Mother's Day and golf are linked

Mother's Day is internationally recognised on May 14 to honor and respect the contributions of a mom for her family. Biological moms, adoptive moms, and foster moms; single moms, grandmothers, and godmothers; aunts and mentors and the fathers who are both mom and dad - whoever you think of when you think of Mother's Day.

The video features a daughter with the usual things she has to say to her mother, but how this short film ends is what will open you eyes to what being a mother is really all about.

The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia. I feel like one of the most important women in an individual's life is his or her mother.

I wished the grocery store clerk a Happy Mother's Day as we chatted.

It's my time to tell you that how fortunate and special I am to be blessed with a mother as caring, loving as you.

Happy Mother's Day to a special mother. The prospect of facing their mothers after rejecting an official Mother's Day may have been what prompted so many in Congress to keep running and build seniority. Have you bought your mom a gift yet?

I believe in love at first sight for you are the first person I saw when I opened my eyes and had loved you since that day dear mom. We did what she said every day.

I seems that a lot of people celebrated Mother's Day early last week. "So how about another one?" she said, throwing her hands up. There were a few posts and greetings on social media and I heard that a Sunday mass homily was even dedicated to mothers. Or give her a photo that brings to memory a happy moment. Her campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. She instilled morals, dignity and the Love of God into her daughters that they also share and empower others at their young age.

Julia Ward Howe, a Boston poet, pacifist, suffragist and author of the lyrics to the "Battle Hymn of the Republic", also has been credited with suggesting a "mother's day", as she organized a day encouraging mothers to rally for peace about 130 years ago.
