Classic mom, Mr. Mom, single mom, stay-at-home mom, work-all-day-and-still-does-the-laundry mom, foster mom, adoptive mom, birth and biological mom, mother figures, ideal and not-perfect mom. You'll thank me later.

Another special book for mothers and children is the Peppa Pig version of My Mummy.

If you think you have not expressed the love for your mother, this May 14 ensure you don't carry the guilt anymore.

Her eight grandchildren have many fond memories of the time they spent with Grandma: The girls still remember her tea parties with sugar water and trying on her make-up, special lotions, and shoes. "You were all so sweet", she recalls. I lost my mom 27 years ago on Mother's Day.

Neha adds, "I will enter the kitchen only to bake a cake for my mother and mother-in-law".

And no one else can be, what you have been to me, you will always be. Another let me play in the furniture store's display window: Patty.

I know it's frightening, I could tell by the pain in your eyes when the rent was late again. I know the world is right when I am in your arms. It is a relationship that can never be broken, even if it sometimes feels more like a war than a relationship. These women were prophets cajoling our country not only to appreciate mothers, but to emulate them in caring for all children.

That's why we give thanks for them today - and every day. That describes you so well. You're going to have good days and bad days.

If you have a chance to tell your Mom how much she means to you this weekend, please do. Even though I don't always agree with you, I know you are giving me the type of guidance that will build good character and values.

In 1908 the U.S. Congress rejected a proposal to make Mother's Day an official holiday, with some members joking that they would also have to proclaim a Mother-in-Law's Day (I am not making this up).

"Mothers day is just a attractive time here, we have lots of lovely fresh flowers plants, it smells great in here, and we have a lot of pretty things in here for all the mothers", says Monica Harrison, the owner of Winterville Flower Shop. This mother likes snakes, spiders, frogs, all kinds of creepy crawly insects, ice cream for supper, unmade beds, rooms in disarray, and she could care less if you stay out all night! Greet and honor your mother for her contributions to your life.

Their story is quite literally the story of Mother's Day. Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother...

Mother's Day is here at last, rejoice Mom.

During that time in her life I would always leave her with a kiss and hug and the words, "I love you".

"He walked in with a stick and a rock", she said.

The card says "My heart growns and growns for you". With lovers and friends, I still can recall. Both interpretations hold true to this day.

Happy Mother's Day - enjoy your first holiday as a grandmother.
