Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers who work tirelessly to raise your children. We wouldn't be who we are today without you! We Love and Honor you on this day.
We celebrate the mothers who are no longer with us. Thank you for inspiring us, giving us strength and putting us on the right path to success in life. You are our pillar of strength. You will always remain in our hearts.
Not everyone grew up with a loving mother. We celebrate those of you who showed Love and Kindness to the children of another mother.
God blessed us with you. You loved us unconditionally and we will never forget the many sacrifices you made for us.
