The second Sunday of May each year has been celebrated as Mother’s Day since an early 20th century. Founded by Ann Jeeves Jarvis, the day commemorates the mother of the family, the maternal bond a woman shares with her children, and the influence of mothers in the society. Being a mother is one of the most empowering experiences. Bringing a human being to life and then contributing significantly to their upkeep and development is a feat not everyone can boast of achieving, yet mothers do it so effortlessly.
