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.

I hope those who still have their Mom's alive, truly appreciate them. I miss my Mom every single day. -Noted

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.

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.
