Happy Mother's Day From Tazi Kat!

Dear Readers:

Today is

Mother's Day

a day to celebrate those who have given us life - be it from their womb, from their hearts, or from both. As a cat, I never got to know my birth Mommie; but I have a wonderful adoptive Mommie for whom I live and breathe. My Mommie has several woman who chose to mother her, and I am certain there are those who look to her as a Mommie-figure, too.

Here in America, Mother's Day was first celebrated in the early 1900's as a campaign by Anna Jarvis to recognize the hard work of mothers everywhere. By 1911 the holiday was celebrated in almost all of the individual states, and on May 8, 1914 the second Sunday in May was declared Mother's Day by federal decree. The history of Mother's Day does not start or end here, though.

As far back as the Ancient Greeks and Romans celebrations to the mothering goddesses have been offered in praise and gratitude. In the Middle Ages, the British celebrated Mothering Sunday as a part of their Lenten observances; and here the States Julia Ward Howe (author of the Battle Hymn of the Republic) was the first on record to suggest continuing this tradition of honoring mothers as part of a campaign for a pacifist government - after all, it was the sons of mothers who were going to war.

Today, Mother's Day is celebrated world-wide, much to the joy of florists, card manufacturers, and purveyors of brunch and fine jewelries; so on this day, I gently nudge you to take the time to offer your love and appreciation to the woman - or women - that your heart calls "Mom" (English)...or "Makuahine" (Hawaiian)...or "Mami" (Spanish)...or "Mueter" (Swiss German)...or [insert word for "Mother" here].

Snuggles,
Tazi

  18. By considering the price provided by CTFO on its website, we can suggest that the CTFO is selling one of the cheapest CBD hemp oil as compared to its competitors. But you must know that the price isn’t the determining factor. One of the main attractions of the CTFO CBD is that they source their CBD hemp from the industrial hemp farms which produce some of the wealthiest CBD products not only in Tucson, Arizona but all over in the United States. cbd oil in nebraska

  23. On the other hand, hybrid mattresses are a combination of a foam material and coil support. Most hybrid beds nowadays have thin coils, so you have to ensure that it will last long. Also, take note that coil count doesn’t really affect the comfort level of the mattresses, construction does. bamboo mattress
