✨The word mother is defined as, a person who loves unconditionally, the maker and keeper of precious memories, a person much loved and greatly admired. The word mother it’s not labeled to just one gender. So today I want to wish a happy and well-deserved Mother’s Day to the moms and any uncles, aunts, grandpas, and grandmas, who had graciously accepted the role as a mother in somebody’s life. There are not enough words in the English language to describe how much we are grateful for mothers today. They have shaped us to the people we are, and have taught us right from wrong. They are all superheroes in their own way. I will forever be grateful for my mom who is my number one role model and has taught me so much. Once again, I wanna wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day.🩷
