Mother’s Day is a time when we can all come together to honor the women in our lives. Whether it’s a mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, or friend – it’s a beautiful gesture to share your gratitude and appreciation for them.

We are excited for our favorite fellow bloggers to join us in this celebration of Mother’s Day!

Enjoy and keep the tissue box nearby 😉

“My mom is my role model without a doubt. The way she puts others in front of herself, and the way she gives of her love and energy to make sure others are happy is an inspiration to me beyond words. My mom is a kickass marathon runner, and awesome cook, a good (ok, decent) tennis player, and one of the most underrated funny people in this world! Mom, thanks for all the lessons you’ve taught me about love, family, faith, and so much more. Happy Mother’s Day!” – Philip

“Mother’s Day has always been bittersweet for me. My mother and best friend died when I was 26. She missed all the milestones of my late 20s and beyond. Although I have missed her presence, becoming a mother myself has filled part of that void and shaped me into the woman I have become.  Being a mom has taught me the meaning of the word sacrifice. I am close to both my children but I have learned specific lessons from my daughter. She has taught me to be flexible and spontaneous. She has been a fierce example of staying true to yourself and not caring what others think.  Having the same special bond with my daughter that my mother and I shared, makes Mother’s Day less bitter and more sweet. ” – Karen

“Parents are naturally an inspiration because they’re our parents, period. But my mom represents so much more to me that’s even difficult to put it in words. Wilma is such a strong and independent woman! She’s always inspiring, giving good advice, and also pulling ears whenever necessary to help and support not only me but her friends and acquaintances too. She’s self-motivated, genuine and kind. I learned from her to see obstacles as lessons to conquer, not as excuses to quit. She faced a brain tumor and breast cancer courageously and won both battles. She motivates me every day to keep on learning new things, improving myself, and becoming a better person. All my love, respect, and admiration for her! Wishing a very Happy Mother’s Day to all moms and moms-to-be! ” – Debbie

“My mom is the most positive person I know. No matter what she’s experiencing, she does her absolute best to find the good in a situation and make the most of it. Without her, I wouldn’t be the person I am today, and I certainly wouldn’t have started Positively Present! I know everyone says their mom is the best, but I swear I lucked out with the best one!” – Dani

“I don’t think I truly began to appreciate what a selfless woman my Mother was until I became an adult. She is constantly volunteering her time to her church, friends, and her Family and never once complains or asks for anything in return! I can call her at any time of day and she’s there to help with whatever curveball life has thrown at me 🙂 Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!  We love you!” –Kathleen

“We all have that one go to person that we can always count on. For me, it is definitely my mom! She has taught me to be selfless and giving to those around us.” – Kara

“My mother has always believed in my ability to reach success as well as my ability to get into trouble, lucky for her I chose to be successful!

Mothers in my eyes are superheroes. They love unconditionally, put up with all the tears and challenges life brings to their children, but most importantly they provide the first feeling of love that we experience. On this Mother’s Day, I would like to wish all the mothers out there a wonderful holiday but I would also like to say keep showing love and care to those who look at you like a mother figure. You’re somebody’s hero. ” – Taylor

“My Mom is my biggest support and hero in my life. She is the most selfless person, and has always put her children before herself. Me and my sisters are her biggest passion, and I am so thankful for all she has done for me. She has literally put her life on hold to help me multiple times. She has set a great example to me to be true to myself and have integrity. My mom has also set an example of how to live a healthy lifestyle. She workouts, cooks healthy, and has an amazing body! I would not be as strong as I am today or the person I am without her love and constant support. Happy Mother’s Day mom. I love you!” – Jules

“My mom is one-of-a-kind! Her humor, wit, love, and support makes her the incredible woman she is each and every day. I look up to my mom in so many ways and can only dream of becoming half the person she is today. Her ability to relate and care for others is what makes LOR special. She continuously goes above and beyond to ensure other’s needs are put before her own. She is the glue that holds our crazy Italian family together. Love you momma bear. Happy Mother’s Day!” – Angela

“My mom moves mountains when it comes to taking care of family. Now that I am an adult, I can recognize and appreciate everything she has done for me over the years. She is beautiful inside and out; and is one of the most nurturing and kind-hearted people you will ever meet. Thank you, Mama – for giving me life, endless love, and for guiding me to be the mother that I am proud to be for my son. Happy Mother’s Day, Mama! I love you!”  – Linda

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful!
