Mother's Day

In 1912, Anna Jarvis trademarked the phrases "second Sunday in May" and "Mother's Day", and created the Mother's Day International Association.

"She was specific about the location of the apostrophe; it was to be a singular possessive, for each family to honour their mother, not a plural possessive commemorating all mothers in the world."

This is also the spelling used by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson in the law making official the holiday in the U.S., by the U.S. Congress on bills,[3][4] and by other U.S. presidents on their declarations.

Common usage in English language also dictates that the ostensibly singular possessive "Mother's Day" is the preferred spelling, although "Mothers' Day" (plural possessive) is not unheard of.

Thanks to ONE wonderful lady, ALL the Mother's in the world get to have ONE day of HONOR.

I had a really good Mother's Day. We went to church and although I had to sit with the sunbeam's and my little sunbeam boy was CRAZY...... I still got to go to Relief Society and it was really pleasant.

We held a Mother's Day Brunch at our house.....
My wonderful husband cooked,
and we had pineapple, apples and bananas....
It was lots of fun and enjoyable.

I feel like it is Mother's Day every day, I don't have to cook, (kev does it ALL)...
My kids do well in school, we have SOOO much fun together.
If I am sick they take care of me, even clean the house!!

Every thing I do, everything I want to do, and the Mother, woman and friend that I am
is all do to my KIDS. If not for them, I could not be the BEST Mother!
