Happy Mother's Day!

I want to personally wish a all the Mothers a Very Happy Mother's Day.

In the United States the holiday was created by Anna Javis in Grafton, West Virginia, in 1908 as a day to honor your Mother. Anna Javis wanted to make her Mom's dream come true by creating a celebration for all the Mothers. At first the idea was not that acceptable here in the United States but she enlisted the help of a wealthy Philadelphia business man named John Wanamaker and he helped her to keep promoting the idea to President Woodrow Wilson. President Wilson made it an official Holiday in 1914.

Laura, I did not know the background of Mother's day.  Thanks for sharing!  I'm in Colorado visiting my Mother and Dad for the weekend.  At 92 and 84 I'm blessed to still have them and in GREAT health.
