This article explore Mother's Day from the perspective of someone who's not a mom.

Let me begin by saying, I am not a mother (although I do have beautiful "fur-babies"). This is what I think about Mother's Day and why you should definitely show your mother some appreciation.

What Makes Mother's Day so Special?

At work this passed week, I've heard more people say, "Isn't every day Mother's Day?" and "This is so stupid." than I ever have before. What is it about this one day of the year that is so inconvenient for you? No one demands that on Mother's Day you buy expensive gifts, or super sappy cards. Mother's Day is not about material items, nor is any other holiday for that matter.

Don't Overlook What Your Mother Does for You?

I think a lot of people overlook the things that their mothers (and fathers/caregivers) do for them because they're just used to it, and I am no exception to this rule. This doesn't necessarily mean that we're ungrateful or that we don't appreciate it, it just means that we sometimes forget that she doesn't do it because she has to, she does it because she wants to- because she loves you.

Mother's Day Is a Day to Reflect

Mother's Day is simply a day for us to actually reflect on the other 364 days of the year, during which she did so much for us. It's a day to remind us of all the struggles she's gone through just to get us to school in the morning, or to eat our vegetables, or getting us to do our math homework, or helping us make the right decision (regardless of home minuscule).

Why You Should Appreciate Your Mother

My point is this: being a mother is not a job that you ever get to clock in and clock out of. Even after the kids leave the nest, her job is still not done. A mother does not retire her job of being a mother because you've left the home that she lives in, she continues to be your mother.

You don't need to be close to your mother to appreciate the things that she's done for you; the things that she still does for you. Mother's Day is simply a day where you are reminded to thank her for being the mom that she is. The same even applies to Father's Day.

Get Her a Gift to Say Thank You

Whether your mom is your grandma, your aunt, your dad, a friend, or someone else, take some time to thank them for being there for you. Not just one day of the year.

Of course, bringing her flowers probably won't break the bank- and if it does, I'm sure just hearing from you will be enough.

Additionally, if your mother is no longer with you, take the day to remember her. Look through old pictures, videos, letters, whatever it may be- and smile.

Today we are living in an era in which women are competing men in all the fields. They are the combating man on every battlefield. Among the young, energetic, and enthusiastic ladies, Precious Cooper is an emerging name. She is an American street racer that is also renowned as the queen of the street. Her driving skill and racing have risen her to the heights of fame and prominence at the age of 28 only.
