Make Mother's Day very special

When I gasped that I had never done that in my life pat came her answer, 'Well, Amartya Sen has never praised you during your life so far.' My mom is a riot!

Nowadays, mom is often on her own, struggling with a job or two in a juggling act with finding time to raise the kids.

One thing she has definitely taught me is patience.

Long before her death, Jarvis' mom Ann Reeves Jarvis hoped someone would dedicate a day to honor mothers.

If I was under the weather - usually ailing with the typical contagious irritants of an elementary school student, she was a regular Nurse Nightingale. My words can not be enough to thank her. The only student who never did well with her as a teacher was me, and that was my fault, not hers.

Dia Mirza: "My mother is my hero".

I long to pick up the phone to hear her voice again.

The second Sunday in May has been the day we traditionally celebrate everything our mothers do for us. It's been tradition between us. I know Mom is watching over her family I feel her presence in many ways her love is like the wind, you can't see it but you sure feel it. I'll tell them how grateful I am that my mother didn't die when she received a cancer diagnosis a week after my 13th birthday, that she recovered from that first bout and we got 10 more years together. "But sinceMother's Day is officially on Sunday my Dad and I will take Mom out for dinner".

It is also reported that the, "mothers of children with high levels of behavior problems have the most pronounced physiological profile of chronic stress, but the long-term effect on their physical health is not yet known". She did say, "Now, Marilyn", if I were upset with Terry.

It's Mother's Day today and just like the rest of the world, Bollywood too is sharing their wishes and love on social media accounts for their moms.

Clashes break out in 7th Friday anti-Israel rallies in eastern Gaza
Palestinians burned tires to blind the Israeli snipers from shooting protesters, sending flaming kites into Israeli territory. The Hamas-led demonstrations are aimed at breaking the decade-long Israeli and Egyptian blockade on the coastal strip.


Shweta Prasad: "I don't believe in these special days for special people".

There's no way any of us can thank our mothers for the work they do, day in and day out. I don't gift Maa anything. I'd like to share with her all that is going on in the family circle, how her love lives on in her children and their children.

Happy Mothers' Day to all our remarkable mothers.

In fact, it was the commercialization of Mother's Day that initially caused some controversy around the holiday in its early years.

I recently watched a report on 60 Minutes about gender bias and how it effects working mothers. And I think it's very important for me to represent her on Mother's Day because she's the one that drove me to actually stay motivated to play. Lunch and swim for the kids. She even bought the house next door to hers just to store her massive correspondence. I'd want to pattern my life after yours even if you weren't my mother.

Whether we realise it or not, our mothers help us through life every day; whether it is with something small like making breakfast or something life-changing like helping us through emotional crises. She didn't want anything fancy. It's okay but none of these would be possible if it wasn't for the role of motherhood. From Amitabh Bachchan to Alia Bhatt, everyone remembered their mothers on this special day. "That is the natural order of life!"

Mom still pouts, moans, worries and caterwauls any time I eat out, venture out to the mall, or make a day trip to visit my in-laws. I love her and totally depend on her for everything. It also pays homage and highlights the several sacrifices they make on a daily basis.

Mother's day is meant to appreciate mothers, not only just your own mother but every single mother. Thank you for being my confidante, my best friend, my go-to person for anything good or bad that happens to me-who listens to my every rant and every delight. The more I say is less about her.

I've always been responsible, but now that I'm a mother, my priorities are always intact. I don't like to make someone feel noticeably guilty for having made me talk about my dead parent in the middle of a mutual friend's birthday party. We go to the dialysis center twice a week for her session.
