Mother’s Day is right around the corner. This day has been set aside to honor and celebrate the mothers in everyone’s lives. This could be someone’s biological mother, adoptive mother, stepmother, aunt, sister, grandmother or simply a woman who has made a profound and lasting impact in one’s life. I would encourage you to express your gratitude to that person this Mother’s Day. My wish is that all the mothers around us know they are loved and appreciated.
Mother’s Day began in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. It was originally intended to be a day of personal celebration between mothers and their families, and involved wearing a white carnation as a badge of honor, visiting one’s mother and/or attending church services that day at one’s mother’s church.
