Mothers are indeed the unsung heroes. They are the glue that holds a family together. However, despite of her efforts and sacrifice, most often than not, all her efforts goes unnoticed or unacknowledged. From the day her child is born to the day she dies, a mother can't stop worrying about her child. She shares an intimate, unfathomable relationship with her child. When her child feels pain or pleasure, so too does she. The path of motherhood is indeed a hard one, and the woman who has chosen this path should be applauded. She has opted for a road filled with hardships that no men on earth can ever fully comprehend. She always cared for you and relentlessly stood by you. Now it's payback time for you. Mother's Day is one occasion that gives you the opportunity to do something for your mother,,,,,,,

What makes good mothers? It is a pertinent question whose answer cannot be contained within a few words. Mothers comprise of a bundle of emotions that sometimes defy reason. So this goes out to all the mothers who have kept awake all night with their sick toddlers in their arms, constantly uttering those compassionate words, "It's OK honey, Mummy's here."

For all the mothers who show up at work with milk stains on their dress and diapers in their handbags.

For those mothers who cannot restrain tears from trickling down their cheeks when they hold their babies for the first time in their arms; and for the mothers who give birth to babies they'll never see.

For the mothers who gave homes to babies and gifted them a family.
For the mothers who yell at their kids who clamour for ice cream before dinner.
For the mothers who defy all odds just to watch her kid perform and repeat to themselves
"That's my child!!"
For the mothers who silently shed tears for their children who have gone astray.
So, this is meant for all the young and aged mothers, working mothers and housewives, married mothers and the single mothers, those with money and without and for those without whom life would have been insufferable. Wish you a very Happy Mother's Day!!
