Motherhood & Mother’s Day

May 07 : 02 days till Mother’s Day

Did you know that every September, Americans honor military mothers who have lost a son or daughter during active duty?

Known as Gold Star Mother’s Day, the holiday has been set by Presidential proclamation since 1936 for the last Sunday in September.

Gold Star Mothers is the name of a bereavement support group started by Grace Darling Seibold, whose son was killed in combat over France during World War I.

Mother’s Day is a time of commemoration and celebration for Mom. It is a time of breakfast in bed, family gatherings, and crayon scribbled “I Love You’s.” So join our Mother’s Day festivities as we present a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Mother’s Day on May 09th!
