Why should we celebrate Mother’s Day?

Imagine a day without your Mother. How would it be? Easy or hard? Sad or happy?. Well, if asked to me, it would have been really very SAD. Our life is filled with relationships and one such is the special bond between a Child and a Mother. “Mother” is a byword for “love”. From school to college to professional accomplishments she stays by her child’s side at every moment of glory and agony. Her smile to her child is more important than her tears.

The “Mother’s Day” concept was first adopted by an American Citizen, ANNA JARVIS in 1908. She held a campaign to make the “Mother’s Day” a recognised holiday in US. Later in 1914, the US government declared second Sunday of May as the National Holiday. Anna is also known as the founder of Mother’s Day.

“A mother is she who can take the place of  all others but whose place no one else can take” – ANNA

Motherhood is a beautiful blessing, but it certainly has its challenges. One such mom which comes to our mind is Rani Laxmi Bai. She is the most fearless and rebellious queen who fought against British army. She tied her son to her back and fought bravely with two swords. Rani Laxmi Bai lost to British soldiers but she will, forever remain an inspiration.

Mother’s Day is celebrated differently by different people. Some gift them cards, flowers, perfume and cakes. And why do we celebrate it? It’s because she is the one who guides you throughout your life, she is the one who sacrifies her needs for you, she brings the family together, she is happy when you are happy, last but not the least she acts as a backbone for your success. But one question that each of us should ask ourselves on this Mother’s day: is one day really enough to honor the person who is responsible for your existence? Is it just one day we think about our Mom, in a year ?

It’s certainly not.

Rather than thinking one day about your Mom, let’s turn each day into Mother’s Day.
