This weekend, we celebrate Mom. Mother’s Day is a time to show our appreciation and love for all the special women who’ve had a big impact on our lives.
So many of you sending in pictures expressing your love, gratitude and appreciation.
As the anonymous saying goes, “Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.”
The News 8 Morning Team gave a shout out to our mothers. Check out their photos in the video above.

Many events so far this Spring, such as a moving display in Branford by an artist in New York bringing awareness to veteran suicide, and the number of people we lose every day throughout the country.
The bears are making their presence known and were spotted in communities across the state.
Many of them strolling through your yards. Danielle in East Haddam got video of this bear manhandling the bird feeders.
In recognition of National Teacher Appreciation Week, the BIC pen company donated 54 boxes of school supplies to the Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School in Bridgeport.
Congratulations to Marissa Jankowski, who is now Trooper Jankowski. She just graduated from the State Police Academy. Her family is very proud.
A big birthday shout out to Mary Riss in Meriden. She just turned 100 years old.
She loves to bake and still cleans snow of her neighbors cars in the winter. She’s my hero.
Finally, some of the beauty from this week and all those spring colors from the vast skies and the blooming flowers.
