May: The Month of Memorial Day, Motherhood, and Merriment

According to the western or Gregorian calendar, the month of May is named after Maia, the ancient Greek and Roman goddess of youth, life, growth, rebirth, love, and nursing mothers. She was also considered the goddess of plants and the spring season. In earlier times, when the gentle warmth of May caused flowers to bloom and crops to sprout, people danced, children made garlands of greenery, and joyful celebrations were held on May Day, the first day of the month.

The spirit of May-time merrymaking continues to this day, as May Day is still an established spring holiday in many European countries. In May, people in the US also remember the country’s wartime heroes on Memorial Day, the 30th of the month, when the country celebrates the freedom that their sacrifices made possible. Another major holiday is Mother’s Day, celebrated in the US on the second Sunday of May. It’s appropriate that May was chosen as the month to honor mothers, because as mentioned, Maia, for whom the month was named, was the ancient goddess of nursing mothers.

One way to get into the spirit of May is to post uplifting quotes on your whiteboard wall that highlight the joy of this merry month. In doing so, you’ll provide positive reinforcement for yourself while working remotely or homeschooling your children, and also create material for homeschool English, history, and social studies lessons. The following is a selection of quotes with themes about May and mothers that you can use for this purpose, and so help to inspire yourself in the work-from-home office, or encourage your children in their homeschool studies.

According to psychologist and motivation expert Dr. Jonathan Fader, reading such quotes can uplift people who are open to positive, coherent messages that use powerful images and appeal to their hopeful natures. So, to help maintain an upbeat tone and think about aspects of yourself that you might want to improve, use your whiteboard wall as a posting area. Regularly write down three to seven of these quotes that best resonate with your current work-from-home or homeschool activities.  With any luck, you’ll find food for thought, as well as a bit of humor and personal inspiration to help you face daily challenges and enhance your life.
