Here, in the USA, we celebrate Mother’s Day once a year! It falls on a Sunday and it happens to be tomorrow. I do not know how many other nations celebrate their mothers – let me know in the comments.
It was awkward for me, as a child, to celebrate my mom. I loved her and wanted to give her gifts. But, she was a widow. There was no father figure in our home and no one to go to to ask for money to buy her something. I had to ask her, the very person you are buying for or making a gift for. I think I did my best for a young child.
I want to thank my mom (who passed in 2001) for doing her best. She had it hard as a child, herself. She had it hard being left to raise three children without her husband. She worked and provided well for us. Thank you Mom.
Here is a great video honoring mothers of all sorts for their sacrifice and giving to their children. And to the mother’s who maybe you felt abandoned by or whatever the case may be – I will not justify their choices – but in reality, we do not know what they were going through on the inside, or the things they were told and taught by others. As hard as it may be, choose to move on. Don’t waste years of your life wishing it was better. You may be a mom or a dad someday and your kids will need you to be present and well.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms!

In Ireland and the UK Mother’s Day is on Mothering Sunday which is a church holiday on the 4th Sunday in Lent. Mothering Sunday doesn’t have anything to do with celebrating motherhood (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mothering_Sunday). Mother’s Day, on the other hand, is celebrated here in the same sorts of ways as in the US. HTH
Thank you Sarah. Yes, very interesting! 😀
