AirTalk asks: For those without a mom, how do you celebrate Mother’s day?

LIVERPOOL, UNITED KINGDOM - MARCH 23:  A group of mothers feed their children in Sefton Park, on the day that Britain's Chancellor George Osbourne delivers his annual budget on March 23, 2011 in Liverpool, United Kingdom. The Chancellor will implement further measures to tackle the United Kingdom's deficit when he presents the budget to Parliament. The UK Consumer Prices Index (CPI) annual rate of inflation has risen to 4.4%, the highest since October 2008, increasing pressure on the Bank of England to raise interest rates and slow inflation.

Mother’s Day usually brings up images of flowers, brunch and pastel colored greeting cards.

But for those who don’t have a mother, this time of year can stir up mixed feelings. Visiting a grave, sharing memories of her with loved ones, or starting new traditions with your own kids can beways to cope. There are also people who don’t have a “mom” in the traditional sense, and a step-parent, older sibling or family friend has stepped in to fill that role.

For people who don’t have a mom this Mother’s Day, how do you celebrate? If she’s passed away, do you still have a tradition of celebrating her life? Or in her absence, how has someone else stepped in to fill the role of mom?
