A Mother is someone who is awake at night worrying when you are going through a tough time. Whether you are a toddler with a bad cold, a 16 year old girl with a broken heart, or a 25 year old woman struggling with a career decision. She’s used to not getting much sleep.
A Mother is someone who cries when she reads your cards.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers who make this world go round.
