Mother’s Day


Mother’s Day, an annual holiday on the second Sunday of May. It’s a special day to celebrate all mothers and how thankful we are for them by showering them with gifts and love from all their family members.

Mother’s Day puts a spotlight on motherhood, and to recognize maternity and the sacrifices a mother makes for her family. Mothers go through a lot, and it deserves to be noticed how much our mothers do for us. Our mothers go through struggles that we can’t even begin to imagine, they dedicate part of their lives to us. They provide for us and keep us safe the best they can. Our mothers are truly extraordinary people.

For some it’s such an easy day to celebrate for our mothers can be the easiest people in our lives to celebrate, but for others it can be one of the most difficult times of the year and one of the hardest things to celebrate. A lot of people have to go through the pain of losing their mother, or they just don’t have a good relationship with them. A day that’s supposed to be full of love, is a day full of grief and heartbreak.

Our heart goes to those who go through a great deal of heartbreak on this day, as well as to all the beautiful and amazing mothers out there who do their best for their family. Happy Mothers Day!
