Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world, and Mother’s Day 2019 occurs on Sunday, May 12, in the United States. The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson signed a measure officially establishing the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.
Mother’s day is a wonderful day to show our love and appreciation to our mothers. Although for some, Mother’s Day may not look the same. It could have been your aunt, grandmother, sister, family friend or even your father that took on the mothering role. This week in honor of these women I want to encourage you to look around and see the women in your life that have helped shape you into the best of who you are. Celebrate these women and thank all of these special women for filling you up with so much happiness and love.
May this inspire you to share your heart with a woman you cherish. Let her know why she’s an inspiration and the ways she’s helped you to grow. Recall a memory or moment that always makes you smile. Tell her why there’s no greater gift than having her love in your life.
