Mother's Day is one of the most deeply personal and sentimental times of the year.

"By the grace of God, you shall have that Mothers Day".

Mother's Day means big business for retailers.

And so it goes.

Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, according to history.com, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother's Day is the early Christian festival known as "Mothering Sunday".

On this Mother's Day, I'm even more aware of the incredible miracle of becoming a mother. Mother's Day is a great time to spend with Mom. Mom always had an ear available when we were feeling sad and needed someone to talk to about life. Mother is the name of the power that gives us our existence. They are treated like every other child with respect and the teaching to respect and not judge any other human.

Dear Mom, For enduring the blood curdling torture of my adolescent years, I promise to always keep your electronics functional.

Do you perhaps have more information pertaining to this story? As the middle class continues to erode, time and financial demands escalate. But my mom's always been that one that's just been, you know that she cares for me and I can always feel that unconditional love.

Apart from remembering roughly where it falls in the year and ensuring you get something for your Mom, you probably just think about it as something that happens every year, and has done so for a long time.

Julia Ward Howe, a Boston poet, pacifist, suffragist and author of the lyrics to the "Battle Hymn of the Republic", also has been credited with suggesting a "mother's day", as she organized a day encouraging mothers to rally for peace about 130 years ago.

And what is our societal response to all this? As such, they have the most effect on how they turn out as adults, and doubly so in the case of solo mothers.

As you watch them grow to have their own personalities, you start to enjoy the bond and friendship that you develop with your child. Some of you work full-time jobs.

This is what we do. We love you unconditionally!
