“Because I feel that, in the Heavens above
The angels, whispering to one another,
Can find, among their burning terms of love
None so devotional as that of ‘Mother’”
— Edgar Allen Poe —
A woman’s femininity is often measured by her role as a mother. If she isn’t a mother now, she is expected to be one in the future. Such belief systems are often woven deep into this society. The love between a mother and her child is the purest bond in the world.
What is motherhood?
Being a mother is one of the greatest and sweetest joys of womanhood. She is the fundamental on which her family stands, the shelter where her children grow as well as the shoulder for her partner to lean on.
A mother shapes not just her children, but also the family and the entire society. The emotional foundation that is laid by her is the one that is set for life.
Her sacrifices all start with love. A mother can be tired, wear out, and stressed, but she will never want to be apart from her babies. For the sake of her children, she is first a mother, then a wife/partner, sister, daughter, friend, but still a small individual in this wide world.
The importance of motherhood
The role that all women are expected isn’t really smooth. It comes with its own set of challenges along with raising children. Motherhood isn’t a momentary task, it is the one that takes over all their time. She bears pain and trouble not only for the nine months of gestation but also for the rest of her life.
The significance of motherhood is marred through time. It is considered the so-called ‘duty’ of a woman. Most of the time, the importance of mothers is set aside with no mercy. Many people, as independent individuals, often conveniently forget the true value of their mothers in their life.
How to honor motherhood?
Started by Anna Jarvis in the year 1908, Mother’s Day was known as a deep tribute to her mother. This day has now become one of the most important celebrations in the world.
Mother’s Day is dedicated to amazing women that we call mothers. Though they celebrate it on various days in more than 40 countries, it often occurs on the second Sunday of May.
This special day is held to honor the sacred role of motherhood, the bond between a mother & her children, and their influence on humanity as well.
People usually give their mothers or the one they consider mother many presents on this day. It is regarded as a small gesture of ardent gratefulness to their beloved one.
Flowers, jewelry, and scarf are the most common gifts. However, you totally can melt your mother’s heart with a unique hand-made 3D pop-up card with your handwriting on it. This present can help you convey your touching messages in the most meaningful way.
Mother’s Day is approaching and we hope that all mothers in this world can enjoy a full and happy ceremony by the lovely pop-up boards. Although one day isn’t enough to celebrate and revere mothers, it is still a good way to make them feel special and loved.
