Motherhood, it seems, is timeless.
In honor of the 100th anniversary of Mother's Day, Mashable spoke with three centenarians — Rita Rosenthal, Sadie Adler and Connie Isaacs — about their experiences as mothers and heard their advice for moms of today's generation.
"Listen to your children and treat them as a grown-up," Adler says.
And while they echo the same sentiments of pride and joy that moms in 2014 feel, the 100-year-olds did have one particular hardship that stands out — they raised children during wartime.
"When you see your kid go away, and you see the papers with casualties, it was shattering," Adler says. "You think about all those thousands of boys who died there, for what?"
A special thanks to the New York City Department for the Aging for help with the project.
