Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
Today the mothers and daughters of Greater Mt Zion Church celebrated those golden days when you wouldn’t sleep without your mother’s lullabies. You preferred her company in all the activities you did more than anyone else’s and your life revolved around her. All these changed when you became independent and self-sufficient and Mother’s Day became just a formal event when you presented the wonderful women in your life with a few flowers and gifts.
We live in a world where we tend to forget the value of motherhood. It is time you realize that this day is more special than bestowing her with a few materialistic gifts. So, forget an attractive gift, spend some time or give some thought to your mother and pamper her as she did to you when you were a little kid. There is no other present which is as beautiful as your presence to your mother. Together with your beloved mom, you can cherish the memories of those days when you started your journey together as a mother and child.
To realize the actual essence of Mother’s Day, it is essential to understand your mother. She is the person who carried you in her womb for nine months and introduced you to the greatest gift of god on earth – the life. She made you realize the real value of life by acting as a guiding force and a guardian angel whenever you were left helpless before the thorny path called life. She was always there with a smile whenever you need a moral support and a shoulder to cry. It was only with pride that she could watch your growth and success. It’s for sure that for a child, a mother is its best friend.
For a person, everyday must be a Mother’s Day. Everyday must be made memorable for your mother. Mother’s Day must be celebrated in such a way that the intensity of the emotions and feelings should be in her mind all through her life. It must also be seen as a day to remember and shower prayers on that special person, without whom we would not have been what we are at present. It’s a day when we should recognize her efforts in shaping our life and personality. It is her unconditional and unadulterated love, which made us mentally prepared to face the harsh realities of life.
