As I write this letter, I hope that when the day comes for you both to become fathers you will take the time to read it. As your mother, I have found that you will have many fears when raising a child. As much as your personal life experiences will teach you, I wanted to give you a little insight on what mom and dad have learned so far raising you and your siblings.
I reckon there's never been a song for moms quite like this one, one that expresses, with brutal and unflinching honesty, the sacrifices made, body changes endured, and doubts that naturally creep in about ever getting back to where you were, who you were, and what you were doing before becoming a mom -- all while simultaneously cherishing your new title.
There are few things in this world beloved more than mom. Moms are the embodiment of eternal love and devotion. Sick and need caring for? Mom's there with a bowl of chicken soup. Had your heart broken? Mom's using her sleeve to dry your tears.

Who said being a mom is a limiting career? These power moms prove that a lot can be accomplished while being a mother. In honor of Mother's Day, here's six of the most powerful, inspiring, and badass moms in the celebrity realm who are using their status to change the world and offer up a new kind of role model for every woman.
