Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. It complements similar celebrations honoring family members, such as Father’s Day, Siblings Day, and Grandparents Day.
“It may be possible to gild pure gold, but who can make his mother more beautiful?”
~ Mahatma Gandhi was an Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British colonial rule.
I must admit, I have not always enjoyed a good relationship with my Mother. As a sensitive child, my traditional Catholic mother just wasn’t sure what to do with me during my tearful younger years.
Fast forward to today, and I enjoy a good relationship with my mom. She is happy to be in my life and I enjoy spending time with her.
Since she is in her 90s, her ability to interface with the world is limited. I am sure that has impacted our relationship now from where it was in the past!
Regardless of your circumstances, I hope you are able to spend Mother’s Day with either your Mother or your children.
One last quote about Mothers and Mother’s Day:
“God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.”
~ Rudyard Kipling was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist.
