  • Honoring mom

    Sunday, May 14, is Mother’s Day, a day in which we honor our mothers. A day we observe, setting apart other days to give favor and precedent to all our mothers spanning the history of time.
    According to www.history.com; Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as Mothering Sunday.
