To That Special Mom
Mother’s Day is a day that is celebrated in many different countries. The ancient Romans also revered their mothers on the day of Juno, the harvest goddess. In the United States, in 1914, a very special woman by the name of Anna Jarvis spearheaded the movement to have a date set aside to revere all moms in this country. Because of her, Mothers Day occurs on every second Sunday in May.
Every year, almost everyone scrambles to find the perfect Mother’s Day card with the perfect sentiment or the perfect mother’s day poem. Many rely on Hallmark or other card companies to do our work for them, while others are more daring and take months or weeks to write that perfect poem for mom.
The high tech sons and daughters choose to let their fingers do the walking over their keyboards; seeking websites that promise “the perfect card.” There are also those individuals that have books bound with personal family photos of themselves, children, family pets and events that have occurred throughout the years.
The do it yourself card maker will patronize either a small independent scrapbooking store or a big box crafting emporium. These shops make card kits that can be put together with some scissors, glue, colorful pens and miscellaneous embellishments. However the makers of these cards are still on their own to find a suitable poem or saying for their one of a kind mom.
