Happy Mother’s Day – 2018

 

It is time to celebrate Mother’s Day!   It is a beautiful spring day to celebrate and appreciate our mothers! I know that I am thankful for a great Mom who has not only supported me but is and terrific role model, my best friend and an amazing grandma!

Interestingly, Mother’s Day, as we know it, was initiated in the 1850s as a way to improve sanitary conditions and decrease infant mortality.  After the Civil War, this led to Mother’s Friendship Day as a way of promoting peace.  The celebration of Mother’s Day has led to the commercial success of this special day.

In considering the history of this day, I reflected on some of the books that I have read since last mother’s day with mom’s and grandmothers.

I hope that readers get to spend some time with their mom, their kids or special role models today!
