Mother's Day, to me, is probably one of my favorite holidays each year. Actually, I believe it may trump over birthdays and possibly even Christmas. Just for the shear fact of the meaning and representation behind it. Now being a mother myself, I have a much greater appreciation for my own mom knowing how much hard work, dedication, and selflessness she gave raising two little girls so close in age. That's why it's so important to recognize and pay homage to the ones who put themselves last in order to put their children first.
