Moms all over America may be facing a lonely Mother s Day this year. Most Americans are struggling to pay bills to pay mortgages and to keep up with the car payments. People are moving to different states for jobs and that means that most will not have the luxury of living near enough to visit mom. Or that most won t be able to afford to visit her. So that means only one thing your choice in mothers day gifts is now limited to flowers; the only gift that you can send to another state without fear of it being ruined.
Two years after her mother died in May of 1905 Anna Jarvis and her friends began a letter-writing campaign to gain support in declaring a national Mother s Day holiday. She felt children often neglected to appreciate their mother while the mother was still alive. She hoped this day of celebration would increase respect for parents and strengthen family bonds. On May 8 1914 the Congress designated the second Sunday in May as Mother s Day. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Mother s Day as an official national holiday. Mothers Day has been observed annually thereafter.
