Mother's day should be celebrated everyday. You only have one and if you show her compassion year round then it shouldn't be so costly. Thank you.

Wish my Mom were still alive so I could honor her in person. But, I can always honor her by making a donation in her name to a deserving charity.

My mom and I help run a bake sale to support our troops on Mother's Day.

Interesting. Agree that each day is Mother's Day but there is obviously a special day to honour our mothers and remember those who have passed away.
