  • The hand that rocks the cradle is still vital

The US Postal Service released a postage stamp in honor of Mother'sDay featuring James Whistler's painting in 1934.

Mothers who have done well in looking after their children and their husbands deserve all the praise this day, in this one day in the year that families celebrate the special woman in their household. The National Retail Federation says that by the end of today, Mother's Day spending should reach $23.1 billion. You are not forgotten.

Katharine, I loved interviewing you.

First of all... HOW did you do it? You are incredible, you were there when we needed you, treated us like we were the best even when we felt like we were the worst. I hold that hand firm even still, never letting go because you never lost sight of me. She raised money for medicine, inspected bottled milk, improved sanitation and hired women to care for families where mothers suffered from tuberculosis.

The United States has been a global leader in helping to save the lives of mothers and children by providing critical humanitarian assistance. I see you ladies out there starting the conversation, lifting players/coaches up, commenting on a play and getting loud when it matters. But remember she is watching you and Khushi up from Heaven. In many of these countries, however, the day comes with an interesting local twist.

"5. Stevie Wonder: "If love is as sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love". I love you! Happy Mother's Day!

It may be the look in their eyes, spotted by the young man, that does the trick: "Look, you little creep, if you try any amusing business, I will tear your ears off and feed them to you". There is tremendous truth in the old sentiment, "It takes a village to raise a child". What a great day it was yesterday! We can't always go to our first moms.

Centurions! All of Manchester City's remarkable Premier League records

Don't spend too much on chocolate, either. "I insisted on our children doing the same thing, sometimes under protest".

Give your mom a framed photo of the two of you.

You haven't done enough to thank her. Before dads even get a shot at bonding, mom has had nine months or so alone with each of her children.

It is truly a gift being able to bring forth life.

Mother figures abound in our lives, and we often don't realize just how important they are until we're left to depend on them to fill that mother void. She taught us kids to love books and love reading. But we can still acknowledge that the Creator has put us into life situations for a number of reasons. Today would be a great day to reach out and let those people know that on Mother's Day they come into your mind, because you think of them in the same way as you think of your own mom. We are going to make it special just as you make everyday of ours.
