Mother’s Day is commonly known as a day for remembering female being as the fountain of love and life. It is a celebration of acknowledging and exalting motherhood as well as the role and significance of mothers in the family and society. Did you know that Mother’s Day originated from mainly two women, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis?
Julia sponsored Mother’s Day each year in Boston around 1870 to promote pacifism and disarmament with women. It lasted for about ten years. It is believed that Anna Jarvis organized the first Mother’s Day in Grafton, West Virginia at St. Andrew’s Methodist Church in 1908. Mother’s Day is celebrated with flowers, gifts, cards, a special meal just like thanks giving day or Christmas.
A day to show love to one who has devoted her energy, time, care and respect for as long as one lives. As goes the saying, “One remains a child of his/ her mother until the pass on.” Observed on the second Sunday of May, the day is set aside to honour mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, basically all women for their contribution to family and society at large. Let them know that they are loving, lovely and loved.
Take time to revive the relationship this Sunday. Tell her that you love her and would not have asked for anything else than to be her child. The sacrifices she made cannot be repaid, and words are not enough to express the gratitude.
To all the mothers, enjoy your day. We love you.
