Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia, whose mother had organized women’s groups to promote friendship and health, originated Mother’s Day. On May 12, 1907. She held a memorial service at her late mother’s church in Grafton, West Virginia. Within five years virtually every state was observing the day, and in 1914.

Mother’s Day is always the 2nd Sunday in May.  Mother’s Day in Mexico (El Dia de la Madre) is celebrated on May 10 every year.
