The history of Mother's Day

The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in America. She then began a campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s. Jarvis' holiday was adopted by other countries and it is now celebrated all over the world.

She was an amazing cook, seamstress and most of all grandmother! 



 My Mom

I adored my mom, she was who I inspire to be like.  She has been gone 14 yrs as of last week.  I miss her every day.
