The Origin of Mother's Day Celebration

Mother's day is usually celebrated on second Sunday in May. On 12th May 1907, Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia held a memorial service at her mother's church in Grafton, West Virginia. She also organized women's groups to promote friendship and health. This is where mother's day celebrations originated from.

As we celebrate our mothers, we must also ensure we make them happy by doing the right things in life. Your mother is the only person who doesn't envy your good progress in life. Other people may pretend to be happy with your progress but deep in their hearts, they don't mean it.

It's happiness for every parent when his/her child becomes better in future. As we grow, now it's our responsibility to work hard in everything we do for the purpose of making our parents proud and our life meaningful. As we celebrate our beautiful mothers today, what is that one important thing your mother ever did to you and you are honestly thankful to her?
