She’s your closest confidante, your original bestie and your personal superhero — aka, mom. We don’t tell our moms often enough how truly amazing they are, but Mother’s Day on May 14 is a chance to put them in the spotlight and show them the appreciation they deserve.
To get the celebration started, we asked you to share your favorite photos with your mom — and we were touched by all the sweet snaps. Here’s to moms everywhere who make the world a better place.
