This is a little factoid I like, which you may or may not know:
So first off, don’t let anyone tell you this is a Hallmark Holiday that need not be recognized!
And if you are a mom, try giving yourself this gift, from Howe’s “Mother’s Day Proclamation”:
Let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of counsel.
Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead.
Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means
Whereby the great human family can live in peace,
Each bearing after his own time the sacred impress, not of Caesar,
But of God.
