Together, let’s honor the women who raised us—and all the mothers who sacrificed for their children.

THE HISTORY OF MOTHER’S DAY
The greatest love is a mother’s; Then comes a dog’s, then comes a sweetheart’s.
Although the custom of setting aside a day to honor mothers has ancient roots, our observance of Mother’s Day mainly came about through the efforts of a devoted daughter, Anna M. Jarvis.
After the death of her own mother in 1905, Jarvis wanted to recognize the sacrifices mothers made for their children. She organized the first official Mother’s Day celebration in May 1908 at a Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia.
On May 8, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating the second Sunday in May Mother’s Day, and within a few years, the idea gained worldwide prominence.
10 WAYS TO CELEBRATE Mothers Day
1. Bring mom flowers! How about a bouquet with flowers that symbolize your relationship?
2. Give your mother a live plant. If your mom is a green thumb, consider giving her a new plant for her collection.
3. Design and plant a garden.
Give her the gift of a small garden. You can buy the plants and also plant them in the ground.
4. Bring mom breakfast in bed! How about a chocolate croissant from your local bakery?
5. Cook mom a special dinner! Think about her favorite food. Here are some yummy recipes passed down through the generations—made by moms and grandmothers!
6. Bake a cake! Traditionally, children in England always baked a cake for their Mother’s Day—called Mothering Sunday. If you like this tradition, here’s a truly delicious (and better than boxed) cake recipe: Chocolate Mousse Cake. We also love Nana’s Funny Cake.
7. Make a homemade gift. Mothers love gifts from the heart! Here are a few simple ideas:
