Mother’s Day is coming! It’s the second Sunday in May. Have you had any idea to celebrate this occasion, to show your gratefulness to your beloved mother? Hope you have… Now let’s discover the real meaning of Mother’s Day.

To understand Mother’s Day and what it really means, you need to understand the person in your life called ‘Mother’. Mother is the one who nurtures you in her womb for nine months and brings you forth to enjoy the supreme blessing on earth, that is, Life. Mother is the one who guides you through your infancy and turns the soft, helpless creature to the powerful and successful YOU. She is the guardian angel protecting you and supporting you, feeling for you and serving you silently always with a smile on her face. She prides herself watching you grow and provides you a shoulder to cry on whenever you need. She is every child’s best friend.

For a child, every single day should be the Mother’s Day. The essence of the meaning of Mother’s Day is in the fact that we should try to make this day every year a memorable one for your mother. She should cherish the special feeling of this day and the intensity of that feeling should last for the lifetime.

This is the day to stop, remember, and pray for that special person in our life, without whom we would not have been, what we are today; a day to prove that all her efforts, towards making us a complete person, have been worthwhile and make her feel proud for us. In the broader sense of the term, Mother’s Day is a day to be grateful to God for being so kind as to bless us with an angel in the form of Mother.
