A woman is a daughter, sister, and wife but above all, she plays the role of being a Mother. A day would never be enough to let her know how special she is but there’s no harm in celebrating a day where we could all tell our mothers that we owe our life to them. Although we deny listening to her advice most of the time, we know that a mother knows best. From our first word to our first friend, our first teeth to the first fall, our moms have been the most integral part of the journey. A mother would know when her child is in pain and when they are hungry, and there can be no better cure than sleeping in her lap. She is the first teacher of our life and the only one who never punished us for the wrong deeds rather taught us the lesson, good or bad.
I rely on her not only during my needs but during all the turmoil of my life because there’s no better guide than her. A childhood of a person sows seeds such that we turn into adults and our moms play the most important role in shaping it into a beautiful garden. I can never be thankful enough to my mother for every little thing she has done for me but I can be sorry for all those times I haven’t valued her words. There are times where we consider ourselves to be an adult and we neglect the advice of our mother, but with every wrong decision I have taken in my life, I have realized the importance of her words. Dedicate every day of yours to your mother but on Mother’s day, let’s just make her feel more special because, with every step we take, she takes ten steps ahead of us.
The celebration began in the United Stated during the early 20th century. It was first eminent in the year 1908 at St. Andrew’s Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia, in the memory of Anna Jarvis’s Mother. This place consists of the International Mother’s Day shrine in the present day. Anna’s objective was to honor her mother and she continued with her work being an activist for the wounded soldiers of the civil war. She wanted to mark a day in the honor of all the mothers. She was successful in founding Mother’s Day but it was not considered as an official holiday as the US Congress had rejected the proposal. In recent times, most of the countries celebrate the second Sunday of May as Mother’s Day.
With the modernization, the celebration of Mother’s Day has gained popularity to a great extent. In our busy schedule, we have very little time to spend with our family. Thus, we take these occasions as an opportunity to let them know that we care. A simple act of love and care is enough to make our moms feel special. A mother is the backbone of the family and she gives all her time and life to create a beautiful family but she never demands anything in return except our happiness. But a token of love on a special occasion is never a bad idea.
Gifts are the most vital part of every celebration and with the growing demands of different and unique gifts, the market of creative items have grown to a greater extent. There is a variety of gift ideas for Mother’s Day and availability of unique items that can make her feel special.

Jewelry is the most precious possession of a woman and gifting her a beautiful ring or necklace on this special occasion would definitely make her happy.

Her entire life, she prioritizes her children and her family. In our everyday busy schedule, it is not possible to give our moms enough time but at least for this one day in a year, we could do something to make her feel special and tell her how important she is. If not every day, then at this one day we can tell her that we owe it all to her because without our mothers we would have been nowhere and without her dedication and love, we would never have grown into a better person. Let’s take the opportunity and tell our Moms that not just today but every day of our life is Mother’s day.
