Happy Mother’s Day

A mother is our first and foremost carer, shouldering the responsibility for our well-being.  Often putting our needs before her own, she shapes our attitude, values and morals with the hope that we will make the best decisions at every turn of our life.  Even as sacrifices form a daily part of her life, her wish is simply for us to be happy and successful.  Her impact is also wide reaching, as the future of society in a large way is affected by all our mothers’ teaching.
