Today, the 10th May is the “International Mother’s day”. This day was started to celebrate since 1905 by a United States woman called Anna Jarvis after her mother’s dead.
Someone might be having their mothers and someone might not be, but the love for mothers are the same. Mothers are the origin of our lives. From giving us birth to the moment they departed from this world, she always care for us. True kindness and affection is her pulse. Immeasurable love, prolonged struggles and caring for us is her nerves and arteries.
Mother has every right to get her respect because she is part of our life for all living beings in every bad and good situations. She cares for her children only for safety and betterment in all the moments. She makes the child to live with respect and to behave for the best in the society.
Mother sacrifices everything till the child becomes standing on his own feet in this world. She works hard daily for a positive attitude to her child and also in the family. Sometimes mother becomes angry but while seeing the result, it was only for our goodness.
Mother’s day celebration is observed in the honor of all the mothers across the globe, thanking them for their motherhood, their teachings, and their contributions to the society. This day reminds us for the strong bonding that exists between a mother and child and how it is important to uphold that relationship to the very end of life.
But Mother has the power to create her child on the other sides of the world also. Therefore, Napoleon once told, “Give me a good mother, I will conquer the world”.
Therefore, today, amidst the worldwide invasion by COVID-19, to celebrate with a meaningful International Mother’s Day, 2020, let’s observe stay home and do something that will be for the best of our mothers and for those departed, may please plant a tree in their memory for the peaceful rest in their heavenly abode and for an early corona free world.
