While celebrations all across the world have happened  for thousands of years honoring mothers it was in 1908 in the United States that the modern holiday was created. Anna Jarvis of West Virginia organized a memorial for her mother who was a peace activist during the Civil War.

For five years Anna worked at getting Mother’s Day officially recognized, and she succeeded in 1910 when West Virginia was the first State to do so. President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day a national holiday in 1914 to be celebrated on the second Sunday of May.

Ironically shortly after accomplishing her goal Anna became disillusioned with the commercialization of Mother’s Day. She was even arrested for disturbing the peace when she protested at a candy maker’s convention. Anna wanted the day to be about honoring your own mother with personal hand written notes expressing love and affection and she was opposed to Mother’s Day Gifts  and cards bought at a store.

You can honor you Mother with such a personal note and also show some gratitude by creating one of her favorite treats or meals. There are of Mother’s Day Recipes to choose from, how about starting her day off in amazing fashion with Blueberry Pancakes or this homemade Cinnamon Roll Recipe.
