What is meant by celebrating motherhood?

This is true: it was dreamed up by a greeting card salesman. Because we Americans are sloppily sentimental and infantile, we're conned by anything resembling a holiday into opening our wallets. If you don't think this is true, think about Halloween.

It also helps us paper over our guilt for recognizing she's bat-crap crazy too.

What are your rights if your siblings disposed of your deceased mother's will and sold your mother's property without giving you anything?

You have plenty of rights and your siblings just broke the law! When a person leaves a Will it's for a reason and the instructions in that Will should be followed to the letter whether all or one of you disagrees with the outcome. A Will must go into Probate. Probate makes sure all personal and property taxes are paid off, mortages, loans paid off and any credit card debts, etc. What is left in the Will (called "The Estate) is what is divided amongst the heirs that the deceased has put in their Wills. ALL HEIRS have a right to receive a copy of that Will. All Heirs (siblings) have the right to enter the premises of that home and divide equally any personal items of the mothers. I suggest you go to a lawyer and tell him/her you did not receive a copy of the Will (you may not be in it) and if you are, they will take steps to make the Executrix (female) Executor (male) pay up! Also, you can contest the Will through the courts. You're siblings are in big trouble if you are in that Will. Please don't sit back and take this, but find out if you were mentioned in this Will. If you aren't, and you were a caregiver to your mother, then you can still contest the Will. You better believe your siblings will want to settle out of court because the court system can hold up the process of releasing property and money for several years and usually people that do these things to their siblings are greedy, so they want their money. Go for it! Good luck Marcy

Who started the idea of Mother's Day?

The idea of Mother's Day is thought to have begun with an idea by a young Appalachian homemaker, Anna Jarvis, who from 1858 had attempted to improve sanitation through what she called Mothers' Work Days. She organized women throughout the Civil War to work for better sanitary conditions for both sides, and in 1868 she began work to reconcile Union and Confederate neighbors.

Jarvis's ideas influenced suffragette Julia Ward Howe to call for Pacifism and Disarmament by mothers. Ward Howe proclaimed the first Mothers' Day in Boston in 1870, calling for it to be celebrated annually from 1872. Commonly, early activities involved groups of mothers meeting, whose common factor was that their sons had fought or died on opposite sides of the American Civil War. Julia Ward Howe was unable to obtain formal recognition of a Mothers' Day for Peace.

Anna Jarvis' daughter Anna was influenced by both her own mother's work, and the work of Julia Ward Howe. After her mother died, the younger Anna Jarvis started her own campaign to start a memorial day for women. The first Mothers' Day was celebrated as a memorial to mothers in Grafton, West Virginia, on 10 May 1908, in the church where the elder Anna Jarvis had taught Sunday School. After this, the custom caught on, spreading eventually to 45 states (and later other nations). Finally the holiday was declared officially by states beginning in 1912, and in 1914 President Woodrow Wilson declared the first national Mother's Day.

Mother's Day is not to be confused with "Mothering Sunday" in the UK. Celebrated in March every year, this celebration of mothers began when people set aside this day to attend church services to honor the Virgin Mary. It gradually developed into the festival it is today, as honoring mothers everywhere.

What can you give your wife on Mother's Day if you don't have a lot of money?

Remember, it is not Wife's Day but Mother's Day. It is the kids who have to make the effort, but they may need guidance from their father. For some women Mother's Day can be more important than their own birthday.

Mother's day is not about money, but children showing love and appreciation to their mothers. As the father, remind the kids to visit their mother. As the husband, you could let her sleep in, and when she is ready to get up, you or you and the children could make breakfast and serve it to her in bed or sit down as a family to eat. Don't forget to clean up after breakfast. It won't be as special for mom if she is left with cleaning up the mess.

Here are some ideas to pass on to your children:

  • Planning a day for their mother and letting her know how much they all appreciate her will most likely mean more than anything they could buy.
  • Mothers always like it when the children offer to do a chore they don't normally do. Suggest they each give her a book of coupons for chores they will do when she needs them done, but only if they will actually do the chore when she asks without putting it off or making an excuse when the time comes.
  • Remind them to say "I love you" and give her a kiss. This is also something you should do.
  • This is another idea: I made an "I Love You" out of post-it notes and wrote a little something or drew something on each little post-it and then during the night I taped it to her door. Then in the morning, I went outside and picked some little flowers off our bush and put them in a glass bowl full of water and next to it put a little card. Then I went downstairs and cleaned the kitchen. She loved it, and it didn't cost anything.
  • Encourage them to get some flowers, either by buying them or picking them, and deliver them to mom personally. A nice bouquet delivered personally shows mom you really care much more than one that is delivered by the florist.

