New Delhi: Mother’s day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May. This year, the special day falls on Sunday (May 9).
The day is an opportunity to honour mothers for their selfless love and sacrifices. They are the epitome of unconditional love, support and sacrifice. Nobody can take the place of a mother. From the day her child is born to the day she breathes her last, a mother only lives for her child.
Mother’s Day is a celebration of motherhood. From feeding them to being the constant support and shoulder to cry on, the duty of a mother is endless. A mother’s love can never be changed and for her, her fully grown adult offspring will still seem like a little baby.
It is a special day to make your mother feel loved and cherished. Mothers are selfless, shower unconditional love on their children, and sacrifice all their needs for their families. The workload of mothers has increased amid the COVID-19 pandemic, thus this day should be taken as an opportunity to make them feel special.
Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, it is not advised to go step out of the house to celebrate the day, but one can always spend some quality time with their mother at home.
