What is Mother’s Day? Is it really one day a year? Is it just another Sunday in May? Is it a reason to run to the Mall and shop for gifts for moms and sneak in something for yourself too? Is it a Mother’s Appreciation day? Is it another excuse to celebrate? What’s Mother’s day?
For you, it may be all of the above or none at all.
Mother’s Day is a tradition that started in the United States when in 1908 Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. A year later Andrew Johnson made the second Sunday of May, Mother’s Day.
For me, Mother’s day is more than just the second Sunday of May, it is an every day event. It is certainly beyond a day to give a gift. It is an everyday Gift! It is a day for Giving Thanks to Mom for being the Eternal Super Hero in our lives. Having my Mother is a gift I treasure every minute. Being the Mother to my daughter is a gift beyond compare.
So if you are a MOM, just know that you are appreciated and valued! Moms are superheroes — what superhero can make a child feel better when they are sick with just a caress? Moms can know when there is something wrong, or something good, or “someone” is hiding something or someone is cold in the middle of the nigh.
Happy Mother’s Day on the Second Monday of may and my appreciation to every mom every single day!
