“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies”. That is Proverbs 31:10 from the Bible. And from verse ten to thirty-one, the Bible speaks about the one who “excellest them all” — a picture of a skilled woman with a strong character, wielding great wisdom and compassion for the people around her. The woman described in these verses is a wife and a mother, an excellent one at that.
As the world celebrates mother’s day with all the pomp, often people forget the importance of this most glorious occasion and would go on with the flow. When does mother’s day start and who pioneered it? According to Wikipedia, the modern-day celebration of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908 and was held by a person named Anna Jarvis for her mother as a memorial for her mother who is living at Grafton, West Virginia. Her campaign was to make Mother’s day as a recognized holiday and started the year when her mother died in 1905. Although she became successful in her campaign to make Mother’s day an official holiday, she later became resentful because of the commercialization of it. She got angry that companies will profit from the holiday.
That is one thing I wanted to point out somehow in here. As other countries adopted the celebration of Mother’s day, it became a profitable business to some. Around the world, every year people spend a great sum of money during mother’s day buying flowers, cards, and gifts. People would often hire a catering services provider or order food from a food delivery service company; they would also need tables and chairs rental company for their party at home. And with that, companies would gain from such expenditures. Even restaurant, hotels, and resorts gain from the commemoration of this celebration.
Mother’s day already became an integral part of the Filipino family and is added to the many lists of occasions that Filipinos celebrate. It is but proper to honor our mothers, and it is okay to join the whole world in celebrating this occasion. But be careful not to do it lightly. Do not take it for granted and don’t do it to go on with the flow. Mothers have given their best in every aspect of their life as a mother. Let’s give them the respect and love that they so deserve. Remember that we are not here without our mothers. So let us remember them not just on their birthdays or Mother’s day.
There are 365 days in a year to honor a mother, do not confine it in just one day. As we look around us today, children nowadays often disrespect their mothers, and that is sad and disheartening. Let us not allow this to be the norm. The Bible told us to honor our father and mother. Remember the time when you were still young? Your mother would wake up early in the morning to prepare your breakfast and help you start your day; your mother who spent sleepless nights taking care of you and tending with all your needs throughout your life as a young child, she changes your wet and dirty clothes and cradle you back to sleep. She is the one who patiently taught you to learn new things every day. She protected you with her life and shielded you from harm. For so many of us, we see our mothers as superwoman. Yes, mothers can and will do anything for her family. They are full of strength and endure hardships for their family. Hard times made them tough, yet their hearts are so soft toward their children.
