke (me) and my mummy Mary Cooke. I've already eaten the chocolates I have given to her, yummy!

I love my mom so much she is just the best for donating her kidney to my husband as he needs a transplant
