Mother's Day is a modern celebration honoring one's mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. It is a day of the year on which mothers are particularly honoured by their children. In North America and South Africa it is the second Sunday in May; in Britain it has become another term for Mothering Sunday.

The celebration of Mother's Day began in the United States in the early 20th century; it is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a celebration of the mother church, not motherhood).[1][2][3][4] Despite this, in some countries, Mother's Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.
We are all very lucky if we have our mothers with us so we must celebrate this day with her, even if she is not here with you and she is abroad. Celebrate a mother's love.

One of the quotes are: "Mom, you have been the most influential person in my life. I appreciate all the sacrifices you made to raise me. Happy Mother's Day."
While children shower their mothers with gifts each year, the most thoughtful part of Mother's Day is when they write cards. In fact, Hallmark estimates that 133 million cards are exchanged every Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day!
