A Mother is a Walking Miracle.
Grower of life. Personal nurse. Life coach. Saint. Also known as mom. Every path of motherhood is beautiful and unique in its own way, but one thing holds true…EVERY mom deserves to be celebrated!
The celebration of motherhood can be traced all the way back to ancient Greeks and Romans who regularly held festivals to honor the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele. However, the celebration that we currently refer to as Mother’s Day is actually a combination of British and American traditions. In Britain, its roots can be traced back to the 16th Century Christian Church. On the fourth Sunday of Lent, one would go on a pilgrimage to their “mother church” for a special service; which also usually meant spending this day off visiting family as well.
In the United States, Mother’s Day goes back to the 19th Century, when Ann Reeves Jarvis started “Mother’s Day Work Clubs” that taught women how to care for children. After the Civil War, Ann used these clubs to help unify the local region that had been torn apart by the war by organizing “Mother’s Friendship Day”. After her death in 1905, her daughter Anna Jarvis came up with the idea of an entire day dedicated to honoring mothers. After organizing her first ever Mother’s Day celebration in 1908, she later was able to get it added to the calendar as an official US holiday in 1914. After becoming a national holiday, commercialism struck and by the 1920’s gifts, flowers and cards became the staples they are today in the celebration of motherhood. In addition to tangible gifts, mothers are often treated to a much coveted day of relaxation, where children and partners team up to perform tasks that usually fall on mom: aka cooking and cleaning.
Believe us when we say that the woman who bends over backwards for her family would love nothing more than to have a delicious meal she didn’t have to cook! And as always you can count on Truxton’s to dish up a mouth watering meal like our brunch classic Brioche French Toast and Housemade Quiches, and for dinner we feature Filet Mignon and Pan-Seared Halibut to spoil her. We also have some fantastic Brunch Boxes for takeout to celebrate her wherever you like, be sure to pre-order now! We’ve got the food covered, now all you have to do is get the family together to shower her with all the love she deserves (and the little ones to cooperate long enough to make mom a “unique” card that only a mother could love).
