Motherhood is as ubiquitous to human life as is its meaning and impact impossible to overstate.
Perhaps this is why it’s as easy to take our mothers and motherhood for granted as it is to express endlessly to them and upon it. On this Mother’s Day 2017, let’s let some pictures of motherhood worldwide do the talking–some I’ve captured from my travels, others sent in from readers.
To all mothers near and far,
Happy Mother’s Day!
If you have a photo of motherhood you’d like to share, feel free to do so on our Facebook page. And if you have a story or idea you’d like to share on The Periphery, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d all love to hear it!
