It’s time to say: Thank you Moms!

Happy Mother’s Day!
The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Her campaign to make Mother's Day a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905 but was not implemented until in 1911 all U.S. states observed the holiday. Ann Jarvis, Annas mother, had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War, and created Mother's Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers because she believed a mother is "the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world".

Today, we should recognize more than ever the work, effort and dedication of all mothers around the world. With children unable to go to school due to the Covid-19 pandemic, parents working from home and many other related issues, this has brought additional burdens to mothers. It’s the time to say ‘Thank you Mom’
