Mothers and Daughters Across the World

Most countries celebrate Mother’s Day in May, and the month is known as the last month of spring, giving birth to new life and blossoming in all its beauty. So what better time to share with you pictures of special moments and innermost thoughts of mothers and their daughters across the world!

My mother passed away when she was 47, so she never met her granddaughters, but I know she would be truly happy and proud to see her kindness and beauty live on in them.
