North Shore Gas is celebrating moms this Mother’s Day. The company asked employees to submit pictures and provide a few thoughts about why they love being a mom.

Here are their words.

“Words cannot express the overwhelming amount of unconditional love when I became a mother. It is such an amazing feeling to watch my children becoming adults, creating families and special memories of their own. There is not a day that passes without telling them I love them and thanking them for making it easy to be their mom.” — Anna Martinez, complex billing specialist

“Being a mom is the most challenging, but rewarding job I will ever have!” — Diane Rudd, senior operations specialist

“I feel honored to have the opportunity to raise two kind, caring and respectful sons. I love watching their individual personalities develop, and they are so much fun!” — Alese Mauermann, lead gas supply planner
