Celebrating Mom: Happy Mother's Day!

It’s the day to celebrate mothers for all that they do!

She wiped your nose when you were sick, gave you kisses and said ‘I love you’ every chance she got.

Mother’s Day, celebrated the second Sunday in May, honors the love that moms give, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds and mom’s influence on society. The first Mother’s Day was celebrated in 1908.

Celebrate mom for the strong, awesome, loving and caring person that she is. From the first moment she held you, she knew she’d love you forever.

As your own private cheering section and biggest fan, mom did everything she could to make sure you succeeded, never asking for anything in return.

For those of you whose moms are no longer with us, (I say this because I’m one of the many remembering my mom today) remember her dearly and celebrate her openly. She may be gone, but her love for you lives on.

Whether biological, or just the woman who raised you (she’s still your mom because she chose you), celebrate mom for the strength, light and love that she is. And as you're celebrating mom, just remember that not all superheroes wear capes.

Send us your photos as you celebrate mom to my5@wmctv.com.
