Sunday, we celebrate those among us whom we call Mom or Mommie or Mama. Whatever we call her, she is one of the most important people in the history of all our lives. She brings us into the world and nurtures us at our most vulnerable times. She is simultaneously our biggest fan and our harshest critic. Her demands can sometimes be unattainable but are tempered with love.
Throughout history, mothers have symbolized things that we treasure: love, understanding, comfort and sacrifice. So Sunday is the day. Remember to coddle the mothers in your life – pamper them. Give them their due.
When you do call or visit, remember the three most powerful words in the English language: "I love you."
