Who doesn't love Mom? She is counsellor and confidante, chauffeur and chef, love and life. We make mistakes, she guides us in cleaning the mess. We break her heart, she lets it go. She nurtured us, helped us and cherished us. If necessary she would give her last bit of food to sustain us, her coat to warm us.
In return she asks little and quite often that's what we manage to give. So one day a year we take some time to honour her. Mother's Day is the time to remind us to say thank you to Mom for, well, everything.
