Dear Mama, you’re appreciated.

This special day belongs to all mothers. The pillars of our livelihoods and the reason why we strive for greatness, women across the country are being celebrated on Sunday.

Mothers Day: A marketing gimmick we can’t complain about

The ‘woke’ in us understands that more than anything, Mothers Day, much like Christmas and Valentine’s Day, are age-old marketing gimmicks.

Advertisers have ramped up ad spend on specially packaged items and this matched with the sentimental attachment to our moms is all the convincing we need to fork out and splurge on them. Even though, economists would argue that this is the one time we ought to be saving, in light of the pandemic.

However, all mothers deserve the spoils they will receive today. All those sacrifices they make, the b*lsht they take. It hurts none to give her the recognition she deserves.

Celebrities pay tribute to their moms

Naturally, the timelines on social media have been flooded with heartwarming messages about mothers. Some of our favourite celebrities have also shared never-before-seen pictures and videos of their mothers, accompanied by sweet testaments of their love for them.

It’s honestly the cutest thing ever and we could not resist the urge to share these on our platform.

Here are some of the Mothers Day messages shared by your favourite celebrities.

We would like to wish every single mother (can’t forget the single dads raising their children) a happy Mothers Day and to pay our tribute, we will quote a famous line by the late poet Maya Angelou:

“I will look after you and I will look after anybody you say needs to be looked after, any way you say. I am here. I brought my whole self to you. I am your mother.” – Maya Angelou
