Google is celebrating moms today with a Mother’s Day doodle illustrated by doodler Sophia Diao.

“As we get older, we forget how heavily we once relied on our mothers and mother-figures. Today’s doodle for Mother’s Day harkens back to a time in my youth when following Mom around was all I knew,” writes Diao on the Google Doodle blog.

The Mother’s Day-themed logo leads to a search for “What day is Mother’s Day 2016?” and includes the usual sharing icon so that users can post the doodle on their social pages.

Search Engine Land wishes all the moms out there a very Happy Mother’s Day!
