Did you know? The earliest history of Mother’s Day dates back to the ancient annual spring festival the Greeks dedicated to maternal goddesses. Early Christians celebrated a Mother’s Day of sorts during the festival on the fourth Sunday of Lent in honor of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of Christ.
In England the holiday was expanded to include all mothers. It was then called Mothering Sunday.
Today the festival of Mother’s day is celebrated across 46 countries and is a hugely popular affair. Millions of people across the globe take the day as an opportunity to honor their mothers, thank them for their efforts in giving them life, raising them and being their constant supporters and well-wishers.
“A mother is someone who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.”
Here are some inspiring stories our employees and their family members have about their mothers.
The Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center applauds all mothers and this week we honor you! Happy Mothers Day!
