Our tribute to all those Special Moms...Happy Mothers Day
Celebrating 102 years of the official declaration of Mothers Day…..
most of us celebrate Mother's Day with little awareness of how it began.
But we can identify with the respect, love and honor
that Anna Jarvis MOTHER'S DAY PROMOTER displayed over a century ago to have Mother's Day recognized as a national
Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia who is credited with bringing about the official observance of Mother's Day.
Her campaign to establish such a holiday began as a remembrance of her Mother. Inspired by hearing her mother, Ann Marie
Reeves Jarvis ….expressing hope that a memorial would be established for all mothers, living and dead.
In 1914, the U.S. House and Senate
approved a resolution proclaiming the second Sunday of May as Mother's Day. President Woodrow Wilson endorsed it,
and Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan proclaimed it as a national holiday.
For the first official Mother's Day service
, Anna sent 500 white carnations to the church to be given to the participating mothers and for many years Anna sent more
than 10,000 carnations to her Mothers' church... 'MOTHER CHURCH' -- Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton,
W. Va., is recognized as the "mother church" of Mother's Day in the United States. Carnations –- red for
the living and white for the deceased -– became symbols of the purity, strength and endurance of motherhood.
