A popular saying is that God cannot be present everywhere and so he created mothers. The relationship between a mother and a child is very special and that is as good as truth. A mother means the world to a child, it is she who protects, nourishes, and bestows her child with love and care. It is she who sacrifices many things in life to give the best to her children.
Mother's day is that special day that gives you the perfect opportunity to shower your mom with your love and affection. It gives you the opportunity to tell your mother how much she means to you and pamper her with generous gifts. However, you need not spend a fortune and buy expensive gifts for your mom. You can make her day special with beautiful quotes, poems, and loving words.
Let her know how special her love for you is, and acknowledge all the pain and sacrifice she took to raise you the way you are. Thank her for her unconditional love, for forgiving you when you did something wrong, and held you when the world around condemned you.
Thank her for being at your side when you needed her the most. Remember how she stayed awake at night to protect you when you used to fall sick. Recall all the good times you shared with your mom and tell her how you cherish every moment of your early days.
If you run out of words or do not know how to express your emotions, then here are the lyrics of a famous poem for mother's day titled "A mother's love" beautifully written by "Helen Steiner Rice". Memorize and recite it to your mom or quote your favorite line in a thank you note. Your mom will definitely cherish it and appreciate your effort.
A Mother's Love
A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.
