Today -May 14th 2017 -it’s Mother’s Day.
(For those who did not know (including myself) the day was founded by a woman (and I always thought it was a man (!) called Anna Marie Jarvis (May 1st 1864) who held a private Mother’s Day celebration in memory of her mother, Because of her influence in chruch, the day became a celebration. And since 1912 after an association was founded to promote Mother’s Day in other countries).
