A Celebration in honor of your Mother
Mother’s Day is a special day for each family to honor the foundation of their home, their mother.
It provides the opportunity to ponder and perhaps finally make peace with this relationship, honor your mother, spoil her with breakfast in bed, let her know how much she is appreciated, and to shower her with lots of hugs and “I Love You’s.”
This page is filled with ideas to make this Mother’s Day the most special one ever. I have included the story of Mother’s Day, very interesting presidential speeches, relationship and healing articles, and links to activities and pictures for the children to color.
The celebration of Mother’s Day originated in England and then became popular in America.
Today Mother’s Day traditions across the globe have grown to become as diverse as the people celebrating it.
“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
Stepmothers get a bad rap, even though they are wonderful people.

When the United States entered World War I in 1917, and George Vaughn Seibold was assigned to the British Royal Flying Corps, his mother, Grace Darling Seibold, began to do community service by visiting returning servicemen in the hospitals.
For some people, every holiday and event is stressful, so here are some ideas to de-stress yourself.
It’s not that Mother’s Day is stressful, but rather your thoughts and actions make it stressful. Do you even realize how much extra pressure you place on yourself at this time?
We all have childhood scars which often surface during family gatherings.
For some people, just the thought of seeing a particular person triggers them emotionally, making the lead-up to the day when they will be stuck in a room with that person an emotional roller-coaster. They will be more emotional on that day, and for many days after. What makes it even worse is they have to hide their emotions and behave normally to keep up appearances.
You already know how your Mother’s Day will turn out so you know what to expect – the uncomfortable moments, disappointments, conversations, criticisms, and the emotions that you’ll have.
All you have to do is think about Mother’s Day and your lifetime of Mother’s Day experiences instantly tell you the whole story of what to expect.
Would you like this year to be different?
There is a special way you can feel and share love with your mother or children on Mother’s Day, even when you are unable to physically be together.
Practice the following for several weeks beforehand, so you will be able to share this special gift easily.
We meet many people along our journey of life, but so very few really touch us, or we allow them to. This article is about feeling how much we love the important people in our lives, and telling them just how much they mean to us.
