    My mummy
    Everyone's Mother
    Learnt love from you
    when required you hugged me and loved me.
    Your ears always listened the voice of my heart
    You always realized and gave me your shoulder to weep and to laugh
    Caught me by hands when I was falling
    Oh!mother you are great next to Almighty
    but for me you are in deep corner of my heart.

    This year is the 100th anniversary of the first Mother's Day proclamation made by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. According to the History Channel http://www.history.com/this-da.....ay-holiday
    The idea for a 'Mother's Day' is credited by some to Julia Ward Howe (1872) and by others to Anna Jarvis (1907), who both suggested a holiday dedicated to a day of peace.

    "Many individual states celebrated Mother's Day by 1911, but it was not until Wilson lobbied Congress in 1914 that Mother's Day was officially set on the second Sunday of every May."

    A salute to all the Mothers! Artistic
    And thanks for the beautiful graphic, djhciskoski, and the lovely poem, siggy38!

      And here's a little trivia about Mother’s Day:
      ♥ Historically, more phone calls were made on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year.
      ♥ Mother’s Day is the busiest day of the year for restaurants, and the third-largest holiday for sending cards.
      ♥ A mother changes 7,300 diapers by the time her baby reaches its 2nd birthday. If each change takes 2 minutes and 5 seconds, that adds up to three 40-hour work weeks in a year!
      ♥ The average preschooler requires mom’s attention once every 4 minutes, or 210 times a day!
      How did you celebrate?
