What’s good in history this month?


1.) Mother’s Day

        a.)Mother's Day in the United States is annually held on the second Sunday of May. It celebrates motherhood and it is a time to appreciate mothers and mother figures.

        b.)The origins of Mother's Day are attributed to different people. Many believe that two women, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis were important in establishing the tradition of Mother's Day in the United States. Other sources say that Juliet Calhoun Blakely initiated Mother’s Day in Albion, Michigan, in the late 1800s. Her sons paid tribute to her each year and urged others to honor their mothers.

Around 1870, Julia Ward Howe called for Mother's Day to be celebrated each year to encourage pacifism and disarmament amongst women. It continued to be held in Boston for about ten years under her sponsorship, but died out after that.

In 1907, Anna Jarvis held a private Mother's Day celebration in memory of her mother, Ann Jarvis, in Grafton, West Virginia. Ann Jarvis had organized "Mother's Day Work Clubs" to improve health and cleanliness in the area where she lived. Anna Jarvis launched a quest for Mother's Day to be more widely recognized. Her campaign was later financially supported by John Wanamaker, a clothing merchant from Philadelphia.

In 1908, she was instrumental in arranging a service in the Andrew's Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia, which was attended by 407 children and their mothers. The church has now become the International Mother's Day Shrine. It is a tribute to all mothers and has been designated as a National Historic Landmark.

Mother's Day has become a day that focuses on generally recognizing mothers' and mother figures' roles. Mother's Day has also become an increasingly important event for businesses in recent years. This is particularly true of restaurants and businesses manufacturing and selling cards and gift items.

Does The Heart Good thought of the month


An Old man is walking down the beach. As he is walking he sees a young man ahead of him throwing something into the ocean. As he gets closer, he see the objects he is gently tossing into the surf is starfish. He approaches the young man and asks. “Hello there young man. What are you doing?” The young man picks up another starfish and tosses it gently into the waves and says “I am throwing the starfish back into the ocean. They will dry up and die on the beach.” The old man shakes his head and points down the beach. “You cannot make much difference young fellow. There are hundreds of starfish washed up on the beach.” The young man smiles as he reaches down and picks up a starfish. He tosses it in and turns to the old man. “Maybe not, but it made a difference to that one.”


We may not be able to change every life or make everyone smile. But we can make a difference to someone. That is worth the effort! :D

Does The Heart Good thought of the month


    This is a true story of a woman who stood before a judge after shoplifting from her local supermarket.

When she went before the judge in Cincinnati he asked her, “What did you steal?”

She replied, “A can of peaches.”

Surprised at her calm demeanor, the judge asked her why she had stolen the can of peaches and she replied that she was hungry. Then the judge asked her how many peaches were in the can. She replied 6.

The Judge said, “Then I will give you 6 days in jail.”

Before the judge could actually pronounce the punishment, the woman’s husband spoke up and asked the judge if he could say something on his wife’s behalf. The judge said, “What is it?”

The husband said, “She also stole a can of peas.”


Good and evil are complicated and can be hard to understand. This is why we shouldn’t only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first. Those who like to pay the bill do so not because they are loaded, but because they value friendship above money.

Those who take the initiative at work do so not because they are stupid, but because they understand the concept of responsibility. Those who apologize first after a fight do so not because they are wrong, but because they value the people around them. Those who are willing to help you, do so not because they owe you something but because they see you as a true friend.

Those who often text you do so not because they have nothing better to do but because you are in their heart.One day, we will all be separated from each other. We will miss our conversations of everything and nothing, the dreams that we had. Days will pass by, then months, then years, until this contact becomes rare… One day our children will see our pictures and ask “Who are these people?” And we will smile with invisible tears because a heart is touched with a strong word and you will say: “It was them that I had the best days of my life with.”

What’s good in history this month?


August is… National Catfish Month, and National Peach Month


Birthstone: Agate or onyx

Flower: Gladiolus or poppy

Zodiac signs: Leo and Virgo


In the original Roman calendar the month of August was called Sextilis. This was because it was the sixth month of the year. Later, after January and February were added to the calendar, it became the eighth month of the year. At the time the month had 29 days. When Julius Caesar created the Julian calendar in 45 BC, two days were added giving the month 31 days. The month was later renamed Augustus in honor of the first emperor of Rome, Caesar Augustus.


August in the Northern Hemisphere is similar to February in the Southern Hemisphere.

Each of us can look back upon someone who made a great difference in our lives, *someone whose wisdom or simple acts of caring made an impression upon us. In all likelihood it was someone who sought no recognition for their deed other than the joy of knowing that, by their hand, another's life had been made better.

February was added to the Roman calendar in 713 BC. The length of the month changed over time and, at one time, it had as few as 23 days. When Julius Caesar remade the Roman calendar, the month was assigned 28 days during normal years and 29 days during leap years which occurred every four years.


It is the shortest month of the year.

The Welsh call February "y mis bach" which means "little month".

It is the third month of winter.

In the Southern Hemisphere February is a summer month the equivalent of August.

The month is named for the Latin word februum which means purification.

Together with January, it was the last of the months added to the Roman calendar.

The largest American sporting event of the year, the Super Bowl, is held in February.

The Saxon term for the month, Sol-monath, means "cake month". This is because they offered cakes to the gods during this month.

(*)While Joanne Woodward is often singled out as the first to receive a star on the Walk of Fame, in fact there was no "first" recipient; the original stars were installed as a continuous project, with no individual ceremonies. Woodward's name was one of eight drawn at random from the original 1,558 and inscribed on eight prototype stars that were built while litigation was still holding up permanent construction. The eight prototypes were installed temporarily on the northwest corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue in August 1958 to generate publicity and to demonstrate how the Walk would eventually look. The other seven names were Olive Borden, Ronald Colman, Louise Fazenda, Preston Foster, Burt Lancaster, Edward Sedgwick, and Ernest Torrence. Official groundbreaking took place on February 8, 1960. On March 28, 1960, the first permanent star, director Stanley Kramer's, was completed on the easternmost end of the new Walk near the intersection of Hollywood and Gower. The Joanne Woodward legend may have originated, according to one source, because she was the first to pose with her star for photographers.
