How did Mother’s Day come about in USA? According to the history books….it was started by Anna Jarvis, daughter of Ann Reeves Jarvis. Following her mother’s 1905 death, Anna Jarvis conceived of Mother’s Day as a way of honoring the sacrifices mothers made for their children.
On May 12, 1907, she held a memorial service at her late mother’s church in Grafton, West Virginia. Within five years virtually every state was observing the day, and in 1914 U.S. Pres. Woodrow Wilson made it a national holiday.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!! GOD BLESS all the MOMS, MUMS and MOTHER TYPES who nurture and love all the children in the WORLD!
And, DOG MOM’S TOO! ♥
