Mother’s Day 2022, A Tribute To All Mothers

Mother’s Day 2022

Mother’s day is celebrated every year on the second Sunday of May. Although we must respect our mother throughout the year, Mother’s day is marked to honor her influence on the family. A mother makes a lot of sacrifices in life to keep her children safe. Mother’s day is a way to tell your mother how much she means to you. A woman plays many roles in her life starting from a doting daughter loved and pampered by her parents and a caring sister to her siblings. Then later on from a career-oriented hardworking professional to a loving and devotional wife. But out of all the roles a woman plays, one is the most divine, the selfless and lifelong role of a caring and loving Mother.

Mother’s Day 2022: History

Mother’s Day is a special day set aside to appreciate the mothers across the world. The modern Mother’s day began in the United States and was initiated by Anna Jarvis in the early 20th century after her mother died. She wanted to honor her mother by continuing to work on public health issues. She believed a mother is “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”. Thus, after her efforts of declaring Mother’s day a holiday, the US declared the same by 1911. We salute all the mothers for their hard work and contribution throughout their life.
We salute all the adoring Mothers of this world and on this Mother’s Day, we pay a small tribute to some of the great mothers, who were not only dedicated parents but also an inspiration to everyone.

She spent many years in Calcutta, India where she founded the Missionaries of Charity, a religious congregation devoted to helping those in great need. She was a loving, helpful and caring mother to everyone. She nursed for the sick, cared for the poor, and everyone was equal before her eyes just as every child is equal to a mother. Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and became a symbol of charitable, selfless work.
