small__3517104758-1

Since Mother’s Day is this Sunday I thought I would celebrate by sharing some of my favorite quotes about motherhood. πŸ™‚

1. “God could not be everywhere and therefore He made mothers.” –Jewish Proverb

2. “Mother is the heartbeat in the home; and without her, there seems to be no heart throb.” –Leroy Brownlow

3. β€œMotherhood: All love begins and ends there.” –Robert Browning

4. β€œA mother understands what a child does not say.” –Jewish Proverb

5. β€œMother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.” –Marion C. Garretty

6. β€œA mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” –Washington Irving

7. All I am, I owe to my mother. –George Washington

These quotes, especially #6 are certainly true of my mother. She has always been there for me and I am so grateful to her. I just hope I can be half as good as a mother to Andrew as she was to me. I love you mom!

Ode to Motherhood

Life is a gift. So is motherhood. Being a mother is a hard, often thankless, job. No doubt about that. But motherhood is beautiful and wonderful. I can’t even imagine what my life was like before my son. Sure I remember the ‘freedom’ of doing what I want, going where I want and not having the worries and duties I have now. But every second was (and is) worth it. Andrew has blessed my life in so many ways.

And I am so grateful to my own mom. She is an amazing, wonderful woman who sacrificed a lot for us – more than I think we will ever know.

This Sunday is Mother’s day, so I’d like to take this opportunity to honor my mom and all mothers with some quotes and images I’ve found on Pinterest. Enjoy!
