Mothers’ Day declaration ~ I wanted you before you were born. I loved you when you were born. I saw your face and knew that I was in love. Before you were an hour old, I knew I would die for you. To this day, I will. This is the miracle of life. If you have a child/children you love more than life, repost this.
Happy Mothers Day to all the moms!
