Happy Mother's Day!

Mother’s Day History – Anna Jarvis founded this day to honor her beloved mother. It was in the year 1858 that Anna Jarvis started her efforts to help Mother’s Day gain commercial and political support. Mother’s Day Work Clubs were organized in West Virginia by Anna Jarvis with an objective of improving sanitary conditions and mortality rates in her area. Anna Jarvis had 13 children but sadly only 4 lived to adulthood.

All I am, or can be, I owe to my angel mother.

Abraham Lincoln
