Mother's Day Quotes and Sayings from Husband to Wife

Anna Jarvis was not impressed by the commercialization of a day she thought should become a national holiday Anna Jarvis was not impressed by the commercialization of a day she thought should become a national holiday

Mothers need all the encouragement they can find.

Today, Mother's Day, we give respect and love to all who serve in the role of mother everywhere. Happy Mother's Day to all mothers.

The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.

According to CNN, Anna Jarvis is credited as the inventor of the holiday, and she wouldn't be too thrilled with just how commercialized the holiday has become over the years. Her parents have been gone for decades and my dad for almost 10 years, but she said they were all coming to celebrate Mother's Day, and she was getting everything ready. You laugh about it now, but when it was happening, maybe not so much!

Social media these days are filled with images of people yelling all kinds of nasty things at each other, of verbal and even physical confrontations between people of different ethnic groups. And I got my first handwritten card today.

I don't remember what it cost or even care.

For younger children, Mother's Day often means crayon drawings or hand-made arts and crafts for mom which is sometimes accompanied by a well-intentioned (but novice) attempt at making breakfast in bed for mom. I'm dealing with the aging thing OK, but there are times when I could use a little of that Ruth Lenton wisdom to navigate the reefs and shoals of life's latter stages. And to all the mothers who've raised them, we recognize it's often a hard, exhausting and thankless job, and we thank you for selflessly doing it anyway.


Mom taught me that life isn't flawless, and that you have to be resilient and rise to the challenge.

Ironically it was Jarvis' goal to celebrate her mother, but she never had children herself. After all, to coin a phrase from a best-selling author: "We are the only ones who know what her heart sounds like from the inside". I've volunteered for the Women's Resource Center in Wayne for years.

Grace: My mother taught the importance of the Golden Rule, to treat other people the way you wanted to be treated.

I know as I put this story in print, my mother is cursing me from above.

A mother is someone who supports and motivates us throughout our life. In return, the expectant mother of anything loves her child with selflessness and seeks God's favour only for his goodness and prosperity.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers and expecting mothers out there today! And I cry because I miss her friendship.

But flower, candy and card companies, as well as charitable groups, quickly seized the day as an opportunity to reel in funds, and Jarvis, angered by this, actually spent the rest of her life trying to abolish the holiday she'd created or, at the very least, restore it to its original noncommercialized roots. And the girl said, "Oh, yes, I learned by watching you".
