Hello, everyone! This newsletter is mostly going to be about mothers and flowers! I hope you enjoy it!
First of all, I would like to say Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers reading. Bless you for all you do for your families! I was blessed with the best mother in the whole world! My mom, Ruthie Hall, is fun, funny, sweet, and loves her family more than anything. I also know some of the very best moms around like the moms in my family, at work, friends, etc.! I love you all!
The very first Mother’s Day was actually celebrated in Grafton, WV. Anna Jarvis lived in Philadelphia in 1907 and went home to Grafton to hold a memorial service for her mom after she passed away. She did it at the church her mother attended to honor all of the service her mother contributed to mothers and women. From there, Mother’s Day grew, and in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson made a law that the second Sunday of May would be designated as Mother’s Day. He encouraged everyone to thank their mothers on this special day.
The oldest living mother lives in Catalonia Spain. Her name is María Branyas Morera, and she is 116 years old!
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, a Russian woman who lived in the 1700s holds the record for having the most children. She had 69 children! Many of them were twins, triplets, and even quadruplets! I bet she was exhausted! Lol.
More phone calls are made on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year! Get on that phone to your mama if you haven’t already!
Mother’s Day is the busiest day of the year for restaurants! If most moms are like me, the last thing I want to do on Mother’s Day is cook! Ha! Hope you are reading this, Jimmy!
Mother’s Day is the 3rd highest selling day of the year for plants and flowers! This is a great lead into our weekly update outside!
