Mother's Day 2014 is celebrated around the world on the second Sunday of May and this year it falls on 14 May.
I know the world is not flawless and many have had or now have issues with their mothers.
"Back in 2006, what I asked my daughter for Mother's Day was a state title".
There were 888,357 people employed in 74,589 day care centers in 2015 in the U.S. Many working mothers depend on day care centers to help them manage their career/parenting responsibiltiies. She said she raised her son to not celebrate the day, believing it puts unrealistic pressure on mothers.
Julia Ward Howe, a Boston poet, pacifist, suffragist and author of the lyrics to the "Battle Hymn of the Republic", also has been credited with suggesting a "mother's day", as she organized a day encouraging mothers to rally for peace about 130 years ago.
Sunday will be my fifth Mother's Day without my Max. Anna Maria donated 500 white carnations for all those who attended.
If Sunday is a hard day for you, know you are not alone. As I was reading to her that day I took a chance and said something about God's love in Jesus, which I've not done much before.
Most mothers just want to spend quality time with their kids on Mother's Day and there is nothing better than making a memory together. They are still moms to me and always will be. Mothers are undoubtedly one of the best creations of God. I was her first child, her first "love", her first bittersweet moment, and her first AMBER alert! You will always be the girl, in my life for all times. It was not uncommon for my mom to call me home for dinner from our back porch - "Richard!" - which I could hear from four blocks away where my friends and I were playing some game or just hanging out. Over time, the day was expanded to include others, such as grandmothers and aunts, who also play important mothering roles in our families. Mothers Day is celebrated mainly in India, Canada, U.S.A, Australia and some other countries. And I love her too. Her proposal to make it holiday was rejected. It may come as a shock, but none of them mentioned flowers or chocolates.
Nothing touches one's soul quite like a mother's love. Buy her some snacks and maybe a movie and relax with her.
If your mother is gone but your father is not, go to see him and talk about your mother. While it is near impossible to compensate a mother for the job she does, it is a start to acknowledge their selfless giving.style="text-align: center;"
