Mother's Day is an annual celebration of the family's mother and her unwavering commitment to her children's well-being. The children are invited to come out and express their love and respect for their mother on this day.
It's a little sad that mothers only get one day a year to be recognized for all the amazing things they have done and continue to do for us. This single day is insufficient to express gratitude for every little to big sacrifice she did, for her countless sleepless nights, and for a delicious meal she prepared for you and all of her children's and family's needs.
It is a story that began in 1905 when Anna Jarvis launched a movement to get "Mother's Day" celebrated as a day of the national holiday in the United States. Following her mother's death the following year, the younger Jarvis decided to continue her mother's mission and work and create a day to remember all mothers.
Today Mother's Day is no longer limited to expressing love to one's biological mother. Especially if they are not their maternal mothers, people express thanks to the person who raised them. Many that have lost their mothers commemorate the day in their own unique way.
