A mother’s love is truly unique. There is no bond quite like the bond of mother and child, and I say that as the mom of four sons. My love for them is so deep and intense. A mother’s love has no end and there really is nothing quite like it. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for my sons. Now my heart is bursting with love as a grandma to my eight little loves and I’m so proud of my daughters-in-law who are amazing mommies!!
What is the history of Mother’s Day?
We have been officially honoring moms for over one hundred years now. The history of Mother’s Day dates back as early as 1868 when a committee to establish Mother’s Friendship Day was created by Ann Jarvis. The first proclamation by Julia Howe, asking women everywhere to join together for world peace, a prelude to the special day we now celebrate, was written in 1870. In 1908, the first Mother’s Day was celebrated when Anna held a memorial for her mother Ann. And several years later in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation to officially recognize Mother’s Day as a national day honoring and celebrating mothers in our country. And now every year a designated day is set aside, on the second Sunday in May, to honor moms in the United States, the founding country of Mother’s Day.
