We thank God for them and strive to love more like them.

The modern holiday was first celebrated in 1907, when Anna Jarvis
held the first Mother’s Day
service of worship at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia.] Andrew’s Methodist
Church now holds the
International Mother’s Day Shrine. 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.
