Our children live 600 miles away.  We visited them for Easter and will settle for phone calls on Mother's Day.

Since the passing off my Mother many years ago, this day has lost it's meaning for me. With my son i choose just to celebrate my birthday which is just a few days later. This makes it easy on him since he has been a way for a many years.

Finally found out that we are having a bar be que at my son's home.  He is making Mahi Mahi.  My husband is supposed to bring a salad and rolls.  (Guess who will be making the salad?)  I'm sure he will buy some rolls.   It will also celebrate my son's birthday which is Monday.

Did you know that the first official celebration of mothers in the United States took place in 1858? Anna Reeves Jarvis campaigned for a Mothers' Work Day in her home state of West Virginia to raise awareness about local sanitation issues. When Jarvis passed away in 1905, her daughter Anna pursued a national mother's day in honor of her own activist mom. Anna's efforts paid off when in 1914, Mother's Day was recognized as a national holiday by Presidential proclamation.

In Response to Re: Mother's day is May 8th:
My Mom and Mom in Law have been gone for awhile now so I have always done things for two of the older women on my street.If your mom is no longer here why not remember another sweet lady this Mother's Day!
