The Shadow League's Mother's Day Playlist

We don't have to just celebrate ideal relationships with flawless mothers living in a ideal world. I waited patiently, recognizing the signs of a mother in distress.

This Sunday, I will join the ranks of mothers everywhere eating burned toast in bed, accepting amorphous hand-made gifts, and sipping tea at the Mother's Day brunch option at our local bistro. She's been gone for 12 years now. They are still moms to me and always will be. Every one is different, yet the best of them all share the same trait - they love their children without reservation. As one could tell, my mom really likes me! Took me to school the very first day, gave me piece of butterscotch, sent me on my way. But for lots of people, Mother's Day is a tough time. I was her first child, her first "love", her first bittersweet moment, and her first AMBER alert!

Annually, on the second Sunday in May, we honour the woman we call Mom. We talked about the future and what we both wanted out of life.

I learned that a lady named Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in 1908 in a Methodist church in West Virginia, and that she had campaigned for the day to be recognized as early as 1905, the year that her own mother died.

Eddis made sure to explain that she wants her family along for the ride! Sonam Kapoor: My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.

You've got a couple of days to sneakily find out which are your mum's favourite flowers, or choose an assorted bunch in her favourite colours.

Thank you for thinking and worrying about us.

She loves to do crafts, such as crocheting or quilting.

Honestly, losing a mom isn't something a person can prepare for - there isn't a book or directions about how to live without her.

"Mother's Day means to me, just a time to reflect on what a gift children are to people". On Mother's Day, let your mom know how important she has been to you and that she will always be important to you. I will remember her smile and her laugh. Their kindness and encouragement provided me with hope and lifted my esteem from the darkness of my childhood. As my mother-in-law has helped build on those life lessons, I take those with heart too.

"Mothers day is just a lovely time here, we have lots of handsome fresh flowers plants, it smells great in here, and we have a lot of pretty things in here for all the mothers", says Monica Harrison, the owner of Winterville Flower Shop.
