27 Dec Mothers Day
The modern Mother’s Day is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in May, as a day to honor mothers and motherhood. It was nationally recognized in the United States as a holiday in 1914 after a campaign by Anna Jarvis. In some countries, it follows the old traditions of Mothering Sunday. Sonora Smart Dodd came up with the concept in 1910, after listening to one of the early Mother’s Day sermons.
Mother’s Day has now become a day that sneaks up on you- when most people run to the store at the last minute to grab a non descript card with the impersonal words of “You’ve done so much for me Mother, today I say I love you,” and other typical Hallmark greetings. But the bigger picture of Mother’s Day is taking the time to say I love you to the mother figure in your life in your own unique way. Whether it is your wife, your mother, grandmother, or other female figure in your life that represents to you a “mother.”
At The Dragontree, we understand the unique stress put upon the body of a mother, as well as the internal struggles of a mother. “Mother – that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries,” T. DeWitt Talmage once said. That’s why every day is “Mother’s Day” at The Dragontree. A place that caregivers from all walks of life can come in, soothe their minds and body and allow us to take care of them for once.May 7- May 10 we’re offering a very special Mother’s Day package tailored specifically for the aches and pains of motherhood.
