In 1912, Anna Jarvis created Mother’s day as a day for each family to honor its mother. She trademarked the phrases “second Sunday in May” and “Mother’s Day”, and created the Mother’s Day International Association.
She was specific about the location of the apostrophe; it was to be a singular possessive, for each family to honour their mother, not a plural possessive commemorating all mothers in the world.
On Mother’s Day we honour the woman who nurtures our family, leads us to our first day of school, and shares in each achievement. She is the superwoman of the household.
Make sure you Mom knows how much you love and appreciate her. Make her breakfast in bed, take her out for lunch. Send her a special gift today! Click here.
This Mother’s Day, be sure to treat her extra special.
