45+ Mother’s Day Quotes, Wishes & Poems To Celebrate The Women Who Raised Us

Someone somewhere said, ‘the greatest love is a mother’s, then a dog’s and then a sweetheart’s’. And, we do agree to this, don’t we? Mother’s Day 2020 is here and we're sure you all must be thinking of ideas to surprise your mom. Just how we celebrate daughter's day each year, mother's day is usually celebrated on the second Sunday of May, and this year, it happens to fall on the 10th of the month.. Mother’s Day is dedicated to celebrate motherhood and honour the women who raised us to be the human beings we are today. However, we believe that our mothers deserve ‘thanks’ more than once a year for everything that they do for us, every day. Their job is a 24/7 gig for which they do not even get paid for.

For those who didn’t know, the custom of dedicating a day to honour all the mothers has ancient roots. Its observance mainly came about through the efforts of a dedicated daughter, Anna M Jarvis. Back in 1908, she organised the first official Mother’s Day celebration to honour her late mother in West Virginia, United States. And after a lot of efforts, on May 8, 1914, then-US President Woodrow Wilson declared the second Sunday of May as Mother’s Day and within a few years, the idea gained popularity.

    “Motherhood has completely changed me. It’s just about like the most completely humbling experience that I’ve ever had.

    - Diane Keaton

    “Motherhood was the great equalizer for me; I started to identify with everybody. … As a mother, you have that impulse to wish that no child should ever be hurt, or abused, or go hungry, or not have opportunities in life.”
