All About Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day has been celebrated for centuries. In ancient Greece, people honored the Mother of the Gods, and in the 1600s, Mothering Sunday began as a celebration to honor mothers during the Lenten season. The United States first celebrated Mother’s Day as we know it in 1908 when Anna Jarvis lobbied for a day that paid tribute to mothers. In May 1914 President Woodrow Wilson designated the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.
Today, Mother’s Day is celebrated around the world and is a day that we spend celebrating our mothers and our love for them. Be sure to tell your mom how thankful you are for her this weekend!
Here are some of my favorite quotes about mothers for you to pass along to your mom:
“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.”
– Abraham Lincoln
“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.”
– Agatha Christie
“A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.”
– Cardinal Mermillod
“The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.”
– Honore’ de Balzac
“It’s not easy being a mother. If it were easy, fathers would do it.”
– The Golden Girls
Happy Mother’s Day!
