A little poem dedicated to my Mommy and to all the wonderful mommies out there, on this special day of Mother’s day. You guys rock 🤘🤩😎💝
She is all things beautiful and wonderful.
Her love, care and concern makes my life meaningful.
She has not just given birth to me, but also gifted me several lives.
She has aced each role, whether daughter, mother or wife.
She has picked me up from rock bottom and nurtured me back to health.
Her resilience and unconditional love is my greatest wealth.
Her courage to face life’s adversities gives me strength,
To fight the challenges that keep coming, and to keep them away at arm’s length.
There is truly nobody like her.
She is my one and only..my most beloved mother.
If it were upto me, to celebrate her, I wouldn’t pick just a single day,
I would hug her, kiss her and wish her a ‘Happy mother’s Day’ every single day.💕
Mother’s Day was first celebrated in the US, in 1908 when a woman named Anna Jarvis wished to commemorate Mother’s Day as a recognised holiday to honour her mother, Ann Reese Jarvis who was a peace activist and had passed away three years prior. Anna had a memorial for her mother in St. Andrews Methodist Church in West Virginia – which is now the International Mother’s Day Shrine. Anna Jarvis wanted to honour her mother as she believed that a mother is “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”.
In most countries Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May, among them the USA, Canada, most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, India, China, Japan, the Philippines and South Africa. One notable exception to this rule are the UK and Ireland, which celebrate Mother’s Day on the fourth Sunday in Lent. Most Arab countries celebrate Mother’s Day on March 21st (vernal equinox). Most East European countries celebrate Mother’s Day on March 8th.
