A mother is the only human being who carries you for nine months in her belly, four years in her arms, and forever in her heart.
These women prove superwoman isn’t just a fictional character. Though they may not be perfect, most try their best to be.
As such, Mother’s Day is a very special day, dedicated to all those Supermoms, Safety Queens, Bandaid Makers, Boo Boo Caretakers, Captain Fix Its, Mama Reality Checks, and Life-saving Anchors.

Her effort and love deserve to be recognized.
