So tell us in the form below what makes your mum special, or what you love about being mum. Attach a photo and your details and we’ll add you to this Mothers’ Day gallery.
The gallery currently features words about why The Northern Daily Leader staff love their mum or why they love being a mother.

"My mum has undoubtedly been a huge influence on my life and career. Although English is not her first language - she moved to Australia from France in her twenties - she has practised, studied and embraced it to the point she has taught English and literacy at a secondary and tertiary level, retiring as the head teacher of general education at her local TAFE,” Carolyn Millet, editorial department.
“The first person in our family to gain a degree, she beat me only because her name was before mine alphabetically - she and I graduated from the same university on the same day. However, as she had to study part-time over several years while raising three children, she totally deserves that claim. Go, Ma.”
I love being a Mum because even on the worst days my little girl proves my purpose by shooting me a loving smile or giving me a big hug and it makes the whole day better.- Nicole, Advertising.
