News Survey 40% of moms fake enthusiasm over Mother’s Day presents By Monica Torres

Every second Sunday in May we gather, usually within our families or small groups, for a meal or some other activity to celebrate Mom.

The auspicious day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.

For each of us, the specifics of a mother's influence vary, but the profound impact a mother can have on her offspring is universally understood. It nearly always brings a tear to my eye when my wife says that to our daughter.

It was the awful understanding that washed over me as I came to grips with the fact I wouldn't be able to spend my adulthood telling my mother just how much I had appreciated her over the years. That's billion with a big "B".

"My mom means the world to me. I miss her so much (sic)" User Sanjana wrote, "This picture can not be expressed in words, it's that precious". When a child gets hurt, Mom is there to pick them up and cuddle them and kiss away their tears.

When we were young, Mom put mercurochrome on our scapes and would softly blow it dry.

My mom now lives with one of my sisters, a true angel. We were constantly studying, constantly doing errands and working hard to create a good life. She always was there when we were happy, in love, suffered a broken heart or just needed a little perking up. Another fan Brinda wrote, "Your mother was a legend and we all miss her a lot".

"She was always nervous (at games)".

Grace: My mother taught the importance of the Golden Rule, to treat other people the way you wanted to be treated. She may have helped with homework, taken us to soccer games and band practice, swimming lessons and the dentist. They are sacrificial, loving, caring and most of all they never judge.

"I sometimes wish that I knew all of the "right" words to say to let you know that I love with everything that I have and everything that I am". It's a day well spent Mother's Day. A mother is always with her child during the worst and best times.

The way you have taken care of me for all those years. When I arrived at the house, he was sitting at the kitchen table with a bemused look on his face. She is the place you came from, your first home, and she's the map you follow with every step you take. Mom never met a piece of candy she didn't like.

So to all the mothers out there, I hope today is a good one. The trailer park, with 70 customers, was designed in such a way that I could not throw newspapers on the porch from a vehicle. I know Mom is watching over her family I feel her presence in many ways her love is like the wind, you can't see it but you sure feel it. You wouldn't even be breathing.

So, celebrate Mom today. He too posted a selfie with his mother to grace the occasion.

Imagine, daddies, all the things you might have to do and awkward discussions you might have if Mom were not around.
