Mother’s Day learning!

Every year, in most countries of the world, the second Sunday of May is being celebrated as the Mother’s Day denoting the universal and individual love and affection for mother. Children show their love and regards for their respective mother by presenting flowers and gifts or by staying with mother for a whole day.Meanwhile in some societies including ours wards do not take proper care of their mothers in old age, sometimes mothers are being totally ignored by their sons and daughters. Some mothers are even sent to old-age homes. The condition aggravates when the mother gets seriously sick at old age. Married sons and daughters often feel embarrassed to keep their mothers in home who get sick due to old age complications.
Perhaps on this Mother’s Day (08 May) we should learn how to become care-giving loving children to mothers and how to keep them safe and sound till their last breath!
