Happy Mothers Day!

If you are a Mom, I would like to wish you a very happy Mothers Day on Sunday, 13th May. To everyone else, best you take note of that date – ensure your mom has an extra-special day!

Why do we celebrate Mothers Day?

The origins of Mothers Day, as we know it, can be traced back to the 19th Century. Ann Maria Jarvis – a social activist – promoted a day she called Mothers Work Day to highlight the work that her organisation, the Mothers Day Work Clubs, were doing to offer medical care to soldiers on both sides fighting the American Civil War. After the war, the Mothers Day Work Clubs shifted their focus to improving health and sanitation in US cities. After Jarvis death, her daughter Ann campaigned to get Mothers Work Day recognised officially – it finally was in 1914 and renamed Mothers Day.

The original spirit of Mothers Day lies in honouring our mothers, their impact on our lives and on society, in general.
