This Sunday, May 8th, is Mother's Day. A day to honor mothers and their role in society.
Like many, the relationship you share with your mom has its ups and downs, but Sunday is a reminder that no matter what, you love, care, and appreciate her.
Throughout our lives, in most cases mom is the one who has cared for us, taken care of our bumps and bruises, and been our greatest advocate. After all, a Mom's life revolves around her family! That's why she deserves this day of recognition.
The concept of Mother's Day goes back to the 1600s, but our modern day Mother's Day legacy began with a campaign in the US by Ann Marie Jarvis in 1905 when her mother passed away. She started a campaign to make Mother's Day a recognized holiday to honor mothers as the person who does more for you than any other person in the world.
Though the US Congress rejected Anna's proposal for a national holiday, even mocking her, by 1911 every US State observed Mother's Day and, in 1914, Woodrow Wilson officially deemed the second Monday in May as a national holiday to honor mothers. The second Sunday of May was also the day Ann Marie Jarvis lost her mother.
The following year, in 1915, the second Monday of May also became officially recognized as Mother's Day in Canada.
Spend time with your mom this weekend. Honor her with your siblings and the other significant people in your mom's life. If your mom has passed, why not gather with all the same people in remembrance of who she was and the impact she had on your lives?
Your kids, spouse, parents - even your in-laws - all hold a special place, so this Mother’s Day honor Mom and let the rest of your family know how much you appreciate them too.
Have a great weekend!
