In honor of the most important women in our life (who, frankly, should get a whole weekend instead of a day) this blog is all about you, Moms! Thank you for raising us. The future generations of healers, geniuses, and those who will change the world and make a difference. You are the ones who do it all, and we cannot thank you enough. How did Mother’s Day start, by the way? Do you know the history? Here are some fun facts about the day we all treat our Mothers like queens:

  • Originated in the U.S, meant to honor the mother’s and their influence in society and became a recognized holiday in 1914.
  • The most common flower for Mother’s Day is the carnation: pink and red for living mother’s, and white for deceased.
  • Mother’s Day is celebrated in close to 50 countries around the world.
  • $62,985: Base annual salary (according to CNN via. Insure.com) that you would have to pay someone to do the daily tasks of a Mom at home.
  • 14: hours per week a Mom spends cooking.
  • $4.1: Billion. Amount expected to be spent on special outings like lunch and dinner this Mother’s Day, based on the average over the years.
  • 4.3: Babies born per second worldwide.
  • 69: Highest recorded number of children born to one mother…16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets.
  • 2’4″: The world’s smallest Mom. Stacey Herald has given birth to 3 babies, even though she recieved warning she was too small to carry a child.

Happy Mother’s Day to all and thank you for all that you do!
