It’s already May and Mother’s day is around the corner; Sunday, May 13, 2018.    Happy Mother’s Day to all of you.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

For those of you that still have your mom with you, be grateful.  She’s still around to share life with you, guide you when you need it, scold you even if you’re grown, and be an all-around support to you.  If your mother is no longer with us, I do believe she is watching down on you.  <3

Being a mom is one of life’s greatest gifts.  It’s hard work, but it’s also important work.  Moms come in all shapes, sizes, and definitions.  It’s not just limited to biological moms and children.  It includes the village of moms on the block that helps to “raise” our kids.  That saying “It takes a village to raise a child” is so true.  I’m grateful for those that helped me to “raise” my child. There is so much wisdom and lessons to be learned in this village and I want to take a minute to say thank you to my village.

Below are 19 Inspiring Mother’s Day quotes.  There’s a lot more I believe would be a good addition to this list, but I’m not trying to overwhelm anyone.  I do hope that you enjoy the following quotes.  Maybe one of these can be great to add to a card.
