A Day To Honor Mothers

who do not limit the imaginations of children,
who encourage sports, team work,
and creativity.
Happy Mother's Day should not be limited to the birth mothers.  There are grandmothers, aunts, friends, siblings and teachers that help mold a child, teach by demonstration, and encourage children to excel and enjoy all they do. 

To all of you who have encouraged a child to look closely at an ant hill, played with them in the dirt, traveled through an art museum, a zoo, read a book or simply listened...thank you.  Happy Mother's Day!

Anyone can "mom" who has the heart! Being a mom, to me, means always being there with unconditional love.

Happy Mother's Day! Have a good one.

Yup, "motherhood" is an attitude!
Happy M-day to you!

Happy Mother's Day to you, too, and to all the non-literal/traditional but very real mothers out there.

That's just so very true and so eloquently stated. I truly does take a village to shape the life of a child!
