Mother’s Day is today, May 12, a holiday recognized nationally, thanks to a joint resolution signed by President Woodrow Wilson on May 8, 1914. That resolution designated the second Sunday in May as a day to celebrate mothers and their tireless dedication to their children and families. For one Lancaster mom, this Mother’s Day will probably have much more meaning than it used to.
