It's the day when we pamper them and acknowledge their presence and contribution. Mother's Day in reality is those precious first shoes, that you still keep, that your first born wore when leaving the hospital and coming home. There were two mothers who were best friends who lived on either side of my widowed dad and me.
It would have definitely not been just sugar, spice and everything nice. When was the last time you tell her that you love her? She'll appreciate you helping her out and giving her time to herself. On Mother's Day, let your mom know how important she has been to you and that she will always be important to you. I'll see them out somewhere, and their first question isn't "How are you?" it's "How's your mom?"
On May 10, 1908, Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church at Grafton in West Virginia. I make up my own Mother's Day. My mother-in-law is one special lady, and I hope she knows just how much I love her. We feel really blessed because God has created a Guardian Angel for us in the form of our mothers.
We can find our own way to recognize the mothers or mother figures in our lives.
It's said that the most powerful word in any language is "mother".

Your mom taught you how to use a spoon, she deserves more than some flowers you bought on special.
"Mom was there for me to watch her grandchildren and now is there for her great grandchildren also". Her presence affects us our entire life and she can't be replaced by anyone. (My parents divorced many years earlier.) She talked about the life she wanted for me, and although we differed on that to some extent, I know she would be proud of the person I am today. Even though you have a wife, she's not your mom.
Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you've had a baby... "I approached the idea with my husband", she said, "and together we realized that we had the space, the love, the stability and with my background working with children with disabilities, I had the experience".
Jonathan Rodgers will share the influence his mom has had on his life. She's great. She loves our five children and three grandchildren.
Other moms, known as the "working moms," sacrifice time spent at home in order to work one, sometimes two jobs to put food on their family's table.
