HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all of you hard working Moms out there.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

I would love to begin with a little Mother’s Day history.  I think it always fun to learn how and where these holidays began.  Here is the evolution of Mother’s Day:

It was first celebrated each spring in Greece in honor of Rhea, the Mother of the Gods.  Then, in the 17th century the celebration took on a more religious meaning.  It was a day set aside to celebrate Mary, the Mother of Christ, but eventually all mothers were honored and it was known as Mothering Sunday.  In the UK  Mothering Day is held on the 4th Sunday after lent.

It wasn’t until 1914 that President Woodrow Wilson officially proclaimed Mother’s Day a holiday in the U.S. celebrated on the second Sunday in May.  Mother’s Day has become the third largest card sending holiday in the U.S.  Did you get your card sent and was it homemade?

I want to send out a quick Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom.  Here is a very casual picture of the two of us this winter.  She means the world to me and has always been there for me.

I LOVE YOU MOM!!  Happy Mother’s Day.
