Of all the things that could be shared about Mother’s Day, there are 2 things that are rather significant:

#1: The name of the day is meant to be singular, not plural. In other words, it’s a day to pay tribute to individual mothers, specifically your mother, but not necessarily all mothers.

#2: 40% of all adults still get advice from their mom before making a major decision.
