Paintings & Stories: 40. Amma: Mother: Happy Mothers' Day!


Amma, the Hugging Saint, watercolor and graphite pencil, ©Heeyoung Kim


'Amma' means Mother. In almost all languages, 'mom, mama, umma, amma, ...... ' are among the first words babies learn. Phonetically, it is the easiest sound to articulate. When babies just open their mouths and let air flow, that is the sound, 'mama, mom, amma,... and so on.

Amma, the Hugging Saint, simply hugs people. Like all mothers do. Everyone feels it differently: some gets great comfort, some feel their anxiety released, some others feel simply loved.......

She comes to Chicago early July. I expect another heavenly hug from her, truly Motherly Hug!

My pray for all mothers!

  3. In the United States, the celebration of Mother's Day began in the early 20th century. It's not related to the many parties of mothers and motherhood which have happened throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek god into Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday party (initially a commemoration of Mother Church, not motherhood). Nonetheless, in some countries, Mother's Day has become synonymous with these older customs

  4. Mother's day is celebrated to reveal the love people have for their mothers. Mother's day is celebrated by gifting the mom things that she'll like. Greeting cards, chocolates, dresses, footwear etcetera are a few of the things that people present their mothers.
