The history of Mothers Day differs in the world, but begun in the United States with Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became official in 1914. But why do we have just one day to honor our mothers? Is one day really enough? The answer is no, one day is not enough for mom.

That is the understatement of the year, for all that she has done for me, one day is so not enough to express my love and thanks to my mom. This goes to everyone I think with mothers. Mothers do so much for us throughout our whole lives; they love us unconditionally, they raise us, they put up with so much. By all means, we need to celebrate this day, Mothers Day and tell her how much we really, really appreciate all that she has and continues to do and put up for us. Yet, we should be doing that every day.

I do not know about anyone else, but almost every day I will call up my mom to talk to her and tell her I love her. No amount of thanks and telling her “I love you” is too much. Because of the fact that we should really be giving thanks to our mothers every day, the fact that we do put aside one day each year to really show how much they mean to us; really does make sense.

We want to, no we should show our appreciation to our mothers all the time, yet at the same time, we also need that one day where we go all out for our mothers. The one day where we not only  give thanks; but that we honor them. Instead of them going out of the way for us as mothers are a want to do, we go out of the way for them for at least this one day.

So the true reason that we have a Mothers Day when we should be giving thanks to our mothers every day is because it signifies to them that we can never do enough to honor them for all that they have done for us. Mothers day says that a simple thank you or “I love you” in no way cuts it. So Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers out there. Thank you for all that you have put up with and continue to put up with. Happy Mothers Day for Mom!
