Sunday Is Mother's Day. But, How Did It Come To Be?


Meanwhile, in the US, Mother's Day evolved differently, first as an isolated celebration by Anna Jarvis in 1908, when she held a memorial for her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. She is kind and patient.

I was always at peace because of the way my mother treated me, Like a little prince.

She ran the household like a business. The National Retail Federation estimates that shoppers spend an average of $186 on Mother's Day gifts - last year, shoppers spent $23.6 billion on their mothers.

The folks at not only have a Mother's Day sale going on, they've also added insult to injury with their tagline: "Show how much you love your mother with a vacuum manufactured by Dyson".

A good mother is, an embodiment of true love.

While it began as a political antiwar effort and a celebration of moms, Mother's Day quickly became a "Hallmark Holiday" - the company released its first Mother's Day cards in the 1920s.

St Theresa says 'a mother's love is in action. Mummy you are an angel in my life, God sent when she intervenes on behalf of what God would have done to protect the child. Then, select the bouquet you want from a local store that's listed and local couriers will delivery it to Mom's doorstep within the time window selected when you check out using your Amazon Prime account. Perhaps you can make her a delicious home-cooked meal or surprise her with a new saree to add to her collection.

One woman I talked to today chose flowers as a way to say "I love you" to her mom. For Moms who would appreciate the thoughtful gesture-helping families while fostering literacy-a donation makes a great gift.

Verbalise your appreciation. Thank your mother for all her love and care. It feels better to have the family when you wish to celebrate big achievement from your life. How is it that when they grow up and make poor decisions, rejecting their parent's advice and potentially the parents themselves, a mother, with a broken heart, can still love them?

For a lot of folks, these special days pass by in much the same vein as any other.

At hospitals serving the poor, care providers were brusque and lacked compassion, especially when it came to unwed expectant mothers. It promotes intimacy and leads to their virtues such as mercy and compassion.

This drama starring Susan Sarandon, Mira Sorvino, and Selma Blair shows the ups and downs of mother-daughter relationships through several interwoven stories.

Pray for your mother.

They say you need to have a sense of humour to get through motherhood.

Even better: Some of them have discounts and promotion codes, so you can save money and make mom happy while picking out the best flowers for Mother's Day.

The song that launched a million schoolyard "Your mama's so fat" cracks, this hip-hop diss track calls your mom (well, not your mom, per se, but you know) so fat that you can't even see her legs, among a plethora of other put-downs.

We all know mom knows best, but sometimes she knows more than we even realize.

In Muncie for Mother's Day? Again, Mother Theresa, referred to as the mother of all the living, had no biological children. I pray all of you are feeling that way this weekend too.

Our mothers, like our fathers, are to be honored. Let's celebrate this year in a unique style.
