Gve in the spirit of Anna Jarvis, the mother of Mother's Day

But perhaps in some small way, I'll find a way to celebrate my first Mother's Day without my Mom, knowing with certainty that I'm really not without her, but that she's still in my heart, and that one day we'll be together again. Mother is the first teacher. Mother's Day can be a lovely remembrance of the precious women in our lives. Many lawmakers also joked saying if they allow Mother's Day there will more holidays being asked for Mother in Law's day, Sister in Law's days, etc. Children, or perhaps husbands, take mothers out to eat so she doesn't have to cook on that one day of the year.

Treat your wonderful mom to some laughs this Mother's Day by sharing your favorite meme with her via Facebook, Twitter, or text.

Savage said she would like some peace in her home for Mother's Day. Anna Maria donated 500 white carnations for all those who attended.

Ingrid Johnson wouldn't have had much of a Mother's Day without the group North York Moms.

That's what most mothers do and we ought to respect them.

When I look back over my Mom's life, so many things stand out. We seldom see the value of our mom even though she's around us. "R" means right, and right she'll always be.

Let's make them feel special not only this day but every day coming ahead. I was curious as to the origins of this day, so I did what you do in 2017.

Plainfield, I hope you'll take a moment to say thank you to the women in your life who love you in that special way mothers do. In fact, protesting the commercialization of Mother's Day became her life's unlikely and futile work, ending with her death in a Philadelphia sanitarium in the late 1940s. She taught me how to quilt, and I love it.

Sometimes you need to thank God for what didn't happen. The healing, healthy love of a mother can mean the world to the children and to her children's children. Or, if you really want to be old school about it, print one out and put it in a card. This is the woman who not only gave you life, but also helped you grow from an insecure girl into the confident woman you are today. Even those who don't get along with their parents are still commanded to honor them. Your strength and love has guided me and gave me wings to fly. The prospect of facing their mothers after rejecting an official Mother's Day may have been what prompted so many in Congress to keep running and build seniority.
