Last-Minute Mother's Day Gifts
It was Anna M. Jarvis of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who proposed a day set aside to honor mothers. Anna was especially close to her mother and wanted to honor her mother and all mothers. Her mother was a Sunday school teacher who faithfully taught for 20 years before her death in May 1904.
The first Mother’s Day church service was held on May 19, 1908, in Anna’s hometown of Grafton, West Virginia. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation making Mother’s Day a national observance, “as a public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country.”
