Mother’s Day, as we know it today, began in 1908 after a young woman petitioned to have it observed as a National Holiday. Her hope was to increase respect for parents and strengthen family bonds. I think she has succeeded.
Most mother and child relationships can be complicated. Each is defined by a unique blend of lifelong adoration and momentary contempt. As a child, we refuse to leave her side, but grow to resent her advice and then we later realize that she was right. It is only when we become parents that we truly understand how much she loves us. Honoring mom each year on a National Holiday encourages families to come together for a common bond – Mom.
In celebration of Mother’s Day, this list will remind you why you love your mom so much.
Mom always knows when something is wrong – even when you tell her “nothing”.
Mom nurses you back to health when you are sick.
Mom always tells you to follow your dreams.
