5. Read the text. Pay attention to the words in bold. Match the title of the paragraphs with their numbers.


1. Mothers are important to everyone. After all, where would we be without them? While their contributions were known, there was little support to celebrate their efforts until Anna Marie Jarvis.

2. Anna, born on May 1, 1864, was the daughter of Ann Jarvis, a West Virginia homemaker. It was Ann’s life and work that made such an impression on Anna.

3. Even before the Civil War, Ann Jarvis looked for ways to help other mothers. She understood that disease could be stopped with proper sanitation. She started organizing Mothers’ Work Day Clubs in several towns in 1858. They worked to help provide money, medicine, and housekeeping assistance for women who were ill. They were so successful that after two years doctors were encouraging the formation of more groups.

4. Ann strongly advised the Mothers’ Work Day Clubs to remain neutral during the Civil War. The Clubs cared for and fed soldiers from both the Union and the Confederacy. She wanted the soldiers on both sides of the conflict to be helped. Her idea was that it would help build places of peace during a terrible war.

5. Ann herself did not have an easy life and lost eight of her twelve children before they reached adulthood. Perhaps it was because of these tragedies that she could identify with others going through hardship.

6. After the war, Ann Jarvis organized Mothers’ Friendship Day to help bring together a community shattered by war. It was held annually for several years.

7. Anna Jarvis had a good model of what a woman can do to help those around her. Anna never married, and when her mother died, she dedicated herself to getting a day established to honour all mothers.

8. While everyone had a mother, few were interested in having a day set aside to honour them. The first memorial for mothers was celebrated in Jarvis’s home town of Grafton, West Virginia, a year after Ann’s death. It’s now the location of the International Mother’s Day shrine.

A. The Mothers’ Work Day Clubs and the attitude to the Civil War

B. The result of the activity of two strong women

C. Ann’s desire to help people to overcome the hardships of the post-war period

D. Ann’s example for her daughter Anna

E. Ann’s life, full of difficulties

F. The significance of mothers

G. The start for Mothers’ Work Day Clubs

H. Birth of a child in 1864
