Mothers Day is the second Sunday in May each year, and is a day set aside to honor our Mothers. According to Wikipedia, it is a celebration that honors mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
Mom's deserve a break from the kitchen on this day, so it is a great day to take your Mother out to Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner, or cook for them!

Hopefully, if you choose to take a picture of yourselves for your Mom for Mother's Day, you will be a little bit more successful than these two guys: (they did have the right idea though...Mom's love getting pictures of their kids as a gift!)
I could really relate to the video above! My kids got along great when they were young, but then went through a stage where they couldn't stand each other, which was super hard. At times, I thought there was no hope, but I'm glad to say that now they are older, they are great friends!
Mothers Day is a great day of the year to put aside all sibling fighting and give your Mom a nice and peaceful day. As a Mom...that is one of the best gifts for the day!
Mothers Day can also be a sad day! Many children are Motherless, or separated from their Mother by divorce, distance, or death. Many Mother's have lost children through miscarriage, or death, and this can be a difficult day to get through. Many Mom's are in the military and stationed overseas during Mothers Day.
Whatever the reason, if you know a Motherless child, try to include them in your own family plans for the day!
