The idea of establishing a
national Mother's Day was inspired by women working to improve the
lives of women. Mother's Day, like the
job of "mothering," is celebrated in various and diverse ways.
This day should honor the
multiple ways that women are a source of strength for their
families, communities, countries, and the larger world.
(You can read more about the History of
Mother's Day on our website www.nwhp.org under News and
ago one of our supporters suggested that we do a special
"Mother's Day Card" as a gift idea to honor the important women in
our lives. It was a great idea and
we've been doing unique Mother's Day Cards ever
This Mother's Day, we are
continuing the 2014 theme of “Celebrating Women of Courage,
Character, and Commitment” by featuring an image of Lilacs in the Window,
one of the few still life created by Mary Cassatt. This renowned American
painter, printmaker, pastelist, and
connoisseur, demonstrated her
character, courage and commitment in the choices she made as an
artist and in her support of the woman suffrage
inscription will be modified if the card is from more than one
person, or if it is a Memorial card.
