Mother's Day 2017: Significance, history and everything you need to know

One of the popular names Mother Mary is addressed by her devotees is “Mother of perpetual help” Mother's Day 2017: Significance, history and everything you need to know
Freda Brock | 28 May, 2017, 20:25

There is no holiday quite like Mother's Day in my book.

Your smile brightens each day just as the morning rays shines on the hills and it's with doubt that this gives us the courage to face the new day with joy.

It would have definitely not been just sugar, spice and everything nice. The little things that deplete you really don't matter.

For those wanting and waiting for a child who has yet to come: "I know the plans I have for you", declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future".

We all have someone in our lives who are like a mother to us, and today is the ideal opportunity to show her just how much you care.

Happy Mother's Day-you're a gift from above! She was a great lady and mother to our children.

30 is the new 25 in men's tennis now
Nadal has never lost in the first round of the French Open . "I played the best player on clay three times in three tournaments. Two men in good form entering the French Open will play in the first round in a match which very well could go the distance.

Remember that you might also have a mother: set an example for your children and involve them with the way you celebrate her, even if she is no longer with you. Mothers Day is celebrated mainly in India, Canada, U.S.A, Australia and some other countries. Mother's Day is remembering the heart shaped paper that said, "I love you Mom" written in macaroni. It is nearly a sacred time when we remember with deep appreciation all the sacrifices our moms have made for us through the years - including all the prayers said on our behalf. "There are times when my mom tells me not to do certain things, but my mother-in-law would be like, "Tujhe joh karna hai, kar, baaki main sambhal lungi". Her campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. But I could do anything, you said that, and you meant that. When I've made mistakes, every decision was out of complete love for my children.

On this one occasion I brought along a devotional book to read to my mom. It runs again this year in tribute to all moms for Mother's Day.

Still, it won't be the same this year - nothing ever will be, of course, after you lose your Mom. Her presence affects us our entire life and she can't be replaced by anyone. Many people share messages and greetings with their mothers.

The Winterville Flower Shop and other local shops in our area offer lots of different options for any person at any price.

Happy Mother's Day! I love you! But, looking back, each was an expression of my Mom's love and devotion to her family. Be with her not only in worst part, but also in our happiest moments and best times of our lives.
