Inspiring Quotes about Moms on 109th Mother’s Day

 

 

See ya, I told you! That’s how she does it – a conversation two kids have when they find a Superwoman cape in their mom’s closet. Pretty dang! But really, how are they so perfect in everything they do. What changes the moment a woman becomes a mother? Perhaps even science couldn’t seem to find the answer to it. But all said and done, Mothers are magical. They are the force to be reckoned with. They are the everyday feats of unfaltering grace. They are the protectors, the advisors, the nurturers and most importantly, a superwoman without any supernatural powers.

At Voxpop, we’re celebrating 109th Mother’s Day, (the first ever Mother’s Day was celebrated in 1908), and we want our readers to get familiar with some of the most enticing and invigorating quotes said by the famous personalities about their mothers and their experiences of being brought up by a woman who was once….well,  just a Girl!
