Happy Mother’s Day from Native News Online

Published May 13, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO – As Americans celebrate Mother’s Day in the United States, Native News Online wants to wish every mother a Happy Mother’s Day.  As in other cultures, mothers have always played a significant role in indigenous families.

To some this day brings great sadness because they no longer have their mothers. Whatever your situation, it is a day set aside to remember out mothers.

I feel blessed everyday because my mother is still with us and turns 87-years-old this July. She continues to be a blessing from our Creator.

 

The driving force behind Mother’s Day was Anna Jarvis, who organized observances in Grafton, West Virginia and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on May 10, 1908. As the annual celebration became popular around the country, Jarvis asked members of Congress to set aside a day to honor mothers. She succeeded in 1914, when Congress designated the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.
