history--Mother's Day


I didn't
know this.





In 1914, 
President Woodrow Wilson 
signed a proclamation
designating Mother's Day
held on the second Sunday 
in May, as a national holiday 
to honor mothers.
 Although Jarvis was successful in founding Mother's Day
Anna Marie Jarvis , 1864,  
Taylor County, West Virginia .
On Nov 24, 1948, West Chester, 
Pennsylvania was the founder of 
the Mother's Day holiday 
in the United States.



Hope you all 
have a wonderful
Mothers Day.

Happy Mother's Day to you too Yvonne, a beautiful post

It would be nice to take a trip down to sunny fla. to see your daughter?

I would love to move to a sunnier place, but my grown children and grandchild live here in the PNW.

Sending you a warm Hug and a garden of flowers waving in the soft spring breeze,

Interesting to hear about how Mother's Day was founded, Yvonne. It might be a lonely day for you this year with your daughter gone to Florida. I do hope that you are able to visit her often, especially in the winter! Please be sure to do something nice for yourself. I will be thinking of you. Hope you are seeing some signs of spring. Sending hugs xo Karen
