Mother’s Day is an event that is celebrated to honour, love and respect our mothers globally. It is usually celebrated on the second Sunday of the month May. Although in many countries it is celebrated in Ferbruary, March and April as well.
A Mother is that woman who gives birth to us, raises us, listens to us, smiles at us and tells us that it is okay every time there is something wrong; gives us breakfast, makes dinner for us, listens to us when we yell at her telling her that we want something better to eat, pats our backs when we don’t get the first place in our class and tells us that we did great anyway, buys good clothes for us. In short she is always there for us and wants what is best for us because she knows us more than anyone else in this world.
Without moms we would be nothing. She is our best friend when we need one. She is a good listener when we need someone to talk to. She has our back when other people stab it. She is one in a million.
A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people,
promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan
To mothers all over the world: Happy Mother’s Day! You deserve not just one day but all 365 days of our lives. Because you dedicate yours to your children.
To mothers all over the world: May you all smile because your children give you reasons to. Just like you give us a reason to smile each time we look at you and are relieved that you are there.
To mothers all over the world: Thank you.
