Mother's day is celebrated across the globe. In Japan, they celebrate their mothers in June. In Costa Rica, their day is in August. In Russia they are recognized in November, and in Panama and Indonesia, they are honored in December. Whichever month or country, there is a day for mothers. Here in the U.S., we honor our mothers who gave birth and cradled us into the world. We honor our mothers who bandaged our wounds, and who listened when no one else would. To all our mothers, we wish you a very happy Mother's Day!
