Heartwarming Ideas for Mother's Day


One of my favorite celebrations is coming - Mother's Day!This yearly event is held on the second Sunday of May to honor mother's throughout the world.

Quick Facts About Mother's Day

On May 12, 1907, Anna Jarvis held a memorial service in Grafton, West Virginia for her late mother. It is said that the idea for a Mother's Day originated from Anna Jarvis. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson made Mother's Day a National Holiday. In the past Mother's Day was meant to remember mothers who have passed away; but through the years it has evolved and now encompasses all mothers or those who play the role of a mother (such as aunts and grandmothers). Mother's Day is celebrated differently in other countries but the main reason for this special day is to honor and give thanks to our beloved mothers.
