From all of us at Extra Mile Powerwashing, we wish every mom a Happy Mother’s Day!
We know how important moms are to every household and we want to take time to celebrate each and every mother on their special day. The hard work they put in to build homes should never be taken for granted. If you don’t know what to get your mom on Mother’s Day (a pressure washing of her home should always be considered), at least take time to tell her how special she is and how much she means to you.
Did You Know: The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. Her campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Ann Jarvis had been a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the American Civil War, and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues. Anna Jarvis wanted to honor her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honor all mothers, because she believed that they were “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world.”
In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day, held on the second Sunday in May, as a national holiday to honor mothers. Jarvis’ holiday was adopted by other countries, and it is now celebrated all over the world.
