Pearls of Wisdom ~ May ’15
Mother’s Day is a modern celebration honoring one’s own mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the infl uence 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 and Siblings Day.
The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early 20th century; it is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a celebration of the mother church, not motherhood). Despite this, in some countries Mother’s Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.
Image of a Mom
You gave me life.
You encourage me to be the best.
You hold me close when I cry.
Your face lights up like a Christmas tree when I arrive.
Your heart is an endless fl ow of love.
You unconditionally accept me for who I am.
You never forget my birthday.
Your love touches the beggar on the street.
You make me chicken soup when I am sick.
Your voice is like a Hymn and a prayer.
I know my name is safe in your mouth.
You are my best friend.
I love you Mom more than words can say on this Special Day, Mother’s Day!
May each of your days be as blessed as mine are and all because of you.
