Albany- Hundreds of moms were out Sunday afternoon celebrating Mother's Day. Many people spent the day at the mall shopping for special gifts or picking out last minute greeting cards.
A few moms reflect on why this day is so important.
"It reminds me of my mom when she was living. She's deceased now, but it reminds me of the good things that she has done for me," says Barbara Evans.
"Because I'm alive and I'm spending it with my best friends," adds Sandra Yancey.
Most mothers we spoke to said their gifts included lunch or dinner and of course a Mother's Day greeting card.
