Thank you this was the best essay in my class!!
Mother’s Day is a day when people celebrate their mothers. On this day, people give greeting cards and gifts to their mothers to let them know how much they are appreciated for all that they have done for their children. It is observed on various days in different countries mainly because the day has a number of different origins. Some believe that this day emerged from a custom of mother worship in ancient Greece, which celebrated a festival in honor of Cybele, a great mother of Greek gods.
North America celebrates Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May. Mother’s Day was imported from Britain by social activist Julia Ward Howe after the American Civil War. It began as a call to unite women against war. She was inspired by Ann Jarvis who, in 1858, had tried to improve sanitation by establishing Mother’s Work Days. After her death in 1905, her daughter, Anna Jarvis, started the crusade to found a memorial day for women.
In 1907, she handed out 500 white carnations (her mother’s favorite flower) at her mother’s church, one for each mother in the congregation. Since then, carnations have come to represent Mother’s Day. K is a custom to sport a carnation on Mother’s Day. It represents the purity of a mother’s love. Nowadays red carnations are for mothers who are alive and white for those who are dead.
And finally in our mature stages of life, our mothers encourage and support us, her children, until we become successful leaders. In this stage, we expand our knowledge and experience as adults and finally understand the meaning of our mothers to us, that unconditional relationship. And even if our paths are inscrutable and narrow, their urbane support and smiles helped us to pursue our dreams. For instance, William Wallace was not mistaken when he said "The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world" in his poem about motherhood, because some of our mothers play a significant part in establishing great leaders who rule nations. For example: the president Martin Luther King was taught how to read by his mother before he started school. She also explained to him how the civil war ended with hate among the white and black people. Moreover, Sara Roosevelt helped in the success of her only child Franklin Roosevelt. She made sure that Franklin grew up in an atmosphere of privilege. She was always prepared with something positive about him, and tried to protect him. On the contrary, neither one of us, the children, would prefer to be busy with the politics than from our mothers sophisticated utopian world, where we hope to live until the eternity.
Undeniably, our mothers have taught us lessons of forgiveness, faith and morals. Those lessons need to be taught as a curriculum in schools. Our mothers nurtured, sacrificed and supported us so that we can be who we are today. Yet undoubtedly, our mother's white heart will beat more with a small hug more than all these perishable "remnants" of this world. How can you pay back the sun and the water for their usefulness? When you could answer this question, which I doubt you could, then you could pay back your mother! Hence, I might have only described a drop in our mother's deep ocean of tenderness, but without that drop the ocean will be less.
