There are many ways you might try to describe your mom. Twitter users put this thought into action and the trending hashtag #MomIn5Words was born. As if Twitter doesn't limit you enough with 140 characters, this time users had to narrow it down to five words representing how they view their mom.
A true sincerity, that is not often seen on Twitter, came out. Responses ranged from admiration to joking about thoughtful ways their moms take care of them. Each took the time to acknowledge the work and care mothers exhibit.
The celebration of mothers can be traced back to Ancient Greece. The Greeks held an annual spring time festival honoring the mythological maternal goddesses. Rhea, the Titan daughter of the earth goddess Gaia and the sky god Uranus, was recognized as the mother of the Olympian goddesses and gods. While today, this holiday has become much more commercialized, the idea of taking the time to honor the mom in your life, who might as well be a goddess for the stuff she's pulled off, remains.
