What lessons have you learned from your mother?

Wear your sweater. Drive safely. Eat your vegetables.

Moms give us so much advice through the years -- and some of it, sad to say, goes in one ear and out the other. (Until we become parents ourselves, and hear those same words coming out of our own mouths!)

But a lot of what moms teach us, we learn by example. How to take the time to get down on the floor and play Barbies or Superheros. How to dry tears and kiss away boo-boos. How to let your children find their own paths in life -- even as you keep them in your heart.

What lessons have you learned from your mother? Please take a moment and share your story with TODAY; if you can, please also send in photos of you and your mom. Your stories and photos may be featured in TODAY.com's Mother's Day coverage.
