No matter how you cut it, mothers are absolutely critical in the lives of their children. They love us before they know us, feed and clothe us, putting us before themselves time and again. Mothers shape the way we think, the way we treat each other, even the way we hope to be treated by others. So, choices they make in loving us and raising us are critical not only to us but also to everyone we interact with. Love your mom with all your heart, appreciate them for how they love you, and take the time to think about the moms across this globe and across time. Though culture may differ, the love of a mother for their children, and the impact of that love on their worldview, knows no bounds.
