In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I’d post some photos of the mother’s around the world I’ve seen. The more I travel and learn about mother’s in other countries through my advocacy work, the more and more I realize that we are all the same. We are all mothers whose number one priority in life is our children. Nurturing, loving, holding, and caring for our babies from the first time we birth them to the time they leave us to start a family of their own. Motherhood is a beautiful thing that transcends boundaries and our differences and instead brings us together.

The mothers I met and saw in Guatemala…

I have also written a post earlier in the week on behalf of Save the Children in honor of Mother’s Day. If you haven’t had a chance to read it, please take a look here.

This post was also inspired by two weekly themes, one by Jakesprinter and the other by This Man’s Journey.

For all you mother’s out there, Happy Mother’s Day! May your day be filled with love and joy.


  1. Happy Mother’s Day my friend. A beautiful, uplifting tribute to mothers around the world. I hope and pray that we all value and honor always the hard work, love and devotion mothers give everyday so their children can have a better life. Till the end, a mother’s love to her child endures and knows no limits. God bless all our mothers!
