A Day Moms Get Pampered by Children and Husband

"Everyday is our Mother's Day," said my Arab when asked about Mother's Day.

Mother's Day is celebrated on various days across the world to honor mothers and motherhood and express gratitude for the hardships they bear in bringing up a child.  It is a day moms get pampered by children and husband to show their love and respect for them. Most countries (including my country) celebrate Mother's Day on the 2nd Sunday of May. However in the Arab world, it is celebrated on March 21 (Egypt was the first country to celebrate this day).

Here's a tribute to all mothers of the world -- a music video of the song "Mother" by a Saudi rap group "Jeddah Legends". It was written by Qusai aka Don Legend, a well-known Saudi hip-hop singer and leader of the said group, to touch the hearts of mothers and at the same time to urge everyone to show deep reverence towards them.

As the Arabic saying goes, "A mother is a school, preparing her is like preparing a good nation." Happy mother's day to all mothers around the world -- hope y'all have fantastic day!
