Tyree: Mother's Day: The untold story

Whitney Gibson one of three mothers bailed out ahead of Mother's Day greets organizers outside the justice center

The second Sunday in May has been the day we traditionally celebrate everything our mothers do for us. Here are their views ... For all the sleepless nights I've given her I promise to give her a life that would enable her to sleep peacefully every night.

Smith: The thing that sticks out in my mind the most is when I was a teenager, I was on the verge of perhaps doing something that wasn't in my or society's best interest, she was my enforcer as well. Though, I missed her much on those days.

My aunt played the role of a mother throughout my whole life because I never had the opportunity to meet her. I have seen her struggles and pain, but what I admire in her the most is her unwavering faith that fuels strength and hope in the family.

My mother passed away while I was in prison.

I wasn't an easy child to raise.

Mahika Sharma: Mother, I feel that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries. And like many working mothers, I was also the "go-to" parent in any and every situation. Mom's dogwood is now going into peak bloom, its lovely white blossoms dotted with a spot of bright maroon.

Mom's love lives on in many ways, I think of her when I hear one of her many favorite songs, she loved the sophisticated polish of the Glenn Miller Orchestra's String of Pearls. Every day should belong to the people you love the most.

Though I can never repay you for your love and care, I can't miss expressing my gratitude, love and reverence on this lovely day dedicated to my most special mother.

Some countries, such as Finland, use the day to celebrate mothers who've done something extraordinary during the year, while others commemorate great women from their history. You're always there for me, Ma. Or you watched her write thank-you cards to neighbors who helped clean up debris scattered by a storm.

The stories serve the theme that mothers do what they have to do to make life better for their children. With budget cuts, global humanitarian needs will likely increase even more this year. What can one say about one's own mother? When I gave birth to a lovely baby girl 14 years ago, it opened my eyes to a new level of worry about her well-being. What do I say? I interviewed some top CEO's this week, asking one question: How did your Mom influence you on your journey?

"I think, now, being married for eight years and having two kids, honestly the wife is the backbone of any marriage, and I have a pretty good one". You keep reminding me that of all the wrong decisions you made in life, I'm the only thing that felt right. We chose the top five and we're sharing them with you.

You weren't there when I first got into a serious relationship but you always guided me along the way.

The researchers warned that 'Care responsibilities not only reduce possibilities for female education and inhibit labour force participation, they also affect the types of jobs women do, how productive they are and how much they earn'. And because of her great love, she chooses to believe him over the knowing voice in her heart.

For each of us, the specifics of a mother's influence vary, but the profound impact a mother can have on her offspring is universally understood. There was a price to pay, too: You weren't there when I graduated from high school with flying colors but I knew you were cheering for me across the miles. She acknowledges that although healing is the goal, some people have been hurt to the point of developing mental illness.
