Mother’s Day and Gardenia

We Love Our Mother

Every country in the world has a special day to celebrate Mother’s Day, with different ways and forms.

In the US, Mother’s Day is on the second Sunday in May. It is today.

Happy Mother’s Day!

We always think a special treat to our mother. Many ways to celebrate Mother’s Day, even this year might have some restrictions:

  • Online shops offer the many variety of gifts, but sometimes home gifts or cards are preferred.

  • Spending time with her, talk with her either virtual or directly,

  • Watching her favorite TV series or TV show with her.

  • Helping her in the kitchen or garden.

  • Sending flowers online from the florist

  • Sending prayers

It was a special Mother’s Day back ten year ago.

Fig 03- Amazing scent from the bushy Gardenia.

When I rode a bus to the Wal-Mart Super Center, an elderly man bought couples bouquet of red roses from the store.

Then, he back to the bus that waiting for him and other passengers.

He handed in a sprig of roses to every adult woman in the bus. A happy smile curved on his face.

He said, “Ladies. Happy Mother’s Day! You are the ladies who raised children either your own or other people children.”

Everyone was so happy, and a lady asked some questions on him. We knew he had never met his biological mother, but he had many mothers.

From this moment, I learned how important “the Mother’s Day”. It is a day to honor who spend her time in caring a child, it does not matter her own or not.

Mother’s Day is extended to wider span: mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, stepmothers, and mother figures.
