    I love Out of Milk, but I love my mom even more because she’s always supported me throughout all this crazy start-up stuff and checks up on how Out of Milk is doing every day.

  2. My mom is awesome because she was a stay at home for the first 8 years of my life, and then when my dad left her, in her best effort to support me, she joined the Navy at age 28-a full 10 years older than most of her brethren at the time. She was always a strong example of what a woman can do-her job in the Navy was an aviation structural mechanic…I was always brought up to be capable and know that I can do anything I want and anything I set my mind to. She’s still proving to be a shining example as a disabled vet who is going back to college in her 50s!

  3. I love Out of Milk, but I love my mom even more because she has always been there for me. When everything went wrong in life, she was there. Through all the fights with my three brothers, she was there. Even though I made her cry many, many times, she was there. But my mom was there for more than just me… she was a nurse. She was there for hundreds of her patients and their families. My mom is the best! She even teaches Sunday School. I love my mom.

    I love Out of Milk, but I love my mother even more because she has become my mentor and my student in life. My mother taught me a lot of about life, love, and money when I was growing up. However, she never had a lot of time to argue with the way things are (the status quo). I, on the other hand, argue for Earth (environmental right vs. wrong), argue for Religion (freedom of and freedom thinker), argue for Nutrition (Primal lifestyle), argue about education (I’m a teacher), and constantly discuss these new ideas with my mother. She almost never agrees with me at first, but always gives me her ear. Sometimes, I even change her mind about some topics. She is my best friend in a lot of ways, even though we are polar opposites. She loves structure, I love chaos. She loves cool weather, I love summer. She loves sunsets, I love sunrises. However, the one thing we agree on in that we love each other.

    I love Out of Milk, but I love my mother even more because she thinks I’m cool and she wears a secret toe ring. She didn’t invent sporks or win the Nobel prize, but she kicks a$$ at being my mom. What more can I ask? Growing up to be like her is A-OK with me (not sure my boyfriend feels the same…:P).

    P.S. My mom is always “out of milk” cuz she’s lactose intolerant!

    I love Out of Milk but I love my mom way more. A few weeks after I was born my mom found out my dad had cheated on her and had a child with the other woman. My mom had married him her senior year of high school, he was all she knew. So, when I was six weeks old my mom left my dad, she put me and my older siblings, herself on a plane and moved from Michgan to Tennessee. When I was two she got her LPN and started working in a nursing home. My dad remarried( not to the lady he cheated with), my mom didn’t have time to date. She was a single mother of three kids. I am 27 now, and my mom still has never dated after my dad. She spent all her free time with her kids and now her six grandkids. She is an amazing mother and awesome nana. I am so happy she is my mother.

    My Mother has been amazing. She was a divorced, single mother when divorce was looked down upon. She had to deal with an ex-husband (my father) that didn’t pay child support and the law at the time was not on her side either. I was no easy teenager to raise, but she did it, loving me all the way through. She is my biggest fan and no matter how much I don’t deserve it, she is proud of me. She was hit by a car when she was 3 and had to learn how to walk again after being in a body cast. When I was 3, she was hit by a drunk driver and once again, had to learn how to walk again after being in a body cast, not to mention that she was crippled for many years (until recent technology was able to fix that). She had a brain aneurysm that ruptured and her neurosurgeon (from Emory) said that only 1 in 5 survive and of those only 1 in 5 survive without after effects. She has amazingly pulled through all of that, and yet still cares for everyone else. Sadly, our closeness will not last much longer. She has dementia now and is steadily declining. I am an only child and when she goes, even though I’m 44, I will feel like an orphan. For now though, we are enjoying our time together. It is precious.

      Sorry, I forgot to add the I love Out of Milk. I was just so caught up in my mother! Since I cannot edit it, hopefully you’ll accept it. I do love Out of Milk by the way. I really do!

    I love Out of Milk, but I love my mom even more because there is no other mother like her. She is giving and kind and loving, and she is firm and consistent and has good healthy boundaries. The hardest thing she ever did was tough love me when I was in my active addiction. She changed the locks, the phone numbers, put my stuff on the porch and stamped my mail “return to sender”. She cried herself to sleep every night and prayed for me every second. There is no way I can ever make up to her the two years of anguish I put her through, I can only live my life today to honor God and her and to stay clean and sober. Help me shower her with a Mother’s Day that does justice to her wonderfulness. Thank You OUT OF MILK.

    I love out of milk but I love my mom better because she dedicated her hole life to me and four other siblings.She was married to my father for thirty plus years but he never helped out .He was hardly ever there for her or us for that matter. While we were small children she took in ironing from others to help put food on the table.I can remember my mom crying because she only had one potato and five small children to feed.My youngest brother was a todler and the rest of us went to school and got fed that day.The baby got the potato and we were fine with that.I remember him crying and pulling on my moms dress while she was frying it for him.She was so heart broken.She finally divorced my father after years of abuse and we all were older.She married her child hood sweetheart and had a very good life .He became very sick with cancer and my mom cared for him at home until the day he passed.My mom became very sickwith 104 fever and we could not get it under control.My sister and I decided to take her to the ER.They did some blood work and came back to tell us she had Lukemia.They atmitted her and did more test and called all of us five children in to tell us she only had two weeks to live.What devestation.It was time for her to enjoy her life.She lived six months with her five children by her side every minute.God gave us this extra time to say our goodbyes and what a blessing that was.She passed December a year ago.I lost my best and dearest friend that day.I know the moms are suppose to be alive but I could not pass up this chance to say how special my mom was.R.I.P. Jaqualine (Jackie) Rogers.I love and miss you my precious mother. I’ll see you again one day.Your daughter Vickie…

    I love Out of Milk, but I love my mom even more: She worked 7 days a week all day and never took a vacation at a restaurant to make sure that my brother and I never went without needs.

  11. “I love Out of Milk, but I love my mom even more because she has sacrificed and loved me and my brothers selflessly. When I was little she was there when I needed her, she played with me and even made real play food for my brother and I… when I became a teen she talked to me about what I was going to face in life now and prepared me for it…when I had to leave my country to go study abroad she wrote long letters every month… faxed me notes that told me that she was thinking about me and send me packages with things that I missed most… now I understand the sacrifice that it must have been for her to do all those things. Then when I became a mom myself she has been my adviser and peer letting me know that I am doing great with my son and that she is always a call away for advice or just to talk. I cannot imagine my life without her and without her experiences… it has helped me navigate thru life and I know that without a doubt…she really loves me more than anyone.

    I love Out of Milk, but I love my mother more for the same reasons most people love their mothers – support, love, home cooking, etc. But above all else I love my mother for how she lives her life. Whether it be feeding the homeless, taking in needy kids, or volutneering at a local soup kitching, my mother has always dedicated her life to not only helping her own children (which she does plenty of bc we are fairly needy boys) but to serving others. She has taught me more about life and how to treat others in her actions than she ever could with her words. I am the man I am today because of the woman my mother has been her entire life – and for that I am eternally grateful. Love you mom.

    Your favorite and best son,
    Adam

    “I love Out of Milk, but I love my mom even more because she is my shoulder to lean on when my child with Autism has problems & I am at a loss on how to help him. She listens to me talk and allows me the chance to figure out how to help him on my own.

  15. Jim permalink

    I love Out of Milk, but I love my mom even more because she would take me out of school to go shopping when she saw something I would like. She would send me awesome care packages when I was in college. She still calls me to meet her to go shopping. I’m her baby.
