Mother’s Day: Celebrating A Very Special Day In A Special Way
Mother’s day: Celebrating A Very Special Day In A Special Way
Mother is the most special person in our lives. She is the one who introduced us to this world. A mom is the one who bears the severe pain of labor to help us watch the sunshine of this beautiful world. Well, It’s also true that to become a mother, you don’t need to give birth to a child. I appreciate those divine souls who embraced motherhood by adopting little ones deprived of love and care as their children. To me, they are equally respectable as birth-giving mothers.
There is one more mother we are gifted with when the wedding bells ring in our life. Yes, our Mothers-in-law. I am not here today to differentiate between the two, as both are important in our lives and hold a special place in our hearts.
Her every touch makes us feel secure and safe under her umbrella of love. Many know the word “unconditional love”, but we can sense the true reflection of this word from the love and care of the mother who nurtures the kid from birth till they are independent. She gives her best to protect her child throughout her life.
Just a year back, I embraced motherhood and witnessed a complete change in my life. Life appeared more responsible and meaningful. Oh yes, not to forget that I experienced an enhancement in my level of patience.
My little one’s smile seems the prettiest in the world to me. I feel so composed when I look at him sleeping in my lap and life seems so blessed. I remember my mother’s words when she used to appear overprotective towards me. “You will understand my acts when you become a mother”… her words are so true. And, I realize it now. Being a mother introduces a whole new perspective in front of you.
Now it is our turn to show our gratitude to our Moms. Indeed, we can never compensate for the level of sacrifice they made for our upbringing. But we can make them happy by celebrating a day dedicated to our Moms. Here, I would like to add that celebrating a single day for a mother is not enough. A mother’s presence is so much in our lives that every day should be Mother’s Day for us.
Can we forget the animal mothers? No, we cannot, as they are no less than human mothers. They are equally caring, affectionate, and protective of their kids. A mother is a mother, and there is no particular definition to describe her.
History Of Mother’s Day
Anna Jarvis celebrated the special Day for Mothers in the year 1908. She established a memorial for her mother at the famous St Andrew Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Anna started campaigning to consider Mothers’ Day as a holiday in the USA.
Initially, her request got rejected. But, by mid-1911 in the US, a day was observed specially dedicated to the mothers. For honoring and showing respect to mothers, a proclamation got signed by Woodrow Wilson to celebrate the second Sunday of May Month as Mothers’ Day.
How To Make Our Mothers Happy?
Just like us, there are some dislikes of our mother. Well, by keeping that in mind, we need to plan how to gift her happiness and make her feel special on this day.
We can gift her what she loves or can be with her and make her feel safe and protected under the umbrella of kids’ love and care. In short, it’s difficult to say what will be the right way to celebrate Mother’s Day. She is one such living goddess in our lives, whose presence is a blessing.
We must ensure we take the best care of them in their hours of need and gift them a life that she cherishes to enjoy. A mother’s only gift is the love and care of her child. Let’s promise ourselves that we will take the best care of our mothers and turn each day a Mother’s Day for them.
Happy Mother’s Day To All Mothers On This Earth
