The modern Mother’s Day holiday was created by Anna Jarvis as a day for each family to honor their mother, and it’s now celebrated on various days in many places around the world. Different countries celebrate Mother’s Day on various days of the year because the day has a number of different origins. In South Asia and USA it has been observed on second Sunday of May.
Mother plays vital role in upbringing of children. Everyone has a special relation with their mothers. I also have this unique affection and love for my mother. She knew all my needs before I say anything. The purest relation in this materialistic world is probably the relation of mother and child.
“Men are what their mothers made them”. Ralph Waldo Emerson
I have two mothers, like all of us I love both of them equally. They both made me what I am today but I am worried now days because one of them is in poor health these days. She is 63 years old but due to many diseases and problems in earlier life she is unwell. She has been debilitated by tumors in various parts of the body. Doctors told that the tumors are grown enough to be operated but the whole family was not ready to take chance. We wanted to have any alternate way so that without any pain she could gain health. It seems that she is loosing her health and doctors warned us that if we wanted her to be healthy again we must operate. Our relatives keep telling us that it will be a difficult operation and we should only pray and keep horrifying my mother which destabilizes her health more.
But as they say “When the going gets tough the tough gets going”. She told us that she will combat the situation strongly and we should follow the doctor’s advise. We had to swallow this bitter pill and agreed for the operation. The whole family gathered and supported each other in the decision.
The operation is complex and still in progress. I request all of you to please pray for my mother on this mother day. May all of us be able to have the blessings of mother with us.
Hope you all know about my second mother and pray for her life.
