Who is a Mother ?

I believe that Mother is a verb; actions done with selfless dedication and love.

Robert A. Heinlein has rightly said: “Being a mother is an attitude, not a biological relation”.

Amit Kalantri once said:“A mother gives you a life, a mother-in-law gives you her life”.

Apart from my biological mother; i being married have mother-in-law who loves and cares for me with as much compassion and kindness as my mother. If I am lucky, someday i might have a girl child who will “verb” as my mother when i get old.

This magnanimous love is what accurately defines “a Mother”.

Who is Mother of Mother’s Day?

Anna Jarvis is known as the “Mother of Mother’s Day”. She took the initiative to appreciate her mother and celebrate Mother’s Day, three years after her death, at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.

She herself could not attend it, but she did send a telegram to the attendees, highlighting the importance of the day along with five hundred white carnations.

Anna Jarvis efforts ultimately turned this day in the United States as the first modern holiday to celebrate Mother’s Day in 1908.

But, the way modern day Mother’s Day was commercialized made her feel sad. She once said, and i quote:

“To have Mother’s Day the burdensome, wasteful, expensive gift day that Christmas and other special days have become, is not our pleasure,…”

“If the American people are not willing to protect Mother’s Day from the hordes of money schemers that would overwhelm it with their schemes, then we shall cease having a Mother’s Day—and we know how.”

What is the flower of Mother’s Day?

The white carnation were Anna Jarvis mother’s favorite flower and thus it was the original flower of Mother’s Day.

What’s the manual for Life?

I believe that Life doesn’t come with a manual. All it comes with is a mother. So, the responsibilities of motherhood cannot be delegated even when with the present day options like pre-nursery or babysitters.

Mother’s influence during these crucial formative years is what forms the basic character of a child. He/She experiences Love, Faith, Compassion, Acceptance, Tolerance and Strength that provides the foundation character.

Home is the place where the child learns this observing his/her Mother. She becomes the example of righteousness. Someone whose arms and heart is always open, even when she is tired or ill.

“Without you there would be no me.

I am everything reflected in your eyes.

I am everything approved by your smile.

I am everything born of your guidance.

I am me only because of you.” — Richelle E

How to wish Mother with Mother’s Day Quotes/Wishes ?

Just say to them, voice call, Video call or personally, how you say doesn’t matter. Expensive gifts or out of the box celebration is not what they want. All they want is some of your time and love so please give them that.

The Best Gift on Mother’s Day?

The greatest gift you can give to our mother is our time. To add to this, if you physically can, do make a cup of tea/coffee for her in the morning; hug her tightly; say your words {don’t copy and paste from internet/WhatsApp} and ask her to take rest for today and you will do her duty.

That’s it, I believe this the biggest, priceless gift that will bring smile on her face.

If you have time, you can make some Origami Flowers for her. You can definitely buy fresh/natural flowers; but if you make one that’s more valuable because you have given your time and labor on it, and that is priceless. 

What makes Mother “The Best” ?

I believe it’s because she listens to us, patiently, without being judgmental.She doesn’t say “I told you so” just to prove her right. She cares without wanting anything in return. She is always there, no matter what. She cleans all our mess without a sweat of tiredness when she is ill. That’s Mother; “OUR GOD ON EARTH”

Aligned with Milton Berle thinking, I too wonder:

“If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?”
