Lessons from Mom: Our Heartfelt Thanks to Mom on Mother's Day
Mom taught you to love fearlessly, to value creativity, to smile through the tough times, and to look inside for true beauty. She was your example for independence, strength, patience, and humor. And most importantly, she showed you unconditional love. Whether she taught you how to read, how to fight an illness, or how to build a fire, these lessons from a mother are simply priceless to a daughter. Motherhood is often a thankless job, so we asked Shine readers to share their gratitude for all of the sacrifices Mom made and for all of the lessons she bestowed on you along the way. Here are their heartfelt "thanks" to Mom on Mother's Day.
