I created this Mother's Day Lapbook a few years back, and I thought I would once again put it up to be shared.
It basically is the history of Mother's Day, how it came about, by whom and how we celebrate it today.
“For all the love you’ve given me,
For all the prayers you’ve prayed,
For all the tears and all the care
The sacrifice you’ve made,
For all I am or can become,
For all in me that’s true,
I want to thank you, mother mine,
For all to you is due.”
As we come to Mothers’ Day this year, it would be good to learn a little about how the holiday came about. Too often, we take for granted our Mothers, and too often we go through the motions of Mothers’ Day…trying to find the perfect card or gift.
Let us pause this Mothers’ Day to truly thank our Mothers for all they are to us, not necessarily what they have done, but who they are as a person. If your Mother has already passed on, in honor of Anna Jarvis, find a Mother who has lost a child and bless her.
