Although the dates may differ all around the world, there is a distinct day on the calendar for our mothers, no matter where we live at. The second Saturday of May is celebrated as Mother’s Day at my hometown and many other places in the world.
While the origin of Mother’s Day goes back to the era of ancient Greek and Romans, the roots of this meaningful day can also be be traced in UK’s Mothering Sundays or in the pioneering women of US, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis. (You can click here if you want more detailed information.)
Even though I am a person who strongly believes that no day is sufficient enough to express our gratitude for our mothers, it is a nice thing to appreciate all those sacrifices they have done for us and spend this beautiful day with our beautiful mothers.
It is generic I know, but it is the reality. It’s true that we don’t know the values of things we have, until we loose them forever. Hug your mothers strongly, buy them flowers, take them to a dinner. No matter what you do, make them smile while you can.
At the end of the day, you will see that a smile of a mother is worth the whole world. I hope you’ll understand this before it is to late and you’ll never feel a bitter sense of regret.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the beautiful mothers, grandmothers, and aunts all over the world!
