         WHEREAS, Mother's Day is among the most cherished
  celebrations in Mexican culture, and many Texans of Mexican descent
  are observing El Día de las Madres on May 10, 2019; and
         WHEREAS, Inspired by their neighbors to the north, Mexicans
  began observing a Mother's Day holiday in the early part of the 20th
  century; the celebrations of Mother's Day in Mexico and in the
  United States bear many similarities, with children often
  presenting their mothers with gifts of candy, cards, or flowers and
  treating them to a special lunch or dinner; and
         WHEREAS, In some Mexican cities, it is customary for children
  to begin the day by serenading their mothers at their bedside, and
  some even engage mariachi bands to accompany them; many families go
  on to attend a special mass and community breakfast; regardless of
  the traditions that families embrace, the greatest gift of all is
  the precious time spent with loved ones; and
         WHEREAS, The bond of affection shared between mother and
  child is eternal, and Mother's Day offers a welcome opportunity for
  all to express gratitude to their mothers for the unconditional
  love, support, and wisdom that they have given them throughout
  their lives; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 86th Texas
  Legislature hereby commemorate Mexican Mother's Day on May 10,
  2019, and extend warmest best wishes to the Texas families who are
  taking part in this treasured occasion.
