It’s that time again. Throughout history, May and motherhood have been celebrated together. Maia was the goddess of spring in Roman mythology. She was linked with the growth and renewal of nature and her name spoke of a mother, a nurse and of universal increase and plenty. At the time of year when nature renewed itself, festivals were dedicated to the mother goddess as the source of new life. Our modern version of this day of the recognition of mothers actually began simply enough early in the 20th century.

CHERRIL DOTY Stepping out the front door into the warmth of the evening, I first noticed the sultry scent of night blooming jasmine. A glance into the twilight blue of the desert sky revealed a stately palm standing sentinel to the night. Taking a deep breath, I walked to my car to begin the Sunday night drive home from a Mother's Day visit. What a glorious day! The two hour drive time home alone would provide time to reflect on this time together.

Mothers' Day, as we celebrate it, seems to be about perfection.

Whether it’s called Muttertag, La Festa della Mama, Fête des Mères, Dia de las Madres, Mothering Sunday or Mother’s Day, motherhood has been celebrated throughout the world since prehistoric times when goddesses were worshiped as the creators of life. Festivals celebrating motherhood have always taken place in the spring, which is the time of fertility and rebirth in nature. The early origins of Mother’s Day as we know it began in 17th-century England when small children, as young as 8 or 9, would be sent away from home to work as servants for wealthy families or to apprentice in some trade.

Sunday is Mother?s Day, celebrated in many parts of the world to honor mothers and motherhood. A holiday that follows the tradition of ?Mothering Sundays? in many countries and is honored on various days, it was first recognized as an official holiday in the U.S. in 1914, after Anna Jarvis campaigned to make it so in the years following her own mother?s death. Restaurants and shops throughout Laguna Beach will honor moms with an array of activities and offerings. Spend quality time strolling through the wildflowers, enjoy a spring brunch or make a candle together.
