In 1914, Congress passed a Mother's Day resolution, which was signed by then-President Woodrow Wilson.

Mommy, Mom, Momma, Aunty, Goddy, or however you are lovingly called, you should know that on this Mother's Day - and, indeed, every day - we affirm and applaud your selfless devotion and immeasurable contributions.

Let's now get down to some mothers day wishes.


"I think every working mom probably feels the same thing: You go through big chunks of time where you're just thinking, 'This is impossible - oh, this is impossible.' And then you just keep going and keep going, and you sort of do the impossible".

"Thanks for being there through the tears, laughter and dirty diapers". Every day, seven days a week, for about four months, Mom got up with me in the early morning hours, helped me fold my papers and load them into the vehicle for delivery. We love you unconditionally! Regardless, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! The moment you become a mother, you are now responsible for another life. Eventually I became head of corporate business services for InterDigital Communications, and I travelled all over the world opening offices for the company.

"Sometimes I feel very exhausted when I am at work, but then I think of you and I realize that besides working so hard, you also take care of our children, you look after our home and you also dedicate time to me, so I recover my energies". And to all the mothers who've raised them, we recognize it's often a hard, exhausting and thankless job, and we thank you for selflessly doing it anyway. Am I on the phone too much around them? I love you to the moon and beyond.


That's likely something you already knew, but it is, of course, on my mind this morning.

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful women who gave us life, nurtured us and served as our first teacher, greatest friend and staunchest defender. Love you so much. So cancel all your appointment and block the day for your mother. Daily love even in "small" things. For all I know, there may even be a Disreputable Uncle Day. "Alicia, Thank you for your continued support and leadership". But I think maybe more than anything else, they sacrifice their independence - they sacrifice their autonomy. Rich or poor, black or white, Christian or Muslim or atheist, the word "mother" should always be able to be followed by the words "loves her children". I never really understood how lonely you must have been when Dave moved to Georgia. I'm more interested in what my son drew at school than I am in world affairs.

My mother was not different from the other mothers in our Northwestern Kansas town in the late 1950s and early 1960s. She also went to battle against first lady Eleanor Roosevelt for using the holiday to promote the health of both women and children. Mom always had an ear available when we were feeling sad and needed someone to talk to about life.


Madhur Bhandarkar: You can never be replaced but your memories forever remain a blessing to all of us. The way Jarvis put it, Mother's Day is a day to honor "the best mother who ever lived, yours".
