Happy Cinco De Mayo today I just wish I could celebrate
by taking an all-day siesta ;o) Onto Mom's day which is
this coming weekend if you haven't seen. I'm pretty sure
that's the #1 busiest day of the year for restaurants
and given that it is on a weekend this year look out.
Don't forget you can treat Mom to something special at
home too. 

A great way hands-dowm is a personalized breakfast in bed
made by none other than...you! This is something Moms
often dream about and seldom indulge in so this will be 
a real treat. How about a COFFEE CAKE recipe just like a
bed and breakfasts would do? Try this...it's delicious
and not even a lot of fuss to make (although Mom will
think you went to a lot of trouble). It doesn't have to 
be an elaborate gourmet meal. Believe me, you could serve
cold cereal out of those individual boxes and the gesture
along would feel special. Be sure to take a minute to top
it off with a handwritten card to tell Mom you love her too.

Some interesting factoids....

Contrary to popular belief, Mothers' Day was not conceived
and fine-tuned in the boardroom of Hallmark. 

In the United States Mothers' Day started nearly 150 years
ago, when Anna Jarvis, an Appalachian homemaker, organized
a day to raise awareness of poor health conditions in her
community, a cause she believed would be best advocated by
mothers. She called it "Mothers' Work Day." 

Fifteen years later, Julia Ward Howe, a Boston poet, pacifist,
suffragist, and author of the lyrics to the "Battle Hymn of
the Republic," organized a day encouraging mothers to rally
for peace, since she believed they bore the loss of human
life more harshly than anyone else. 

In 1905 when Anna Jarvis died, her daughter, also named Anna,
began a campaign to memorialize the life work of her mother.
Legend has it that young Anna remembered a Sunday school
lesson that her mother gave in which she said, "I hope and
pray that someone, sometime, will found a memorial mothers'
day. There are many days for men, but none for mothers." 

Anna began to lobby prominent businessmen like John
Wannamaker, and politicians including Presidents Taft and
Roosevelt to support her campaign to create a special day
to honour mothers. At one of the first services organized
to celebrate Anna's mother in 1908, at her church in West
Virginia, Anna handed out her mother's favorite flower, the
white carnation. Five years later, the House of Representatives
adopted a resolution calling for officials of the federal
government to wear white carnations on Mothers' Day. In 1914
Anna's hard work paid off when Woodrow Wilson signed a bill
recognizing Mothers' Day as a national holiday. 

At first, people observed Mothers' Day by attending church,
writing letters to their mothers, and eventually, by sending
cards, presents, and flowers. With the increasing gift-giving
activity associated with Mothers' Day, Anna Jarvis became
enraged. She believed that the day's sentiment was being
sacrificed at the expense of greed and profit. In 1923 she
filed a lawsuit to stop a Mothers' Day festival, and was even
arrested for disturbing the peace at a convention selling
carnations for a war mother's group. Before her death in 1948,
Jarvis is said to have confessed that she regretted ever
starting the mothers' day tradition. 

Despite Jarvis's misgivings, Mothers' Day has flourished. In
fact, the second Sunday of May has become the most popular
day of the year to dine out, and telephone lines record their
highest traffic, as sons and daughters everywhere take
advantage of this day to honor and to express appreciation
of their mothers.
