Mother's Day is Sunday.
For all of you kids (of all ages) who are fortunate enough to still have your mom, I've gathered a few pearls of appreciation for motherhood that have been generated through the ages.

There are many, many more, but for now, I'll just say "Happy Mother's Day" to all moms -- and 'Thank You' for all you do.
