Since May 1 we've published essays from women about their moms and the complicated relationships they have with the women who raised, wounded, inspired, infuriated and loved them.

Guys, if you have a Mother's day message for your mom, please send a photo of her or, even better, the two of you, as well as a short message to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll include your tribute in the slideshow below, kicked off by a few good men from The Huffington Post.
