Mothers Day - Moms are ToughIncredibly thankful for mom's. Your selfless daily acts make us stand in awe of your character, your service and the amazing example of the way you live. We want to honor mothers today.
When we say Mothers, we also mean those women who mentor children... we mean the sisters and aunts who step in and care for children when it is necessary, and we mean the example of countless others who serve, guide, care for and love. It can take a village and there are many in our lives that have mothered us - today we remember and honor all of you.

Mom's ears are amazing, you must admit it.
Then there is the classic tattoo image we think of as the "mom tattoo". You know the one... it is the chubby red heart with Mom splayed across it on a ribboned scroll. The tattoo caught on among servicemen during and after World War II. Many of these soldiers were so young when they were shipped off that a mother's love was more tangible than a girlfriend's. The "mom" tattoo image can sometimes symbolize not just affection, but also a love of country. There is a strong connection between motherhood and country.
