Many children would concur with Abraham Lincolnâs famous tribute to his mother, “All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” Of course motherly love and devotion should be celebrated year-round, but having a holiday dedicated to moms helps kids show their gratitude and affection during this special day. And if dads decide to take the family on a vacation for the occasion, mothers will feel even more appreciated!
