Happy Mother’s Day!

A lot of you are celebrating Mother’s Day this weekend, and I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and the important ladies in your lives a great day.

I just learned an interesting little fact. Anna Jarvis, the American woman who spearheaded the campaign to make Mother’s Day a recognized holiday, was careful to note that it should be spelled “Mother’s Day”, not “Mothers’ Day”. She maintained that “Mother’s” was to be a singular possessive, for each family to honour their mother, not a plural possessive commemorating all mothers in the world.

So with that thought, have a happy Mother’s Day!
