10 best quotes for Mother’s Day

Motherhood is not an easy job. They don’t get a day off; it is a 24x7 job and mothers are never off-duty. Also, mothers have to continuously put up with our tantrums without a single frown on their face. Thus, mothers deserve a special day for themselves more than anyone else.

Claiming just one single day in the name of mother doesn’t justify as their hard work should be appreciated every day, but then this one day makes her feel more important than the rest of the days.

The first Mother's day was celebrated in the year 1908 when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother Ann Jarvis in St. Andrews Methodist Church. However, it was only after President Woodrow Wilson signed the proclamation in 1924 that Mother’s Day became a public holiday.Since then, second Sunday of May is celebrated as Mother’s Day all over the world.

In honour of Mother’s Day, here are 10 quotes which prove mothers are thebest:
