It’s been a while since I’ve posted an inspiration1 post and I thought I would do one today. Well, I have something special for this post. As we all know, today is Mother’s Day (in the US, not sure about other countries). Mother’s Day happens once a year and it’s a day when we celebrate and recognize mothers and motherhood in general. In this post, I’ve gathered up some awesome Mother’s Day designs for your viewing pleasure.
Men are what their mothers made them.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
Let’s face it, without our mother’s we all would not be here. I’m thankful that I have a mother who raised me and took good care of me and cared for me when I was growing up, and by the way, I love her to death!
So for all the mother’s out there and to my mom, this post is for you.
Happy Mother’s Day Link
