In 1914, the Congress, by joint resolution (38 Stat. 770), designated this day as Mother’s Day and requested the President to call for its appropriate observance. Today, we recognize mothers everywhere who inspire us to dream big and to never give up. Mothers have always played an integral role in shaping our great Nation. Even before our country was founded, mothers inspired sons and daughters to patriotism and devotion to the ideal of freedom for all. After First Lady Abigail Adams died in 1818, her son, President John Quincy Adams, wrote: ‘‘She had been, during the war of our Revolution, an ardent patriot, and the earliest lesson of unbounded devotion to the cause of their country that her children received was from her.’’ Inspirational mothers across America continue to pass on this same lesson, encouraging their children to become leaders in their own families and great citizens in their communities and this Nation. Even in our lowest moments, mothers see the best in their children. Through their guidance and unwavering love, they prepare us for the challenges of adulthood and provide us with the confidence we need to reach our full potential. They are some of the best examples of everyday heroes, and their consistent devotion to family and grace under pressure too often go overlooked. At any stage in life, we find comfort in knowing that we can call on our mothers and grandmothers or reflect on our wonderful memories of them to find wisdom and strength. On this Mother’s Day, we pay tribute to our mothers, whether we are their children by birth, adoption, or foster care, for their devotion to seeing us lead happy and successful lives. Today, and every day, let us ensure that our mothers know and feel our deep gratitude for the gift of life and for their unmatched sacrifices to strengthen our families and our Nation. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with PRESDOC3 NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J.

                Proclamation 9885 of May 10, 2019

                
Mother's Day, 2019

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                For more than a century, Americans have set aside the 
                second Sunday in May to honor, celebrate, and thank the 
                inspirational mothers in our lives. In 1914, the 
                Congress, by joint resolution (38 Stat. 770), 
                designated this day as Mother's Day and requested the 
                President to call for its appropriate observance. 
                Today, we recognize mothers everywhere who inspire us 
                to dream big and to never give up.

                Mothers have always played an integral role in shaping 
                our great Nation. Even before our country was founded, 
                mothers inspired sons and daughters to patriotism and 
                devotion to the ideal of freedom for all. After First 
                Lady Abigail Adams died in 1818, her son, President 
                John Quincy Adams, wrote: ``She had been, during the 
                war of our Revolution, an ardent patriot, and the 
                earliest lesson of unbounded devotion to the cause of 
                their country that her children received was from 
                her.'' Inspirational mothers across America continue to 
                pass on this same lesson, encouraging their children to 
                become leaders in their own families and great citizens 
                in their communities and this Nation.

                Even in our lowest moments, mothers see the best in 
                their children. Through their guidance and unwavering 
                love, they prepare us for the challenges of adulthood 
                and provide us with the confidence we need to reach our 
                full potential. They are some of the best examples of 
                everyday heroes, and their consistent devotion to 
                family and grace under pressure too often go 
                overlooked. At any stage in life, we find comfort in 
                knowing that we can call on our mothers and 
                grandmothers or reflect on our wonderful memories of 
                them to find wisdom and strength.

                On this Mother's Day, we pay tribute to our mothers, 
                whether we are their children by birth, adoption, or 
                foster care, for their devotion to seeing us lead happy 
                and successful lives. Today, and every day, let us 
                ensure that our mothers know and feel our deep 
                gratitude for the gift of life and for their unmatched 
                sacrifices to strengthen our families and our Nation.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim May 12, 2019, as 
                Mother's Day. I encourage all Americans to express 
                their love and respect for their mothers or beloved 
                mother figures, whether with us in person or in spirit, 
                and to reflect on the importance of motherhood to the 
                prosperity of our families, communities, and Nation.
