Let's keep more moms alive to celebrate their first Mother's Day

Let's keep more moms alive to celebrate their first Mother's Day

Others are estranged. One woman I know wants her mom to be something she never will, and she is not the daughter her mom thought she would be.

Mother's Day is time to thank and express love for one's mother along with making her feel special. Your place in my heart is above all as you have helped me in every step of my life like my real mother.

The idea was to observe a day for mothers by visiting, or at least writing to them, and for people to wear a white carnation and live the day as their mother would. But for those who plan to take the route of wining and dining their family matriarchs this weekend, don't let the gifts steal too much of the spotlight.

Mother's Day, 2018: People on social media are enlisting things they are thankful to their mothers for.

"To the world, you are a mother". Here's to the eternal love I feel for you mom! It is said that Sybele was the mother of Greek deities, and Mother's Day was celebrated as a festival to honour her.

I know. I don't have to imagine it. Children and teens today may have foster moms, stepmoms, substitute and surrogate moms.

How do we even begin talking about the sacrifices that mothers make? This year, the National Retail Federation estimates Mother's Day spending in the US will reach $23.1 billion, with 86 percent of Americans participating in the celebration and doling out an average of $180 each. She is the best mom in the world.

And 90 percent of moms say they can do without chocolate. She reminds me, back when I was younger, the time I put in there.

In honor of Mother's Day, below is a roundup of some of the best quotes from the most well-known mothers about splitting their time between home and the office.

I have a picture of you on the desk in my home office - yes, I have an office at home - taken when you were in your 20s. Perhaps you have a woman in your life who's given a child up for adoption, or alternately know someone who's lost a child. To have a meal with them and share gifts and cards with them and thank them for all they've done, though for many of us there likely aren't enough cards or flowers (or words) to adequately match the appreciation the moms in our lives deserve. You are wonderful, perfect, and I love you with all of my heart. I love you to the moon and beyond.

Make it a truly happy Mother's Day.

How many messages have you exchanged with your friends this week compared to your mom? "It's your day. Today & everyday".

Today's doodle shows a mother dinosaur and her baby walking side by side showing how a mother is always there for her children, guiding and protecting them. You have turned a notorious kid into a smart individual. "Thank you for letting me know how to be pleasant even in hard circumstances".

Mother figures abound in our lives, and we often don't realize just how important they are until we're left to depend on them to fill that mother void.
