Google marks Mother's Day with a special animated cactus mom doodle
Today, on the second Monday of May, is Mother's Day, which is being celebrated across the globe in a variety of ways to acknowledge the contribution of mothers to society and families.

The internet search engine giant Google celebrates Mother's Day this year on May 14 with a special doodle to all the mothers on its home page.

The Google's animated doodle represents the celebration of 'motherhood' and 'mothering' with a series of events related to a pregnant cactus and her milestones as a mother bearing baby cacti, looking after them and finally living family life with the grown up babies.

In the animated doodle there are six different GIF images depicting different important stages every mother goes through during her motherhood with the message that it is the mother's love, support and sacrifice that leads to creation of a happy family.

It seems that Google chose the illustration of a cactus mom to show that a true mom's love is unconditional for the child even if the conditions are adverse.

Mother's Day is meant to pay tribute to mothers for their contribution to humanity. Many think that as the first teacher of her children, a mother shapes up their future. Abraham Lincoln has rightly said, "All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother."

A mother is a well wisher of her children and this too has been endorsed by Lincoln. He had once said, "I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life."
