When we posted an open call for readers to participate in a feature on mothers and daughters, the response was overwhelming. Hundreds of emails flowed in, with women eager to tell us what makes their relationship special. As a tribute to mothers everywhere, we’ve gathered some of the daughters’ submissions here.

"My mom tells me every day, 'I love you up to the stars, up to the moon and down to the sea.' In 2015, following her divorce, she decided to sell her home of 30 years. I packed up the house with her, and it was an experience that cemented our bond not only as mother and daughter but as friends: Friends that would go up to the stars, up to the moon, and down to the sea for each other." — Samara
