Anna May Jarvis, pictured above, created Mother's Day in memory of her mother. I had intended to tell you the story about how I once billed myself as The Mother's Day expert after I'd written The Mommy Guide, because it was a great way to publicize my book and because no one else had claimed the title.
But...on Friday we adopted a new dog, Pinot Gris (a name we'll be changing as soon as we think of a better one), and I'm just pooped. He's a wonderful dog and a great addition to our family, but because he was in a new house last night, he had difficulty remaining asleep and so did I.
So...the story will have to wait until next year! But, for all of you celebrating Mother's Day, I wish you a lovely day!
