Mother’s Day, a day to honour mothers in our family, a day to honour the bond, the motherhood and beautiful influence they cast upon the world.
The first mother’s day was celebrated in 1908, during a memorial of Ann Reeves Jarvis, mother of Anna Jarvis, which was held by her daughter at St. Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Ann Jarvis created Mother’s Day Work Club to help the soldiers from both sides during the American Civil Wars.
Anna Jarvis, her daughter wanted to honor her mother’s work and wanted to keep aside one day just for mothers all over the world because she thought that the only person who did more of us than anyone in the world is our mothers. After all, our mother is the reason we are existing in this world and she deserves our love and respect. She has always been a constant source of inspiration for us.
There are several ways you can make your mother feel special. During these days, where the whole country is on lockdown, going out seems like an impossible idea. Though there are many ways in which you could celebrate this day safely at home.
