How would I say Happy Mothers Day properly in Polish, my husband is polish and I have not been able to speak or write the language fluently but I am learning. I would also like some help in translating the below:

Mom, over the years,
I've watched
the wonderful ways
you've made life special
for our family...
the moments of love
and laughter,
the traditions
and memories
we'll carry with us
throughout our lives.
But most of all
I've watched the way
you've shown us
the true meaning of love
in everything you do.

Happy Mother's Day

If someone is so kind in helping me translate the above verse into polish I would be eternally greatful, my mother-in-law normally helps me but this is for her to make a very special home made card.

If I could also have some help with another verse this is from my children to their Babcia for Mothers Day:

Of all the Grandma's in the world
That ever there could be
You'll never know how glad I am
That God gave you to me.

Thank you very kindly,
Kylie2753

Try coming up with your own translations and then ask people for corrections, it'll be more personal this way (and educational, too).

Mamo, poprzez lata
Przyglądałam się
Jak wspaniale
Uczyniłaś życie naszej rodziny
tak specjalnym...
Chwile miłości
I śmiechu
Tradycje
I wspomnienia
Pozostaną z nami
Na całe życie
Ale najuważniej (<-this line is kinda tricky, but I think it reflects the original meaning correctly)
Przyglądałam się
Jak okazywałaś nam
Prawdziwe znaczenie miłości
We wszystkim co robisz

Wszystkiego najlepszego z okazji Dnia Matki

The other poem:
Ze wszystkich babci na świecie
Jakie kiedykolwiek istniały
Nigdy się nie dowiesz
Jak jestem szczęśliwa
Że Bóg dał mi właśnie Ciebie

OMG, I do hope you are not American as you will get slaughtered lol

In the Roman religion, there was a day to celebrate the mother goddess, and once Christianity became more popular in Roman culture this day merged with another idea of to honour the Virgin Mary and the "mother church".

Slowly over the centenaries this turned into Mothering Sunday, so my little friend not an America idea at all ;0)

I had no idea. I am Russian/Ukrainian Orthodox, and we do not celebrate such a holiday. There's a special day for Bogorodica/Theotokos, but regular mothers do not get congratulated usually ;)

Aaaagh not American although they sure as heck have commercialised it! In UK/Ireland the day originates back to the 16th Century. The concept of 'childhood' hadn't taken hold and many children were put 'into service' often for the use as domestic servants to the wealthy classes. They were little more than slaves but were granted a rare day off to visit their Mothers - how kind! It was traditional for the child to take a gift which hopefully they stole from their masters!! By the way I used "Wszystkiego najlepszego z okazji Dnia Matki' to a Polish friend of mine so I hope it's alright - thanks.
