Every year, the second Sunday of May is celebrated as Mother’s day across the world to honour the love and care and unbreakable friendship that we share with our mother. This is the day when we take time from our busy life to surprise the lady who always managed to surprise us on our birthdays.

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
— Mother Teresa

And this is what defines motherhood!

Mother-the very word brings to our mind the images of a wonderful person in our life irrespective of their gender. Even though, we have restricted the term only to the ‘female’ gender. The infinite power to love irrespective of what the child is – is known as motherhood. Only a mother has the power of acceptance from the core of her heart. Be it by birth or by bond, a mother showers selfless love to their children.

When APJ Kalam was asked to define birthday, he said-

The Only Day In Your Life, Your Mother Smiled When You Cry 

– This quote by APJ Abdul Kalam inspires us to the core to see how selfless a mother’s love is for their child.

Needless to say, a Mother is one’s best friend and guide, the one to whom we run with our problems and they always come up with the perfect solution for us. She is the one who understands our feelings, before even we express them. It is said that with the birth of a baby, there is a new birth of a woman. She becomes a mother and her child becomes the center of attention of her life.

Mother bears a child for 9 months in her womb, which is itself a miracle. She advises in the easiest manner that we sometimes wonder what we would have done without her. She is the one running behind us to have our breakfast as we rush to college and the one to make us sleep comfortably when we just fall asleep on our study table. She is the one who shares her experiences with us and makes us understand the importance of relations in our life. No matter how old we get, we need our mother at every stage in our life.

Even though we should be thanking her every day for her dedication and contribution in our lives, we have fixed a single day to thank our mother for her sacrifices, for her love and care.

However, every year, the second Sunday of May is celebrated as Mother’s day in some parts of the world to honor the love and care and unbreakable friendship that we share with our mother. This year, May 14 is celebrated as Mother’s Day. What little we can do, is fill their every moment with joy and happiness.

Even though a mother never expects anything back from her child, but even the smallest of efforts made by us fills our mother with overwhelming joy. Give her a day off from the household chores, make her favorite dish or just write a poem and you will never be able to forget that beautiful smile on her face.

The History- 

The invention of Mother’s Day was itself a struggle faced by a mother Anna Jarvis, who persuaded a church in her hometown, Philadelphia, to hold a special church service on the anniversary of her mother’s death. The next year the governors of Florida and North Dakota issued special proclamations inspired by the service and it went national in 1914 when President Wilson made one, too. She struggled enough to save this day from commercialization by the business people who across the country figured the day could be a great way to sell the nation on flowers, cards and other tokens.  Jarvis sent violent telegrams to President Roosevelt and mostly shut herself inside her house–emerging only to hand out flyers about the evils of commercializing Mother’s Day.

Jarvis wanted mother’s day to be more of a public awareness event about the maternal mortality rate, which was 14,000 deaths a year at the time rather than the commercial holiday and that is what we have to focus on.

Netizens will know better that Facebook has also added the “Thankful” emoticon to help everyone celebrate Mother’s Day.

Instead of buying material gifts for our mothers, spend time with them and shower our love and care on them- tell them how important they are to you! Talk to her and make her feel worthy by your real efforts and not by some gift that you bought from the nearest mall because children are the anchor that hold a mother to life!

Happy Mother’s Day to all!
