Happy Mother's Day!

May 8th, 2016

Don't forget to let your mother know how much you care about her this Sunday, May 8th. Take a little time out of your busy schedule to treat her to a nice dinner or simply give her a phone call!

We all know that this holiday honors the love and hard work of mothers, but did you know that celebrating motherhood originated a long time ago? Mothers' Day began with the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals to honor mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. Later on, "Mothering Sunday," an early Christian festival that fell on the fourth Sunday in Lent, was celebrated in the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe. On this day, people returned for a special service at their "mother church" and children gave their mothers flowers to show their appreciation.

In the United States, Mother's Day was founded in 1908 by social activist Anna Jarvis, who honored her mother and motherhood in a memorial ceremony at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church (now the International Mother's Day Shrine) in Grafton, West Virginia. In 1914, Mother's Day became an official national holiday. Ironically, Jarvis later dedicated much of her time and effort to attempt to remove the holiday, because she denounced the commercialization of Mother's Day.

We hope you all have a great Mother's Day and enjoy these lovely craft ideas linked below:

Inexpensive gifts that moms will love!

May 6th, 2009

Lady with flower

Here are some Mother's Day gift ideas that are inexpensive and meaningful from some of the mothers at W.D.G.

1.) Give her a bunch of handpicked flowers
2.) Breakfast-in-bed
3.) Let mom sleep in (and maybe also breakfast in bed)
4.) Bring mom her favorite coffee or morning beverage
5.) A booklet of "I will do __(chore)_____ for you" certificates
6.) Surprise her with a day-trip to a neighboring town that you don't normally go to; experience the local flavor by checking out the stores, historical buildings, parks, and scenery
7.) Buy her a large single cookie from a local bakery and use frosting or food safe gel to write her a special note
8.) Wash and vacuum her car
9.) A hand-written, heart felt letter of what your mom means to you ( believe us, it can mean a LOT more than store-bought cards)

And last, but not least,

10.) Give the moms in your life a HUG and tell them that you LOVE them!
