Tattooed actress Angelina Jolie opted for a double mastectomy in February after learning of her high genetic risk. You can learn more about self-screening for breast cancer and treatment options by visiting BreastCancer.org

Running late as always, I was in a rush to pick my mother up from the Chicago O'Hare airport. As I headed to the baggage claim, my eyes shifted across the room of travelers with anxious anticipation. Suitcases wheeled by and laughter and cackle took over the crowds as I stood in one of the busiest airports frantically wondering despite being in my mid-twenties, where is my mommy?
Everything became a blur in the chaos of life and moving people until my cell phone rang. On the other end spoke five little words that melted my heart forever.
"Are you looking for someone?"
As I turned around with my phone still to my ear I saw my beautiful, smiling and loving mom, waiting there for me with open arms. Suddenly the world got quieter, the room a little smaller, and the only thing that mattered was that she was there.
Mother's Day is to honor thy mother. Whether departed or here on earth, everybody has one. I'd like to dedicate this post in part to Zachery Longacre for submitting a photo of his Mom tattoo to remember and honor her. I think his tattoo would make her proud.
May your hearts be filled with love, appreciation and remembrance for your mother, today and everyday.

"What we've said to the girls is, 'If you guys ever decided you're going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place. And we'll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo.' And our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that's a good way to rebel." - NBC's Today Show
