But she remembers lines from a play that she did at age 10!

Thanks for giving me the best things in life: Your love, your care, and your cooking. "I sent to my mom.She loves the pink roses and I used to send her pink roses". Ann Landers captured the tumultuous relationship between a child and her mother in one of her columns. After she died I learned most everybody thought they were her favorites, too. And then when the day comes to labour, she nearly gives her life to give life. You are mom enough.

"She put some water into the dog's dish, put the cat outside, and made sure the doors were locked".

Dia Mirza: "My mother is my hero". She taught me to be the best. It's been tradition between us.

I'd like to propose that this Mother's Day we all begin to recognize and thank women in our lives for the contribution they make to the upbringing of our children on a regular basis whether directly or indirectly.

Either way, I'll take it.

The caption of Sonakshi Sinha's photo with mother said, "Happy Mothers day to my first love, my first friend and my first role model!" I never completely understood until I became a Mom. She has given me all the right values. It has multiple features and can help her keep a check on many things. You weren't there when I received my acceptance letter from university but you immediately called just to tell me how proud you were of me.

Tomorrow is Mother's Day in Uganda. I don't gift Maa anything. She was part of the Mother's Day Work Clubs in local churches which dealt with poor health and sanitation conditions in the neighborhood. But for you I will always remain that child who rushed to your arms after being scared, happy or sad.

Trump's instinct in Korea crisis and elsewhere is 'go big'
Now, however, Trump enters a month-long period where he must set expectations for what he'll really be able to achieve. He made at least seven trips to North Korea to teach.

FOR THE past century, Americans have set aside the second Sunday in May to honor their mothers. Really, it's the most precious gift we can give those who have been there for us time after time after time. Lunch and swim for the kids. When they get older, they step on Mom's heart.

I always enjoyed buying for her though because she'd mothered eight kids and as a result had gone without many extras over the years. As Agatha Christie said: "A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world". I want to tell her that if I were to be born again, then I want to be born only as her child. She recalled those special days shared with her huge family - grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and of course, her mom.

My parents raised three children. "That is the natural order of life!" But in modern times, Mother's Day got rooted in the early Christian festival known as "Mothering Sunday". Every day should belong to the people you love the most.

When you become a mother, you have to forget about yourself because you are living for you and another human being.

I feel better. The idea of writing a column on Mother's Day without writing about my mom is unthinkable. The ad campaigns we see online, in store, or hear on radio are a forced projection of what "mother" is.

Last night, after my daughter went to sleep, I found myself cleaning the day's mess from our house. She has always supported me and my decisions.

I was raised with a dearth of relatives; none of the above mentioned members of my family were within 500 miles of us. She believes in me and that's why my today is for her. I have seen her going through so much in her life, yet she remained the strongest.
