We wish everyone the
Happiest Mother's Day
Mom's come in all styles, stay at home, single parents, working women, aunts, grandmas and more. All women deserve some love and thanks for all they do for children all over the world.
Mother's Day wasn’t officially added as a national holiday until 1914. You have Anna Jarvis to thank for making it happen.
Anna sought to honor her recently deceased mother and provide a way for families to spend time together. She started a media campaign, got financial backing, sharing the idea that women deserved recognition on the National Holiday Calendar.
Her vision for a holiday involved mother’s wearing white carnations as a badge of honor, families spending extra time together and attending church services.
Taking it another step, to Honor Living and Dead Mothers. Carnations of different colors can indicate whether you are showing your love and respect for a mother who is alive or passed.
Red and pink are meant to honor a mother who is alive and white carnations are used to honor a mother who is passed.
After President Woodrow Wilson officially declared the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day, Jarvis urged families to spend time together instead of buying gifts, presents, and flowers.
Give a hug to the Moms in your life. Tell your family how special they are, give them LOVE.
