The celebration of Mother's Day dates back to the era of ancient Greek and Romans. But the origin of Mother's Day history can also be found in the United Kingdom where a Mothering Sunday was celebrated much before the festival was created in the U.S. However, the celebration of the festival as it is seen today is a major holiday and not even a hundred years old. Thanks to the hard work of the pioneering women of their times, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis that the day came into existence. Click here to read more: History of Mother's Day
Today the celebration of Mother’s day is recognized across 46 countries, families celebrating in their own unique ways, different times of the year. Millions of people across the globe take the day as an opportunity to honor their mothers, thank them for their efforts in giving them life, raising and supporting them in all their life endeavors.
I would like to give thanks to all of the mothers, moms, and mommies who may or may not be with us today but who have made a difference in their child’s lives. Without you, they would not know love. I would also like to personally give thanks to my mother. She who has taught me perseverance and to never lose faith in people and in life. She also has given me strength in standing up for what is right and having the courage to go after what I want. Because of her, I am a better mother, friend and wife. I would also like to thank my two children (picture below), Bradley (2.5 years old) and Shay (3 months old) for choosing me to be their mother. They have proven to challenge me in ways that no one else has and have given me love that no one else will ever experience. I have become a better person because of them, my heart is whole and my love is unconditional. To my littles, I love you.
