Happy mothers day poems and pictures

We all know that mothers day is just around the corner, May 9,2010 to be specific.  Although in some country, they celebrate mothers day in a different date but in countries like US, india and philippines(to  name a few), they celebrate it on that day.

You may wonder when and/or started this very special day, it started centuries old and goes back to the times of ancient Greeks, who held festivities to honor Rhea, the mother of the gods. But in 1872 Julia Ward Howe organized a day for mothers dedicated to peace. It is a landmark in the history of Mother’s Day and in 1907, Anna M. Jarvis (1864-1948), a Philadelphia schoolteacher, began a movement to set up a national Mother’s Day in honor of her mother, Ann Maria Reeves Jarvis. She solicited the help of hundreds of legislators and prominent businessmen to create a special day to honor mothers. The first Mother’s Day observance was a church service honoring Anna’s mother.

And it became a national holiday in the United States on 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as a national holiday in honor of mothers.

So express your gratitude to your beloved mother a Happy Mothers Day!!!

Here’s a mothers day poems that you can dedicate to her.

For all that you have given me,
I can return but love. For you
Bound up the wounds I did not see
And gave me hopes and passions new.

I can return but love for you,
Whose unmoved faith my heart did move,
And gave me hopes and passions new,
And loved me till I turned to love.

Whose unmoved faith did my heart move?
The mother of my heart, not blood,
Who loved me till I turned to love.
And I became the soul I would.

The mother of my heart, not blood,
Bound up the wounds I did not see.
And I became the soul I would
For all that you have given me.
