A Mother’s Day Story

The story of Mother’s Day is a long one. On May 8th, 1914 President Woodrow Wilson signed a Joint Resolution designating the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. However it’s neither a recent phenomenon, nor it is the creation of card and gift marketers assumed by cynics of Mother’s Day.
To the surprise of many, Mother’s Day celebrations are said to have first taken place during the time of ancient Greeks and Romans, hundreds of years ago. Also, Mother’s Day celebrations in the United Kingdom began well before the tradition saw the light of the day in the United States. In the U.S. the efforts of Ms. Julia Ward Howe and Ms. Anna Jarvis are greatly recognized for beginning the tradition of Mother’s Day. Several other women made remarkable contributions to further the cause of the Mother’s Day holiday. Today, Mother’s Day is celebrated in more than 46 countries around the world at different times during the month of May. In some countries it is celebrated at entirely different times of the year.
Mother’s Day is internationally recognized as the day to honor all mothers and thank them for the services they impart for the benefit of their individual child, and consequently to the development of mankind.
With eight sisters, brave Sharif – the only son – took his Mother’s best advice and left Egypt to come to America on his own many years ago.
