The beginning of Mother’s Day was the project of ANNA JARVIS, who, in 1905; the day her mother died, wanted to honor her, and held a public memorial in Grafton, West Virginia, her mother’s hometown. Ms. Jarvis continued to campaign for an annual holiday, acknowledging parents, and it was first observed nationwide on May 10, 1908. Mother’s Day is always on the second Sunday of May each year, as an acknowledgment of the contributions made by all parents in America.
A little Prose in honor of Mothers:
It is wonderful to know that our family
Is held together by a chain of love
That is so strong it will never be broken
Because you are the Strongest Link
HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY TO ALL MOMS
