Our mothers loved us before we were born.

Thanks to Karlee Fellner, celebrating her first Mother’s Day-in-waiting, for allowing us to share this image she painted for her own unborn child. It reminds us all of how we were each loved by our mothers, even before we were born. 

Happy Mother’s Day to mothers everywhere. (Be sure to add the plural (k) if you’re speaking to more than one mother!)
