"I would never be graduating here today if it wasn't for my mom".
"My grandmother was the shining light that brought me through those years".
"My mom is the reason I became a mother."
We are the legacy of the women who raised, loved, and mentored us.
Motherhood is the strong women who listen, support and guide the next generation of people in their lives through both the beautiful moments and the hard challenges. Not all mothers look the same but they are united in their love and dedication to the next generation.
When we are grown, it is the mementos that remind us of the mothers in our lives. The picture we glance at when we make afternoon coffee, or the diamond ring we put on every morning. These are symbols that remind us that we are not a product exclusively of our own determination and effort, but of a community of strong and selfless people.
We are challenged to be the "mothers" of tomorrow.
