MOTHER’S DAY 2014: May 11, 2014

Mother’s Day is the day dedicated to honoring our moms in the USA.  Wikipedia had some interesting info about Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and 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 spring. (e.g., April–May in the northern hemisphere, October in Argentina, but northern hemisphere spring, May, in Australia). It complements similar celebrations honoring family members, such as Father’s Day and Siblings Day.

The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early 20th century; it is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a celebration of the mother church, not motherhood).[1][2][3][4] Despite this, in some countries Mother’s Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.[5]

In the United States, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May.  The first state to officially recognize Mother’s Day was West Virginia.

Again according to Wikipedia:

The modern American holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. Her campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her beloved mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Anna’s mission was to honor her own mother by continuing work she had started and to set aside a day to honor mothers, “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world.” Anna’s mother, Ann Jarvis, was a peace activist who had cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the Civil War and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues.

Someone mentioned that this year was the 100th celebration of Mother’s Day.  That is not quite true.  This is the 106th celebration from that first one in 1908 in Grafton, WV.

This post is one writer’s little dedication to a wonderful mom.

Friends, neighbors and co-workers–even spouses–may come and go.  But you will only have one mother.

Happy Mother’s Day, mom!
