But honoring Mother’s has been around for thousands of years. The roles they play have evolved with the times, now wearing many more hats, various titles and countless upon countless responsibilities… they really should be called super women especially on Mother’s Day.
And Mother’s Day isn’t just for Mom anymore; it is the incredible role any women can play being influential in someone’s life.
Flowers have always been a traditional gift to honor Mom or a Maternal Figure, and just like Mom, flowers also play a significant role in our lives. Flower symbolism started in ancient Greece, but became more elaborate during the Victorian Era. Here are the meanings of popular flowers given at Mother’s Day; do any of them remind you of the most influential person in your life?
Carnations: carry the greatest significance, beginning with the belief that they first appeared on earth from the Virgin Mary’s tears – making them the symbol of a mother’s undying love
Lilies: white lilies symbolize chastity and virtue – and were the symbol of the Virgin Mary’s purity and her role of Queen of the Angels. White stargazer lilies express sympathy and pink stargazer lilies represent wealth and prosperity
Gerbera daisies: innocence, purity, and cheerfulness
Snapdragons: graciousness and strength
Iris: each of the 3 petals symbolize faith, valor and wisdom
