Mothers Day Ideas

Mothers Day is almost upon us.  Baring good old fashion guilt, what do you have planned?  Need some ideas?  Read On…

“The United States celebrates Mother’s Day on the second Sunday in May. In the United States, Mother’s Day was loosely inspired by the British day and was imported by social activist Julia Ward Howe after the American Civil War. However, it was intended as a call to unite women against war. In 1870, she wrote the Mother’s Day Proclamation as a call for peace and disarmament. Howe failed in her attempt to get formal recognition of a Mother’s Day for Peace. Her idea was influenced by Ann Jarvis, a young Appalachian homemaker who, starting in 1858, had attempted to improve sanitation through what she called Mothers’ Work Days. She organized women throughout the Civil War to work for better sanitary conditions for both sides, and in 1868 she began work to reconcile Union and Confederate neighbors.” Whole Story

  1. Hi Shore Mom’s – I know a lot of you traveled down on this wet weekend. Here’s some things you can do while here, because we love the shore in all it’s glory, it’s a beautiful green spring rain!

    So put on your slicker & sneaks and…

    * Walk on the beach
    (@ Stone Harbor Point or a State Park near you)

    * Go to the Cape May County Park/Zoo
    (great animals, wonderful horiculture, nice walk!)

    * Go to Yvette’s Cafe in Cape May Court House
    (fresh, fresh, fresh!)

    * Check out Cape May City & the Sunset Beach
    (the famed Cape May diamond can be found among it’s beautiful beach rocks)

    Then, put on your dry socks, & grab a cup of tea & a blankie! Enjoy!

    I personally will be spending part of Mother’s Day making music with my friend Susanne (violin & cello). These are a few of my favorite things!

    Take care,
    Dori @ GRACE NOTE MUSIC ENSEMBLES
