It’s yet another day to celebrate mother’s and honor their sacrifices, maternal bonds, mother figures,motherhood and the overall influence of mothers in the society.

Celebrated on the fourth Sunday in Lent in Nigeria, United Kingdom, Ireland, Jersey, Isle Of Man,Guernsey; mother’s day has become one of the most celebrated day worldwide despite the different days and months in which it’s being celebrated.

Need I say, mothers are the salt of the earth and often referred to as the one who has done more or has the most influence in a child’s life.

On days like this, I wish my mother was still alive; so if you’ve got yours celebrate her today, let her know she means a lot to you, appreciate all of her efforts, give her a special treat , put a smile on her face.

Today and as always, let’s dedicate this poem written by Ann Taylor to our mothers;

Who sat and watched my infant head

When sleeping on my cradle bed,

And tears of sweet affection shed?

My Mother.

When pain and sickness made me cry,

Who gazed upon my heavy eye,

And wept for fear that I should die?

My Mother.

Who taught my infant lips to pray

And love God’s holy book and day,

And walk in wisdom’s pleasant way?

My Mother.

And can I ever cease to be

Affectionate and kind to thee,

Who wast so very kind to me,

My Mother?

Ah, no! the thought I cannot bear,

And if God please my life to spare

I hope I shall reward they care,

My Mother.

When thou art feeble, old and grey,

My healthy arm shall be thy stay,

And I will soothe thy pains away,

My Mother.

Happy mother’s day to all the wonderful mothers allover the world including myself and not forgetting all outstanding mothers to be; we make the world a better place, we rock.
