Mother’s Day

There is always a history and a story to all that we encounter along our journey.  Mother’s Day has all of that and more.  Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced to the ancient Greeks and Romans who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele.  And through history, there have been other instances of “Mother’s Day” culminating in the early 1900s in the U.S. when Anna Jarvis, following her mother’s 1905 death conceived of Mother’s Day as a way of honoring the sacrifices that mothers made for their children.  And in respect for the history and also for the reason of giving thanks we continue the tradition all around the world of recognizing our mothers.  It is a good moment for all of us to stop and say thanks and show appreciation for those special people in our lives.  Happy Mother’s Day to all – those whom we know and to all who have had the honor of being a mother, we appreciate all of you very deeply

Loving life on Mother’s Day
