OUR VOICE: Moms, it's your day

Adjust Comment Print

It's the time to thank mothers for all their hardships and sacrifices that they have been through to keep the family together happily.

My mom lived her a year ago or so in the nursing home. She said, "Make sure you wear clean underwear in case you are in an accident". Not something overly clever, like "MOM, You're my favorite palindrome". "Love for my mom is an action".

Ask anyone, no matter how young or old, who has lost their mother what their life is like without her. They will remind her of how attractive she is both inside and out and are pretty much a standard on Mother's Day.

Many people will pull from their memories of their mom today to make that Mother's Day card seem extra special.

Unless you're 24 and moved back after college and you don't give it to her until Monday. "After all, you can do them tomorrow!" She was so effective in promoting the idea that President Woodrow Wilson made Mother's Day an official USA holiday in 1914. She'll really cherish it.

If you are not good at writing down your feeling then you can go for other options as well. We will definitely suggest making that last minute call to a florist and arranging for some of the most handsome flowers which is bound to make your mom feel lovely.

Mothers are special. There's just no other way to say it, whether it's your own mother you are talking about or, for the dads out there, the mother of your children. But there's always a part of her heart that misses who you were. And love? Love always carries on.

Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct....

To the original Kool-Aid mom.

We hear about a mother's "unconditional love". She is anxious of where you are and when will you be back.

Mom would often be humming or singing as she made dinner, an expression of her great joy of being in the kitchen and the love she had for all of us. So get the mother in your life a little piece of jewelry. To me, you're just the best mom ever. Anna Jarvis, who established Mother's Day more than 100 years ago as a time to honor one's mother for all they've done, was horrified when her creation became a commercial success. All around the world, it will be a treat from sons & daughters to their mothers. That is what Mother's Day is all about.

On Mother's day or any day take lots of time and thought for the Moms in your life, while you have the chance. Focus on something positive about your mom and go from there. Whenever I was down, you were always there to comfort me.
