In my country, we celebrate Mother’s Day on May 10th. Sorry for posting this late, I had a few problems with the blog and I couldn’t open it but it’s there now! =D
Mother’s Day is a day to show your mom how much you love her, how much you appreciate everything she has given to you, it’s a chance to apologize if you have ever done something wrong to make her upset, it’s a day to appreciate and thank her for the first thing she ever gave to us and without it we wouldn’t be here: life and love.
But Mother’s Day shouldn’t be celebrated just one day, it should be celebrated every day of the year because our mom does her job not once but 24 hours a day every day of our lives!
Here’s how we celebrated Mother’s Day this year.
Every year in my school, as I mentioned in my last post, we make a Mother’s Day event, and we have a Mother’s Day card/letter contest and the best one from each classroom is chosen and the author gets to read it in front of everyone during the event. My card was chosen this year from the 8th grade, along with another girl’s card from 9th grade and no one from 7th grade =P
My teacher asked me to keep it a secret for my mom so I could surprise her when I read the letter, so I told my mom that I was just going to help my teacher say some small poems during the event. I was so nervous, my stomach started feeling nervous and I was worried about my pronounciation.
But when my teacher made the sign to tell me it was my turn to read my letter (they mentioned that mine won frst place =D ) as I walked to the microphone I felt my fear slowly going away and when I finished I forgot if I even read it with good pronounciation and I went to give my mom some flowers and my card and as I went to where she was sitting I saw tears in her eyes and she got up to give me a hug.
No one said anything and even a photographer got near us on the moment we hugged and a lot of people were taking pictures and the woman sitting next to my mom was crying too. I felt something that I can’t even explain when I went to hug my mom. Then my crazy aunt yelled “THAT’S MY SISTER!” =P
A lot of people were saying how nice my card was and it was the one that made them cry the most, I actually never thought that they were going to react that way and less was my hope that my card would be chosen. I felt so… satisfied and full of joy that they liked it I suppose but I still can’t explain it right =D
But when I saw that my mom was still crying from the letter she told me that she couldn’t believe that those beautiful words came from me and she thanked me for loving her so much.
I’m thinking that my card’s last paragraph is true, because I wrote “Maybe I won’t remember this card tomorrow, but the message it leaves will stay in my memory and everyone’s memory forever: anything can be forgotten, except the love your mother gives to you. That love will stay with me forever” and I don’t remember every single word that I wrote, but what I do remember is all that my mom has done to give me a good life, all that she has done to make me feel happy, I remember that she loves me.
♥Mom, thank you for making me the person I am, without you, I would have never been myself, I can’t imagine where I would have been without you. Mom, I love you so much and I will be with you forever, during the good and bad moments of life, I will always remember you and I will always love you. Thank you for being my best friend and the best mom =)♥
♥Happy Mother‘s Day!♥
How do you celebrate this special day? =D See you soon!
