Why a Mother’s Day, a Father’s Day, a Women’s day, an Earth Day, etc?

Are we so totally disconnected with each other that we need a special DAY to remind us? Really?

Are we so totally disconnected with our purpose and our true essence, that we need something from the outside world to remind us? Something created from the mind of man?

Because Mother’s Day was just here, I will focus on that one.

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.  So what was happening before 1908?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         The first observance of a “Father’s Day” was held on July 5, 1908, in Fairmont, West Virginia, in the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South. They got jealous or inspired, who knows, to create their own day. Wikepedia says: Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.

I don’t know about you but I don’t need to be reminded to honor and celebrate my mom. I just did that, one week before Mother’s Day. Why did I do that? Just because I wanted to do this and that I could. And that is the whole secret behind honoring and celebrating someone. Do it when you feel like it. Why? Because they will feel it. They will feel if your heart is into it or not.

Especially when they are getting older. It’s like they have a seventh sense and they just know. They probably won’t say anything, and will pretend to be tired and that it’s time to take them back to their place, but they are much wiser than you and me.

Honoring and celebrating is about being authentic in your gifts. And for that you don’t need an official date on the calendar. You need to stop and be present with your love and respect for whom you want to celebrate, honor and remember.

Don’t go by the calendar. Go by your Heart!  Heart
