Happy Mother’s Day to the gorgeous mothers out there.
May 8 is a Sunday and everybody can dedicate their precious time to their incredible moms, who are ‘valuable beyond estimation’. This Mother’s day, put your phones aside and talk to your mothers, take them out on a lovely day out and pour them with all the love and blessings they deserve.
When we were kids, our moms took care of us more than themselves. She fed her children and family members first and then sat on the dining table to eat. She prepared her children’s school bags, ironed their school dresses and slept, after the whole family used to fall asleep. She dedicated whole her life to her children and family.
Now is the time for the children to become responsible and pay attention towards their mothers, their choices, their preferences, their likes, dislikes and most importantly their health. This mother’s day, take a pledge to love your mothers unconditionally.
Mother’s Day Significance and Importance
The first ever Mother’s Day was celebrated in the United States when a woman called Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother before she died. In 1908, three years after her death, Jarvis took the initiative and arranged a memorial at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in West Virginia.
Despite the fact that her mother was unable to attend the event, she still sent a telegram to innumerable guests, emphasizing on the significance of this day. “The person who has done more for you than anybody else in the world,” she believed.
Mother’s Day honors each mother’s immense contribution into the lives of her children and family members, from loving them unconditionally, to work towards manifesting their dreams into reality; a mother’s contributions are frequently forgotten. Furthermore, our mothers rarely do have time to care for themselves or think about themselves. The reason being, their heart is as big as an ocean to pour all the love on their families while not even thinking of their ebbs and flows; also, the patriarchal society has always taught them to not take any time off when it comes to self-care. Their first concern has always been their children and families. Things, however, should change for better. So, on Mother’s Day, let us thank our mothers for their invaluable time, sacrifices and love. It should also be taken care of that, motherly affection can come from any person who genuinely cares for us. Therefore, this is a day to honor all such individuals who have cared for us.
Mother’s Day History
Mother’s Day is being celebrated since 1907, when Anna Jarvis hosted a worship service in honor of mothers at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia. This worship service was hosted by her, after the death of her lovely mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis in 1905. Anna Jarvis shared her great opinion for Mother’s Day to be recognized as a national holiday. The inaugural Mother’s Day was then celebrated two years later. It was made a national holiday by US President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. While Mother’s Day is observed on the second Sunday of May in India, it is celebrated on different days in different countries. Anna Jarvis is probably one of the best examples of great daughters of the world and most generous human beings. It is because of her that, out of 365 busy days the whole world has got a day to acknowledge incredible sacrifices of their mothers.
