Each year you wrestle with the same question: What do you get Mom? It would take forever to list all the things she’s done for you, and that’s not even counting the things you don’t know about! Literally from day one, Mom has been giving to you. So what could you possibly give her?
Mother’s Day has its beginnings in rather dark times in our country. Julia Ward Howe, the writer of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic, wrote “The Mother’s Day Proclamation” in 1870. During the Civil War, she called upon mothers to come together and protest the “senselessness of sons killing the sons of other Mothers.” Howe’s hope was to have a day when Mothers would unite and celebrate peace and motherhood. It took until 1911 before all states in the U.S. would recognize Mother’s Day, and President Woodrow Wilson would make the proclamation of a national holiday official in 1914. Today, practically every country on the planet has an observation for Mom.
