That's how one Washington state woman felt about her pop, a Civil War veteran and widower who raised her and five brothers—so much so that she rallied for a day of officially recognized commemoration, and won it in 1910.

Mother's Day is just around the corner (it's on Sunday the 14th - don't forget!). If you're anything like me, the holiday has crept up on you.
