A big hug when you are down, a caring cradle when you are sleepy, a steaming bowl of soup when you catch a cold and oodles of cheer when you leave for your first date – a mother means all of these and much more. A mother is a special person to whom you can turn to when crisis strikes and share the biggest joys of life when things look bright without the slightest hint of inhibition.
Becoming a mother is a big thing in a woman’s life too – she starts loving, caring and sharing in life more than ever. Her children become the focal point of her days and nights and her life revolves around rearing and nurturing them up. Your mother is no different and must be showering you with all the care that you need too. It’s your turn now to show her that you care. Mother’s Day is just around the corner and Mothers day cards have reached the racks of card shops.
Mother’s Day and Mothering Sunday
The concept of Mother’s Day arises from Mothering Sunday, which is celebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent, precisely 3 weeks ahead of Easter Sunday in UK, and usually comes through in the later part of March or April beginning. Traditionally, around the 17th century, on this date, people went back to the church for paying homage to the place where they were being baptized after birth or attended prayers and services as children. The date has now however lost its conventional significance in most parts of the world and celebrated as Mother’s Day only – a day which is a celebration of the joys of motherhood. People, on this date, take time out to visit mothers, grandmothers, mother-in-laws and stepmothers and spend time with them. Mother’s Day cards are gifted to these special women by their children in addition to gifts and treats that are especially reserved for the occasion.
Mothers Day is a special occasion for all mothers and children and in the days preceding this occasion, many schools and organizations make special efforts to encourage pupils and children to make handmade Mother’s day cards and gifts for their moms.
