Have you ever wondered why moms are wonderful?
When we talk about why moms are wonderful, it is very common for our brain to search for a sentimental response at once. And it's not bad at all, because maternal love is inherent in conceiving.
But what very few people seem to realize is that there is a biological-love relationship between any child and their mother, this is because it is the mother who from her womb begins to send the child (by physiological DNA) the perception of be sensitive and need love as something fundamental to exist.
This is just one of the reasons why moms are amazing . They are beings that educate us even from the placenta to practice love, apart from representing in their fecundity genetic immortality that is transmitted from their child to the entire species that comes after.
So, is it necessary to celebrate Mother's Day?
When it comes to celebrating Mother's Day, many people have mixed opinions. There are those who say that it should be celebrated because of the importance they have in humanity, and there are also people who say that this is a purely commercial date.
We must tell you that, in an age of ultra-communication, economic liberalism and behaviorism plus the art-science of loving and a technocratic coldness, celebrating Mother's Day is more than necessary. More than anything, placing their loving expression before their children as an example of these wonderful beings.
Apart from other relevant reasons, such as the ability to anatomically inherit everything embodied in the DNA and other traits such as physiology, which could be translated as that thought full of love that every mother has when she finally gives birth.
And it is that if we start to ask each person what is their reason for holding a celebration for Mother's Day we could fill an encyclopedia of unique reasons. But the most important thing that will always exist, apart from its biological relevance, is the love that these beings are capable of offering.
