The second Sunday in May is the day many countries around the world, including the United States, set aside for the celebration of mothers. Since most of our moms tend to indulge us every other day of the year, it is only right that at least one day is for the moms!

So, even if your mother was a brood parasite who left you to be raised by another bird family, she probably did it out of love. Take a moment to tell her that you love her back.

Happy Mother’s Day!