Here are some comments from moms:

  • For a mom, there is nothing greater than to see that her children can start taking care of themselves and her as well. It shows that they learned well; that is what the whole upbringing was all about.
  • Last year my family packed a picnic and took me to the park. They made me cards and didn't let me prepare my own sandwich or anything. We walked the boardwalk and such. When we got home and the kids were off to bed, my husband ran me a hot bath and rubbed my feet. It was just a quiet day with the family, but it was really great. I'll remember it forever.
  • I never understood, as a kid, why my mom would get choked up when I made her a homemade card. Now that I am a mom myself, I finally get it. It sounds cliche, but it really is the thought that counts. Just let her know you appreciate her.

What should you write in a Mother's Day card?

You should write something from your heart that pertains to your mother. It could be about good times you have had together, something special about your mom, how much you love and appreciate her, etc.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Roses are red, Violets are blue, sugar is sweet just like you or
  • Dear mum
I'm very thankful to God that I have a mother like you (caring, loving, being a best friend). And happy Mother's Day. I LOVE YOU MOM
  • Thank you for the great laughs we have. I'm just speechless.

you wire in card any thing with the help of your mind which you like to write
something meaningful to show how much you appreciate everything she does for you.

If your cousin is mentally challenged and his mother does not give him what he needs what can you do?

I'm not particularly sure what you mean but if your talking about basic needs then yes do what ever it is to help out your help will be greatly appreciated sometimes it's hard for parents to do what is necessary for their kids who have learning disability so yes help if you can. Social Sevices or Human Services wouldbe the people to talk to. If he is at school see if you can talk to one of his teachers. Persons who are mentally challenged are eligible to receive many forms of public assistance including Medicare, Medicaid and other government aid and resources. In such situations a case worker is assigned to oversee the personal care of the mentally challenged person including educational and physical therapy, special medical needs and so forth. If the family is not receiving such aid it may be due to the fact that the parents/caregivers are not aware of the assistance that is available. The state's department of family and human services can assist in whatever matter is needed, telephone numbers can be found in the "state government pages" of the local phone directory. Before making the conclusion that said person is not getting what is needed, one must be very certain what those needs are. If the person is not being kept healthy by proper diet and hygiene, not receiving needed medical or dental care, or there are signs of abuse or neglect it is a serious problem and it should be reported at once. On the other hand it may be a misunderstanding of what the person's needs are by those who are not schooled in the care of the mentally handicapped. One option might be to communicate to the parent(s) one's concerns about the care being given and try to find an equitable solution before involving outside agencies. Depending on the degeree of "needs not met", there are a few things you could do to help. Ask the mother if she is aware of assistance available for special needs children and adults. If not, help her make some phone calls to various agencies; state and town etc... Sometimes it can be overwhelming for a mother of someone with special needs, and a little help can go a long way. Some parents a against any help from "outsiders". If there is outright neglect or abuse, you should call the state and find out which agency could help the situation. No child or adult should be abused or neglected, and the penalty is higher for abuse/neglect of the elderly and hanicapped. If the situation is high priority (abuse, serious neglect, serious lack of ordinary care), the person may need to be removed from their current living conditions. ANOTHER POINT of view is that it is a FELONY to abuse and/or neglect a person with MENTAL RETARDATION,, you can help your cousin by contacting the State Agency that protects people with retardation. They will investigate and if they find the handicapped person IS being neglected, they can help the parent to meet the necessary laws of proper care and/or help them get out of that situation....Best of luck...you are doing your cousin a BIG favor by helping them out. Do NOT call it retardation that word is not acceptable any more. The question you have to ask youself is how your cousin is being neglected or treated. If the situation is minor and your cousins carer is finding it difficult to look after your cousin on their own, or even with the help of family, there are polenty of care services that can help. Asking at the school or asking a social worker, if they have one, is a good place to start. If the situation is harming your cousins development, or mental, or physical help you may want to bypass your cousins carer and go to through the school or social worker and they will be able to assess the situation proffessionally and set in place what supports or actions that are needed.

Hindi poem on nature with the poet's name?

Seekho by Sreedhar Padak

Phoolom say nith hasna seekho,

Phoumrom say nith gaana.

Phal ke ladhi daaliyom say,

Nith seekho sheesh chukaana.

Seekh hawa kay chonkom say lo,

Komal-komal bahna.

Dhudh thatha paani say seekho,

Mel-jol say rahna.

Sooraj kee kiranom say seekho,

Jagna owr jagaana.

Latha owr pedom say seekho,

Sabko galay lagaana.

Deepak kay jalnay say seekho,

Anthakaar ko harna.

Prithvi say seekho sabkee nith,

Sacchi seva karna.
