Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. It complements similar celebrations honoring family members, such as Father’s Day and Siblings Day.
The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Today St Andrew’s Methodist Church now holds the International Mother’s Day Shrine.Her campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War, and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers, because she believed that they were “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”.
My Mother, a superwoman i must say. How can a single person manage all her responsibilities and duties without the slightest error. So blesses to have such a strong personality in my life, a business woman who runs her own school, a gardener and has a small nursery of her own and its only her hobby. A mother, wife, daughter in law and a best friend of 3 siblings, whenever there is a problem we know someone is there always to give you the right path. O i missed one of her biggest talents a creative home maker, her every work say from sewing, craftsmen, decorating, cooking, it has to be unique and classy.
And of course as many moms the best cook, i just love her whatever she cooks and her presentations are simply awesome and playful from the swan apple to rose tomato every little thing has to be perfect in her own world.
God bless my mother and i will be lucky enough if i get at least a % of her talents and character, a very tough women though she says she is not but i know the biggest problem comes she is quiet and calm and always in the seek of searching the best problem solution.
May God give her the best of health and happiness and may she gets to teach my siblings everything she taught me!!
