From the bottom of our hearts, we wish you a happy Mother’s Day! Mothers are the unsung heroes who help us in ways both big and small. Let us use this day as a reminder to tell our moms just how much we love them and how important they are to us.
Mother’s Day became an official holiday in the United States after Anna Jarvis held a memorial service to honor her own mother and all other mothers in 1908. Thanks to her efforts to make it an official public holiday, the president of the United States proclaimed it an official national holiday that would take place every second Sunday in the month of May in 1914. Anna Jarvis wanted a day to honor “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”, which for many is your mother. Take this day to show your mother or anyone who is like a mother to you how much you appreciate everything that they do.
Mitch Albom, the author of For One More Day, put it best:
“When you look into your mother’s eyes,
you know that is the purest love
you can find on earth.”
