Mothers Day

Mothers day is a celebration to honor mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society.

Julia Ward Howe was the first to proclaim Mothers Day in 1870. Her Mothers day proclamation was a pacifist reaction to the American Civil war and the Franco-Prussian War. The Modern holiday was celebrated much later in 1908, where Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in America and then she started her campaign to make it a recognized holiday in the United States. She was successful in 1914 but disappointed with the commercialization by the 1920s. And now it is a holiday adopted by other countries worldwide.

 My Mothers Day Gift to my Mother. 

Orchid, the name comes from the Greek. Greek Myth of Orchis; Orchies the son of a nymph and a satyr cam upon a festival of Dionysios in the forest. He drank too much and attempted to rape a priestess. For this assult he was torn apart by the Bacchanlians. His Father prayed for him to be restored but the Gods assisted of changing him into a flower.

Most commonly found in Asia, South America, Central America. But also can be found in the Arctic Circle.

It is so hard to find the perfect card for your mother, as Hallmark makes so many but generally you can find that one perfect one that fits the right mother.

"Mom, for all the times you had to referee, I just want you to know...... It was never my Fault." Happy Mother's Day. Along with a small bag of her favorite candy.

And for all whose mother is no longer with us, does not mean you can't celebrate - put flowers on her grave. I have a feeling she'll know your thinking of her on Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's out there in the World -
