Mother’s Day 2022

Published May 5, 2022 (last updated on July 4, 2024) | Adam Wyatt - Content Writer


Mother’s Day has long been a part of the Australian calendar, but have you ever wondered where the idea originated from?

We owe our thanks to Sydney woman Janet Heyden who started the tradition by campaigning schools and businesses to donate gifts to women at a local hospital, many of whom had lost their husbands and sons in World War I or had never been wives or mothers due to the immense loss of an entire generation.

"Motherhood is an unending journey"

A mother is your first friend, your best friend, your forever friend. They’re the first people we intimately know the moment we enter the world, and their role continues with no end in sight. A mother never stops loving, caring, or worrying over her children. Simply put, motherhood is an unending journey with no end in sight.

Over time, Mother’s Day has been heavily commercialized; however, despite consumerism gradually overpowering authenticity, Mother’s Day will forever serve as a reminder of what mothers mean to us. Even though we should celebrate and spoil our mothers on any given day throughout the year; the denoted day gives us all an excuse to express our utmost gratitude.

It is an opportunity for us to celebrate and honour mothers and give thanks to the selfless women in our lives.

We would like to honour and thank all our mothers for their selfless love, and we hope that the day is laced with beautiful memories to cherish over the years. Happy Mother’s Day!

"A mother is your first friend, your best friend, your forever friend”
