Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is meant to honor and celebrate the unconditional love of a mother. It is celebrated in many countries around the world on the second Sunday of May every year. This year it falls on May 14th.

Did you know that the ancient Greeks and Romans used to celebrate festivals honouring mother goddesses such as Rhea and Cybele. ( I did not know this about them). The ancient festivals were held in the springtime and were dedicated to motherhood and fertility.

Our current tradition of celebrating Mother’s Day in the United States was designated in a proclamation by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. It declared the second Sunday of every May as Mother’s Day. Many people choose to give cards, flowers, or other heartfelt gestures to show their appreciation, affection, and gratitude for their mothers or the significant person who demonstrated mother like qualities toward them.

“The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.” 

Honoré de Balzac

Most cards contain famous quotes or sayings regarding mother’s or motherhood, however they may not confer how you really feel. The words that touch a mother’s heart the most are the words that come straight from the heart.

My mother and I were never friends and never close after I became an adults on was living in my own. I never felt like she liked me or approved of anything I ever did in my life. Even though I felt that way I still knew, in her own way, she loved me. I cannot express any heartfelt appreciation, gratitude, or love to her on this earth, but I can still remember her & try to honour her.

Wishing all the
mothers everywhere
a blessed &
Happy Mother’s Day!

One response to “Happy Mother’s Day!”

  1. Just yesterday in our church service we heard that Mother’s Day was proclaimed for the first time in 1914 in the USA 🙂. I’m sorry to read that you and your mom didn’t have a good relationship, but it’s nice to read that you still try to honour her. I’m not a mother myself, but it was lovely to talk to my mother on the phone yesterday (and to hear that the neighbour’s daughter also invited her to lunch).
