Happy (early) Mother’s Day! Today I was thinking about this special holiday, and I wanted to share a few fun Mother’s Day facts I uncovered:
· Did you know the first Mother’s Day was celebrated in 1907 and was established by Anna Marie Jarvis? Jarvis devoted her life to establishing Mother's Day as a national after her mother’s death in 1905.
· Did you know that Mother’s Day holidays are also observed in several other countries? "Mothering Sunday" is celebrated in the UK and Ireland on the fourth Sunday of Lent.
· Did you know in China most names begin with a character signifying mother which honors the maternal heritage? Every day is a day to celebrate your mother!
I would like to also extend my gratitude to mothers nationwide – especially those whom I have had the pleasure of working with. You all encompass a loving and caring nature. This holiday reminds my team and me of why we are in the business we love – to help others achieve the gift of motherhood.
