HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!


Mother's Day is such a great time to appreciate our mothers for a job well done. Life has a way of making us very busy and not finding time to appreciate those that matter in our lives. That's why I'm very grateful that the world always keep a date and time to celebrate great  people such as 'Father's Day', 'Mother's Day', 'Worker's Day', 'Children's Day', 'Valentine's Day', etc.

Mother's Day is specially dedicated to our Mothers. For every female in the world - whether married or unmarried - had ourselves celebrated on the International Women's Day. I did a great post specially for that day. If you missed it, you missed out. However, you can check it out by clicking HERE.

Our Mothers are very special and are great entities. They deserve to be celebrated for numerous reasons. For carrying us for months, it's something they should be celebrated for. They had options of taking us out especially those that got us through pre - marital sex or times when there was no money to fend for themselves not to talk of us. For all the tears, pains and sufferings they went through for us has given them a seat among great Queens especially those who were physically and mentally abused by their husbands  but chose to stay all because of us. They deserve all the hugs and kisses in the world. You know what your own mother has done for you. If you really appreciate her, do something that will make her smile today. If you haven't called her to celebrate her, please do so. She deserves it and more. For our wonderful brothers and sisters who have lost a great gem like their mothers, you can remember them by doing something sweet for a mother figure you look up to. Nothing is too big or small.

To celebrate our mothers on the blog today, we will be dishing out 10 women who are worthy of inspiring us. Also, we would be showcasing 10 female beauties we are crushing on. I'm sure you will crush on them too when you see them. It's a happy day today. Enjoy the post!
