That is the intent of Anna Jarvis, who established this day after she'd lost her own mother, and who hoped to help others realize their own moms won't always be around.
Mother's Day 2014 is celebrated around the world on the second Sunday of May and this year it falls on 14 May. I know that honoring mom will be easy for many of you and more hard for others.
Perhaps due to circumstances not everyone knew their mom, or grew up with her in daily life, but she was there when we took our first gasp of air.
"It's very important. There's no substitution for spending time with your mother".
Nothing touches one's soul quite like a mother's love.
The excitement to honor the mothers of the land isn't really surprising. And remember, this commandment comes with a promise. "So how about another one?" she said, throwing her hands up. Be with her not only in worst part, but also in our happiest moments and best times of our lives. Again, think through the positive times of your relationship and be ready to talk about those times. She tries her best to go the third mile with each of them. Aside from remembering your moms, take the time to honor those strong and loving women that are looking out for you too.
You are the most lovely gift from God to me, your lap are my heaven and your arms are my protection shield. I know without a shred of doubt that she will never do anything to hurt me.
When I look back over my Mom's life, so many things stand out.

Buy her dinner or bring her special treats.
My Mum has always been there for me and I don't know about her but one of my biggest fears is the day she won't be around.
As it is the eve of Mother's Day, most people have already bought presents, cards or prepared surprises for their mothers to make her feel special on the day. Mother will always be with you at every stage of your life.
Ensure that your children are able to spend Mother's Day with you and Father's Day with their father - it's simply the right thing to do - good karma and all that.
I just want you to know how special and fortunate I find myself to be blessed with a mother as loving, caring and lovely as you.
