Mother's Day, Sunday May 12th, is a perfect opportunity to show your appreciation and gratitude for the women in your life. With the hard work that these mothers put in every day and for all the little things that go unnoticed why not take the time and send Mother’s Day flowers to show your appreciation. Some of the traditional gifts for Mother's Day are to bring breakfast in bed, a beautiful bouquet of flowers with a heartfelt message, and some form of pampering and tlc to show your gratitude towards your mom.
The history of Mother's Day dates back to 1908 which was started by Anne Jarvis in which she wanted a day of recognition her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, who was 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. Anne, her daughter wanted a way to honor her mother and a way to carry her legacy as she recognized her mother as “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”. Mother’s Day officially became a holiday in 1914 however the tradition of Celebrating mothers has been traced for thousands of years in Greek, Roman and Christian traditions. The mothering Sunday tradition has shifted into a holiday in which children gift their mothers with flowers and other small gifts to show a small token of appreciation.
This Mother's Day why not send your mother or a motherly figure in your life flowers and wine to brighten their day but also include an indulgence of our award winning, small batched Trinity River wine.
