“A mother is clothed with strength and dignity, laughs without fear of the future. When she speaks her words are wise and she gives instructions with kindness.” —Proverbs

Mother’s Day is the special time of year when you get to celebrate your first best friend and the person you always turn to when you need advice. It is the perfect opportunity to stop and reflect on all of mom’s hard work and dedication. Mother’s Day is also a great time to show your love and honor for all the other wonderful women in your life like your sisters, your aunts, your grandmothers, your in-laws, and your friends.

Mothers make sacrifices for their family without expecting anything in return. They are just happy to see you happy! 

"A little show of appreciation goes a long way," says Sheriff Lafayette Woods, Jr. "Let Mothers know how much you love and appreciate them."

Happy Mother’s Day from The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office!
