From Bold Blind Beauty
Did you know the woman responsible for Mother’s Day, Anna Jarvis, lived to regret it? Today’s Mother’s Day is a far cry from its original intended purpose. Before her death in 1948 Anna fought against the commercialization of the holiday. The article in National Geographicprovides an interesting background on the holiday.

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
“No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
