Moms don't need materialistic things; not another crockery set, not another sparkling jewelry set. When I call and ask, "Mom, what do you like most in this world?" she answers quickly, "You!" So, maybe we need to focus on what to tell her, rather than what to give her. Go, find some time outta your busy schedule, make that phone call, and tell your mom how much you love and miss her, before it is too late.
Nothing hurts more than the pain caused by losing a loved one; the love is there forever though, we lose them only from the physical plane, because where love exists there can be no loss. Remembering someone you have lost should not get tears in your eyes, but smiles, that they are in a better place than us. That is Heaven (if you believe in it).
Whether you took Mom's lectures to heart as a child or are just realizing the wisdom in her words, the calming comfort from mom's advice is one of a kind, and these may echo in your minds for forever. Those "mom catch phrases" that make your life easier, those "You can't start the day on an empty stomach" instructions, those were actually sweet and caring! And in fact you miss all these now. You miss your mom!
It's time to tell her that you miss her, and that you care. She may not be physically present with you, but she can always hear what you say. Refer these quotes to get those words, in case you're stammering (with nervousness).

I cannot forget my mother. She is my bridge. When I needed to get across, she steadied herself long enough for me to run across safely.
― Renita Weems
You were my home, Mother. I had no home but you.
― Janet Fitch, White Oleander
Mom, your death has made me realize that every single second we spent together, I wasted an opportunity to tell you how much I loved you ...

― Margaret Sanger
"Help me, Mother," Peggy said, and tears came to her eyes as they always did when she spoke to her, because she would never get over the emptiness of a world that no longer held her mother.
― Peggielene Bartels and Eleanor Herman
Out of the corner of one eye, I could see my mother. Out of the corner of the other eye, I could see her shadow on the wall, cast there by the lamp-light. It was a big and solid shadow, and it looked so much like my mother that I became frightened. For I could not be sure whether for the rest of my life I would be able to tell when it was really my mother and when it was really her shadow standing between me and the rest of the world.
― Jamaica Kincaid, Annie John
The death of a mother is the first sorrow wept without her.
I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.
― Abraham Lincoln
I'm doing okay, not great, not amazing, not horrible, just okay. And that is okay.
My mother had a slender, small body, but a large heart - a heart so large that everybody's joys found welcome in it, and hospitable accommodation.
― Mark Twain

When you were alive your presence taught me to live life in the moment without waiting for tomorrow. But after your death, your absence has taught me to live life like there is no tomorrow. I miss you.
Had I known that destiny always takes away people you love the most, I would have pretended to hate you endlessly. I miss you mommy.
If I had the chance to meet you for one last time I would just ask you to hug me as tightly as you can, rest my head on your shoulders... and cry till my tears run dry. I miss you mom.
A photograph never grows old. You and I change, people change all through the months and years, but a photograph always remains the same. How nice to look at a photograph of mother or father taken many years ago. You see them as you remember them. But as people live on, they change completely. That is why I think a photograph can be kind.
― Albert Einstein
Your memories take me back to the time when I used to come back home crying from school. You always gave me a hug and say 'Don't worry everything will be alright' Now you are no more but your words have empowered me to become the person that I am today. Mom, I love you and I miss you.
I wish I had the power to take back every pain, worry and hurt that I ever gave you. I wish that I could just undo, all the moments that made you blue. I miss you mom.
I hate visiting your grave because the words on your epitaph don't do justice to the amazing person that you were. I miss you.
I miss the warmth of your gentle hug and the love I felt when my arms were wrapped around you. I miss seeing your beautiful smile and the sound of your voice saying my name. I miss hearing you say, "I love you," and me saying, "I love you" in return.
― Millie P. Lorenz
A mother's love's a blessing, no matter where you roam
Keep her while she's living, you'll miss her when she's gone
Love her as in childhood, though feeble, old and grey
For you'll never miss a mother's love, till she's buried beneath the clay.
― Thomas P. Keenan

I thought that I would miss you so, and never find my way.
And then I heard the angel say "She's with you every day."

reminding you of the love you shared, and the peace she's finally found."
Life has to end, she said. Love doesn't.
― Mitch Albom
I miss having you share the feelings that linger deep within my soul; there is emptiness there where you once were. I miss you saying..."this is my daughter" and the look of pride you held with each word spoken.

Mourning was just another word in the dictionary. But after your death, it has become a way of life for me.
Now I know why you always asked me to be strong... because you know that one day I would need the strength to bear your loss. I miss you mom.
