This year, it will be observed today - May 13. Mother's Day serves as a great reminder for one to do just that. In a world where modern success is often perceived by tertiary qualifications, job titles, auto you drive and the house you live in, we simply can not apply the same measuring stick for all the mothers. There are also many ways to receive mothering. Remember the origins of Mother's Day and for whom this day is meant: Mom. She's the phone call I make because I know if it's been a few days she misses me and I miss her.

Here is wishing all the mothers a very happy mothers day! 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. What was your reaction when your doctor had to cancel your appointment at the last minute because of a family emergency?

"To the world, you are a mother".

For nine long months - and sometimes longer - a mother slaves over giving life to you and me, her unborn child.

On the eve of Mother's Day, it's an opportunity to honor the mom or mom-like figure in your life for her sacrifices and love for you. I do not know what I would do without you! Absolutely, they do deserve more than a smile because they only demand happiness from their children. May you continue to be your savage self forever mom!

The holiday's founder worked so hard to get the world to stop and give moms everywhere a shoutout. I hope you are surrounded by love and peace! Every day, seven days a week, for about four months, Mom got up with me in the early morning hours, helped me fold my papers and load them into the vehicle for delivery.

I appreciate what I read the other day...

It's because of those days when you drove us to and from school that we were able to make it to class on time.

You were, you are and you will always be my best friend mom.

Take the chance to say thank you. Since then, the church has been dubbed the "International Mother's Day Shrine". You are unbelievable and very strong!

But for starters, give mom that "Thank you", and one or more of those specifics, a true "thank you" gift personalized from you to your mom. This can be a tough day for some of you. It's filled with a wonderful love that has made us who we are and has made our family what it is today. You have turned a notorious kid into a smart individual.

Have you ever received a bunch of flowers and felt gleeful, excited and happy?
