There’s solace and strength that comes from uttering the word ‘mom’. How can it not when moms comfort you when you’re feeling down, encourage when you doubt yourself, and know all your favorite things, from ice cream flavor to pizza toppings.
Moms strive every day of their life to provide, to nurture, and to love. They give it their all just so you can live a good life. With a touch of ‘mom’, things are not as hard as they seem. Even if they are, she’ll be there every step of the way.
That’s why we don’t need special occasions to show our mothers that we love them and that we’re grateful for all their support and sacrifices. Here are 40 inspiring mom quotes to make your mother feel special and greatly appreciated.
