Mother’s day which came from the holiday that was called Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom and part of Europe. There it was a holiday that was celebrated on the fourth Sunday in Lent when Parishioners returned to their “mother” church. On May 9, 1914 President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the Second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day in the United States. It was a day for the public expression of love and reverence for the mother’s of our country.
Here is a copy of that proclamation and in that spirit I wish all Mother’s a wonderful day with their families.
