For billions of people, their mother is the most influential person in their life. A mother is the first person that many children enter into a deep relationship with. It's no wonder that children and adults look for creative ways to say Happy Mother's Day. Here at Herbal Goodness, mother's day is especially sweet because it was while she was carrying her child that Herbal Goodness' founder, Dr. Unoma Okorafor, received the idea to launch the business that offers organic super foods, teas, extracts and supplements to adults seeking to either improve their health or maintain good health.
Motherhood And Herbal Goodness
In fact, Herbal Goodness' founder was pregnant with her child when she began her search for healthy, organic food like papaya and guava, two of the super foods sold right here at Herbal Goodness. Today, Dr. Unoma Okorafor extends more than Happy Mother's Day wishes to you. She and the Herbal Goodness team aim to share the benefits of non-GMO, organic herbs, teas, extracts and fruit with you as you take ownership of your overall health.
Ironically, Happy Mother's Day was started as a holiday by the mother of Anna Jarvis, a social activist, to celebrate and support all mothers, including sisters, aunt, cousins and women who had miscarried or lost a child. Considering that there are millions of women who have had these experiences, the larger community focus of the holiday's original roots makes sense. Time shares that Anna Jarvis' mother initially had the idea to start a day to support and honor mothers.
Anna's mother had 13 children. However, only four of her children survived childhood and lived to become adults.1 Back then, 15% to 30% of children living in the Appalachian area in the United States where the Jarvis family lived, didn't get to celebrate their first birthday. During those early mother's day events, doctors were invited to educate local mothers on ways to support and improve their children's health, a step that is helpful whether women are celebrating Happy Mother's Day in English, Happy Mother's Day in Spanish or another global language.
Happy Mother's Day Sister
In addition to making Happy Mother's Day a time to educate mothers on how they could practice good hygiene and strengthen and support their children's health, Anna Jarvis' mother wanted to use the day to focus on the matchless service that mothers give to their children and families. And, this is how the day includes all women who have carried a child in their womb. In fact, it's what makes Happy Mother's Day Sister so special.
Before mother's day became an official holiday, three women championed the celebration. Among those women are Ann Reeves Jarvis, Julia Ward Howe and Anna M. Jarvis (daughter of Anna Reeves Jarvis). Julia Howe was a poet, reformer and woman who volunteered with the U. S. Sanitary Commission.2 She pushed for the hygiene and care of soldiers and hospital cleanliness.
Today, Happy Mother's Day is celebrated by families in countries around the world. For example, women, men and children living in the United States, South Africa, New Zealand, India, Japan, Australia and the Philippines celebrate the holiday which is often acknowledged during the second Sunday in May. At Herbal Goodness, we know that little surpasses celebrating being a mom than Happy Mother's Day Sister events.
