A few days before Mother's Day, 20-year-old Jessica Lynn Lee got into an argument with her mother about caring for Lee's baby and took off. It was a familiar, if infrequent, scene between them. They would fight over small stuff - using the computer, following house rules - and Lee would leave. She always came home to Brooklyn Park a few days later, though, sometimes spending the night in the woods near her house or with whomever she met along the way, while her mother cared for infant Maygan.

You still have time to plan a Mother's Day brunch. But you might not have to bother. According to a new survey, your mother might prefer to make the plans herself. The survey, published by Open Table Inc., says that 65 percent of surveyed mothers intend to make Mother's Day reservations themselves. Fifty-eight percent of the Open Table members surveyed said they were planning to dine out for brunch on Mother's Day, but a surprising 39 percent said they were going out for dinner instead and about 25 percent said they'd be going out for more than one meal.

Happy  Mother's Day  dear readers, If you are a mom or a grandmother, you hopefully will celebrate Sunday surrounded by loved ones. Mother's Day  is the single most popular day to dine out - how about a Havre de Grace restaurant - or make long-distance telephone calls. It is the third most popular holiday to send greeting cards. Anna Jarvis, a 45-year-old Philadelphian spinster and insurance clerk, was inspired to create Mother's Day after the death of her mother. With the financial backing by Philadelphia department store tycoon, John Wanamaker in 1907, Anna dedicated her life to fulfill her mother's dream of a national holiday to honor mothers everywhere.

In honor of Mother's Day, I thought I would devote a column to famous, exceptional mothers of the non-profit world: charitable people like Mother Teresa, Eleanor Roosevelt -- Imelda Marcos. To get a feel for the topic, I started with the best source on motherhood I know."Hi, Mom. How're ya doin?" I asked stupidly. After forty-three years, I should know better than to start with a leading question like that. "What's the use complaining?" she started out, followed by detailed, blow-by-blow complaints ranging from her visit to her doctor to the fight she had with her New York City landlord ("He should only drop dead from the aggravation he gives me")

Mother's Day is here. It's time for the cards and flowers we say we don't care about -- although our hearts ache when our children forget to send them -- and if we're lucky, for a half-cooked, half-cold breakfast in bed that will taste better than any chef's creation because it was prepared by small hands and spiced with love.On this day, I hope that each of you allows yourself to bask in the love and attention that comes your way and that, for a change, you spend the entire day patting yourself on the back for what you do right, instead of kicking yourself for the mistakes you make.

Breakfast in bed is a good way to honor some women on Mother's Day, but it's not for your very hip mom. For her you want something that says not only "I love you" but also "ooh la la! I hope I have as much moxie as you do when I'm a parent." That's asking a lot of a Mother's Day gift, we know. What your mom needs are some inexpensive, or not so inexpensive, luxuries that she probably wouldn't buy for herself. The traditional ones (a box of chocolates, a pretty bed jacket) you can probably figure out yourself.

Just in time for Mother's Day, your article on the mother of the young man who inexplicably committed suicide ("Dulaney graduate's mother will accept his college diploma from Temple," May 9) was a clear and strong wake up call to all mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and friends of those suffering from depression or other problems. My own 25-year-old son from Parkville, successful on the outside, committed suicide last month, having said nothing to show he felt so burdened. Suicide needs to be rejected and spoken of openly in the public square.

It was an embarrassment of riches for me this Mother's Day, I'm not going to lie. All I really wanted was to spend time with my husband and our sons -- and to get a picture of me with the boys. I take the vast majority of the pictures in our household, but I don't appear in that many of them. I got all of that and more, including waffles for breakfast, my favorite Thai food for dinner, farmer's market cupcakes for dessert, a card on whose envelope my 3-year-old wrote "Mommy" all by himself.

We get busy. We have work to do. We have long days crowded with chores and commitments, and we get caught up in things that seem in the moment so important - a project, a decision, a purchase, a deadline. And this is your life, and it moves faster than you expected it would. Before you know it, you're not a kid anymore; your parents are gone and you're the only adult in the room. Everyone experiences this differently, and at different times. Some of you might have lost a parent when you were teenagers, or in your 20s, or 30s. Or maybe you're in your 50s now and just getting used to the absence of your mother or father, or a beloved aunt or grandparents - the elders you thought would be around forever.

Today is Mother's Day, and millions of kids across the country will spend time celebrating that irreplaceable figure in their lives. Many of these mothers, despite surmounting challenges, manage to support and serve as the backbone of their families. Today, one in four American children are being raised by a single parent. Forty years ago, that figure was one in ten. While some of these households are led by fathers, the lion's share is, and has been, mothers. These women are an essential link to the health and prosperity of the next generation.

Job search Starting pay, benefits rising Job-search times are shortening, while starting salaries and other benefits are on the rise, according to a prominent outsourcing-and-research company. The average job search this year is taking less than three months, compared with four months in the fall of 2004, according to Challenger, Gray & Christmas. "The labor market is starting to look more and more like the one we experienced in the late 1990s," said CEO John Challenger. "Companies are undoubtedly reluctant to increase their costs, but it has become necessary to boost salaries and special benefits in order to attract and retain the top talent."

IN THE days before Mother's Day, the country got some good news: Teen birthrates have continued a downward trend that began in 1991.The decline is across the board, but it is most pronounced among African-Americans, with the rate of births in that group reaching its lowest recorded level.Given the alarms raised about teen pregnancy and childbirth since rates began a sharp climb in the mid-1980s, the historical perspective might surprise many people: The '80s teen birthrates that created a social crisis were substantially lower than such rates in the 1950s and '60s.

This Mother's Day, I'd like to reflect on one of my most spectacular maternal flops, executed just last weekend, on the occasion of my 8-year-old daughter's near-First Communion. Anna woke up and told me her throat was sore. That's just pollen, I assured her. Later, she said she felt like she was going to throw up. Nerves, I said. She was scheduled to do a reading at the service. I got her into the lovely white eyelet dress and veil my mom had sewn and sent her downstairs, where oohing and aahing from an aunt and two sets of grandparents seemed to cure all that ailed her. At the church, she filed in just fine with all the other children.
