"A printed card means nothing except that you are too lazy to write to the woman who has
done more for you than anyone in the world. And candy! You take a box to Mother
and then eat most of it yourself. A pretty sentiment."

-- Anna Jarvis, promoter of the establishment
of Mother's Day and expert guilt-trip giver
Mothers--we've all got em. We wouldn't be here if it weren't for Mom!

Mother and DaughterThe beginning of Mother's Day in this country began as a fringe suggestion by Julia Ward Howe, a Unitarian and Women's Rights Activist, in a Proclamation of Peace in 1870. And the world thought that she was batty! How right Howe was because many ancient cultures including the Greek, Romans, and Celtics commemorated mother and creation with celebrations.

During the turn of the century Anna Jarvis picked up the fight to celebrate Mothers in the United States and dedicated her life to writing letters and influencing people to celebrate their mothers. It was quite a feat and in 1908 Nebraska Senator and Mom-lover, Elmer Burkett, suggested that the congress pass a resolution to establish Mother's Day, but it was defeated. Whistler's MotherMany senators were reminded by their moms about the 20 hours of labor they went through to bring the future law makers into the world for this, but it took another 6 years to establish a National Mother's Day! The resolution was signed in 1914 by President Woodrow Wilson to celebrate the Mom. Mama Wilson cheered as did the rest of the world.

This collection includes old time radio shows with moms of all sortspretty mamas, sweet mamas, mama's boys, unbearable and murderous mamas-in-laws.

Thank you to Moms Everywhere!
(Mother's Day is always the second Sunday in May.)
