What Does Mother’s Day Mean To You?

What does Mother’s Day mean to you? Mother’s Day has always been a special occasion for me. Even before I became a mother, I always thought of Mother’s Day as the one special day where I could make my wonderful Mom feel appreciated and love. After reading “On Mother’s Day,” I was made to realize how different Mother’s Day is to some mothers.

I was brought to the realization that not all mothers feel the same way that I do during Mother’s Day–that in fact, “Mother’s Day can rub so much salt in the wounds of so many women.”

Reading the post made me feel grateful and blessed to have healthy and happy children who have given me the precious gift of motherhood, and to have had the opportunity of growing up with a mom who gave me nothing but sweet and glowing memories of my childhood.

To all mothers out there, whatever Mother’s Day means to you, I hope it has given you the time to see just how great and special your role is in this world.

As my little tot’s card says, there is only one mother.

Only One Mother
Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
Hundreds of lambs in the sunny weather.
Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the world wide over.

So what does Mother’s Day mean to you? I’d love to know, so leave a comment!
