Mother’s Day is almost here. This is the time when we take a moment to really appreciate our Mothers. We do love them but how often do we honor and show them with special tokens that we really care.
We could never repay our Mothers for all they have sacrificed for us. My Mother is priceless. Many people will be sad on Mother’s day, but remember that she lives on in our hearts.
Usually on Mother’s Day, there is a barbecue at our house for all the Mothers in our family. Some Mother’s appreciate gifts while others are contented with being feted on Mother’s Day.
Mother’s Day is celebrated on different days in other countries depending on the origination of Mother’s Day. Originally, the US copied the UK where Mother’s Day was a call to unite Mother’s against war. Now they are totally different in that the US celebrate Mother’s day on the second Sunday in May and is an occasion to celebrate Mothers and Motherhood. In the UK, Mother’s Day is related to the Church. The Mother Church is visited by all and is a means for Children and their Mother to unite.
Mother’s Day has now been copied from the US by several other nations. It now represents a Day where we celebrate with our Mothers by taking them out to restaurants, sending them flowers, buying them special gifts or, like us, just having them over for a barbecue.
