"Most mothers are instinctive philosophers."
— Harriet Beecher Stowe
Today is the day of the year where we pause to do something we should do every day, honor motherhood. We’re reflecting on our mothers — biological, metaphorical and spiritual and how they have shaped us into the humans we have become today. Tell these women we are grateful. The important task of being a mother is often overlooked. Bringing a child into this world is one of life’s greatest responsibilities and gifts. It is often not given the credit it deserves.
We’d like to thank all of our mothers and all the mothers out there. We love, recognize and most of all respect you and the sacrifices you have made in contributing to who we are and who we have yet to become.
To further honor mothers, through the end of May, The Arc is continuing to support the mission of Alliance of Moms by making a 10% donation of all purchases using the code AOMTRIBE, both in-store and online.
