Mother's Day is a wonderful time to reflect on the women who have inspired us over the years and celebrate their presence in our lives. We've been especially moved this year by the mothers in our candle studio who are strengthening their artisan skills and building brighter futures for their families in Massachusetts with meaningful handmade gifts. To celebrate our artisans this Mother's Day, we asked several to share what being a mom means to them, and the parts of motherhood that bring them joy.
Their inspiring Mother's Day quotes are full of pride, happiness... and wonderful food. Read on for uplifting mothers' quotes on Mother's Day from the artisans in our studio.... we just couldn't keep these inspirational Mother's Day quotes to ourselves!
"I’m really proud to be a mother. For me, I’m proud to have kids with me and to be a mother and make food for my kids that they like. I like to take my kids to the park and they always join me to cook. I do my country’s food and they do American food." - Shah, artisan
