Mother's Day

The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. She then began a campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s. Jarvis' holiday was adopted by other countries and it is now celebrated all over the world. In this tradition, each person offers a gift, card, or remembrance toward their mothers, grandmothers, and/ or maternal figure on mother's day.

Various observances honoring mothers existed in America during the 1870s and the 1880s, but these never had resonance beyond the local level.[6] Jarvis never mentioned Julia Ward Howe's attempts in the 1870s to establish a "Mother's Day for Peace", nor any connection to the Protestant school celebrations that included "Children's Day" amongst others. Neither did she mention the traditional festival of Mothering Sunday, but always said that the creation was hers alone.[7] For more information on previous attempts, see the "United States" section in this article.

Happy Mother's Day to all who are Moms or all who have acted in that capacity.  This is for all the (step)moms and "adopted" Moms that have been the Mom that some child wished they had.
I hope you all have had a happy day.

Knowing that this first Mother's Day without our daughter Terry would be rough, I decided to be pro-active and planned a get-away weekend.  I believed that being busy would be a good way not to let Mother's Day be a difficult day.  Hubby and I did have a good time on our get away.  While I thought of her throughout the day, I was able to enjoy my day with a few tears scattered here and there.

Hope all the mothering women and moms had a great day.
