HONORING ALL MOTHERS
All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.” Abraham Lincoln
It was not that long ago that the first celebration of Mother’s Day occurred, when Anna Jarvis, in 1908, held a memorial for her mother at St. Andrew’s Methodist Church in West Virginia.
It became an official U.S. holiday in 1914, and is celebrated yearly on the second Sunday in May. Soon after, Hallmark Cards and other companies started selling Mother’s Day cards. The Holiday grew, and grew until now, weeks before, all stores are filled with flowers, candies, perfumes and jewelry to give mother..
However, there is more to Mother’s Day than Gifts. It is a time to show your thanks for all the times she was there for you, and still is— with deeds done without asking —with kindness, compassion, and strength given you to cope with life’s ups and downs, and for guiding you through tears and smiles, all with an unconditional love.
Try speaking from your heart, thanking her for the all she has done in guiding you to become the person you are
Happy Mother’s Day to all Mothers… Paula
