No one could ever replace my mother. At the same time, there have been moments when I have needed a "mother figure" for guidance & support. And I greatly appreciate the love I have been shown.

The Nike at Samothrace reminds me of my mom in all of her glory and all of her strength. Her love and victory is everlasting and not even thousands of years could destroy that. www.louvre.fr/llv/oeuvres/detail_not

I have always felt that no onee will ever replace my Mom in my life.I had one Mother and that was it.I don't want any substitutes.I get very upset if my kids call other people Mom and that is something I will never ever do.With Mother's Day coming up it is always a hard time of year for me.Still can't look at cards without crying.This year I decided to do a good deed in my Mom's honor.I have friends that are having a baby in three months(number4)so I am sending them money to get a new car seat and anything else they need.My Mom did that for me when I had my fourth child and only daughter so it is making me happy to do it instead of focusing on my sadness.

I belong to a group (not from SP) that meets in person and calls themselves Motherless Daughters. It's a group of women - all in their 20s and early 30s - who have lost their moms.

It's a great group and I love the people I've met there - they all "get" me and what I'm going through.

But sometimes I find that I'm very different than all of them. For starters, most of them have other family (fathers, aunts/uncles, etc) and I really don't.

Another difference is that many of them claim that they're looking for substitute mother figures in their lives. Some of them look to their husbands' and boyfriends' mothers (with varying degrees of success), some of them look to aunts, etc. But I find that I don't want a "substitue" and I can't imagine anyone ever being able to remotely fill the void in my life in any way (my mom and I had a ridiculously close relationship).

So, I figured I'd see how people here feel. Do people look for a substitute mother figure? Or do people feel more like I do - they want to fill their lives with people, but not necessarily in that role?
