Mothers Day Information

Where and how did Mothers Day Celebration start??  According to Wikipedia:
he United States celebrates Mother's Day on the second Sunday in May. Julia Ward Howe first issued her Mother's Day Proclamation in 1870 as a call for women to join in support of disarmament. In the 1880s and 1890s there were several further attempts to establish an American Mother's Day, but these did not succeed beyond the local level.[53] The current holiday was created by Anna Jarvis in Grafton, West Virginia, in 1908 as a day to honor one's mother. Jarvis wanted to accomplish her mother's dream of making a celebration for all mothers.
Now for the Mothers Day card...... Card inked, stamped butterflies, ribbons, embellished and embossed.
