Happy Mother's Day

A Celebration In Honor of All Mothers


Before I go any further, I would like to wish my beloved mum:
"Happy Mother's Day"
I couldn't send in fresh flowers or hand-made card, but I would like to let you know that you are the best mum anyone can find! :)
Mother's Day is a time of commemoration and celebration for Mom. It is a time of breakfast in bed, family gatherings, and crayon scribbled 'I Love You's'. Mother's Day is celebrated to honor all mothers and express gratitude for the hardships they bear in bringing up a child. Most countries including US, Australia, Canada and India celebrate Mothers Day on the second Sunday of May.
Mother Day came into being due to the efforts made by Ms Julia Ward Howe and Ms Anna Jarvis. The Resolution for having a dedicated 'Mother's Day' was signed by US President Woodrow Wilson on May 8, 1914. Since then people across the world have been celebrating Mothers Day with joy and devotion.
