Mother’s Day is celebrated to honor all mothers and express gratitude for the hardships they bear in bringing up a child. Most countries including the United States, Australia, Canada and India celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May. Mother’s Day came into being due to the efforts made by Ms Julia Ward Howe and Ms Anna Jarvis. The Resolution for having a
dedicated ‘Mother’s Day’ was signed by US President Woodrow Wilson on May 8, 1914. Since then people across the world have been celebrating Mother’s Day with joy and devotion.

Mother’s Day Prayer
I love you, Mom. I love your aliveness, your joy in living, your understanding, your giving.
And what I love best of all is that you love me. God of all Mothers, thank you for my mom!

George Washington, U.S. President

“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” Abraham Lincoln, U.S. President
