Our mothers nurture us instinctively, and that's why they're the ones to shower us with love and make sure we have everything we could possibly need to be happy and successful in our lives. The same can be said for the creatures of the animal kingdom, and this is evidenced in the beautiful, heartwarming photos you're about to see below. They clearly show that animal moms are not as different from our own as we might imagine - they are patient, giving, tenacious and wise, giving their children all that they need. Let these beautiful creatures remind you of the special bond that you share with your mom on this Mother's Day:
"When your mother asks, 'Do you want a piece of advice?' it is a mere formality. It doesn't matter if you answer yes or no. You're going to get it anyway".
"When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child".
"It is not until you become a mother that your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding".
"Yes, Mother. I can see you are flawed. You have not hidden it. That is your greatest gift to me".
"For me, nothing has ever taken precedence over being a mother and having a family and a home".
"Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother".
"A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them".
