Mommy, Momsy, Nanay... Mama, You are loved!

The first proclamation of Mother's Day was proclaimed by Julia Ward Howe as a pacifist reaction to the American Civil War & the Franco-Prussian war back in 1870. The celebration that we recognize today is after the memorial held by Anna Jarvis to her mother, 2 years after her mother's death in 1907. (from Wikipedia)

I thank these people for having founded a very special day for us to thank, honor and show our love to our own mother and all the mothers that we know.  Commercialized as it seems nowadays, being taken-advantaged of by most consumerists, I still believe that it is worth celebrating.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers! Saying that you’ve done the best job is an understatement of what you have done to us, your children and to the world. You are dearly loved.

I seem to remember reading about Julia Howe at some point though I don't quite recall in which history book I might have been reading. Didn't know she gave birth to Mother's Day though. Thanx for this,tidbit. <br />
Though now that you've tickled my memory I'll of course be spending countless hours looking for the reference to her that I saw. If I ever find it I'll try to remember to find this post.<br />

If you only knew how many war histories I own..........

I'm pretty sure it was a passing mention about her resistance and ambitions during the Franco/Prussian war. The only problem is I have 3 different books on the subject.
