Celebrating mothers. Why must we have a special day just for that?

Shouldn’t mothers be celebrated every day?

I mean, really…. without mothers, no one would even be here to post 1,000 messages of well wishes to mother’s on this day.

The consumerism surrounding these types of days is too much. It has desensitized the masses to the importance of mothers. It’s as if on one day a year we all rush out and buy pink & red things that say “Love you Mom” on them will satisfy the need to let mothers know how special they are for the rest of said year.

In my mind, there should be a little something done to recognize mothers every day. Nothing big… but washing the dishes, taking out the trash, sweeping, folding the clothes… without being asked. Or just a simple hug for no reason. I don’t know…. I just think it’s how things should be. Same goes for fathers.

Shouldn’t we be honoring our mothers and fathers every day?

Shouldn’t we be honoring each other every single day?

Shouldn’t we be honoring each and every life every single day?

I think so…

But in the spirit of the day….

Happy Mother’s Day!

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. My parents said firmly ‘one day would not make up for a year of neglect’ and we never celebrated Mother’s or Father’s Day. However, we were expected to say thank you all year round. And did.

  2. Mothers day in my family is also celebrated on our Birthdays, because she loved us before we were born.

  3. This is precisely why my hubby and I don’t exchange gifts on any occasion. I don’t expect anything for Mother’s Day etc… because I am shown every single day how much I’m loved and appreciated. And our whole family hugs and says I love you and does stuff for each other just because. Works pretty well for me! 🙂

    • We are the same in our household. I do like a card every now and again but it’s not something that crushes me if it doesn’t happen LOL That being said, I like the sentiments when it’s not expected. It’s almost as if these days were created to force the sentiment… I don’t like that.
