Mr. Speaker, there is nothing more beautiful in all the world than a new mother with her new baby. Yesterday, my friend gave birth to two brand new baby boys. The miracle of carrying a new person created with unlimited potential makes mothers tremendous.
Being a mom can feel overwhelming and impossible, but today I want to recognize all the mothers who bring new life into this world and care for their children. It can make them feel unseen and underappreciated, but their impact is infinite in the lives of their children. Moms shape the next generation.
I thank moms for their sleepless nights, for bandaids on skinned knees, for their first-day school tears, for late night heart-to-hearts and for their unconditional love.
To all the moms to whom we owe our existence, I thank them.
