Although often mistaken to be strict and overbearing, Mothers are really understanding and caring people. They are not only our providers and guardians but our best friends too who has always been there in our hour of need. Self sacrificing and dedicated, our welfare has always been their sole concern and they always have our best interests in mind. Parenting is not an easy task but our mothers have done it with a smile always and expecting nothing in return. We owe it all to our Mothers whatever success we have in our lives today.
