Dirkje 1936-2001Again we come to that special day of the year when we celebrate Mother's Day. Julia Ward Howe was the first to proclaim Mother's Day in 1870. Her Mother's Day Proclamation was a pacifist reaction to the American Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War. The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in America. She then began a camAnna 1934-2001paign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s. Jarvis' holiday was adopted by other countries and it's now celebrated all over the world. (Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother's_Day ) Like any mother, I do appreciate the extra attention lavished on me on this day - but it is also a time to reflect on motherhood - being a mother and the priviledge it is to be a mother. I thank God for my children and the great relationship I have with each one of them. I also remember my mother (Dirkje (left) 1936-2001)who has passed a few years ago at the age of 66, and my mother-in-law (Anna (right) 1934-2001) who passed away in the same year as my own mother at the age of 69. Both of these women were great ladies of faith, and an example to me and my children. So to all you children - young and old, appreciate your mothers while you still can.
