TyAnne from Inspire Me Crafts has put together a few quotes about mothers. I thought it was fun to read some of these, and I'm trying to figure something creative to do with them. I'll keep you posted.
1. Who are all these children and why are they calling me mom?
2. Mother's of little boys work from son up til son down!
3. A suburban mother's role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after. - Peter De Vries
4. All mothers are working mothers.
5. When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. - Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty
6. Insanity is hereditary; you get it from your children. - Sam Levenson
7. A mother understands what a child does not say.
8. Your arms are always open when I needed a hug. Your heart understood when I needed a friend. Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a lesson. Your strength and love has guided me and gave me wings to fly. - Sarah Malin.
9. AS I LOOK BACK
As I look back on my life
I find myself wondering....
Did I remember to thank you
for all that you have done for me?
For all the times you were by my side
to help me celebrate my successses
and accept my defeats?
Or for teaching me the value of hard work,
good judgement, courage, and honesty?
I wonder if I've ever thanked you for the simple things....
The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we've shared?
If I have forgotten to express my gratitude
For any of these things,
I am thanking you now....
and I am hoping that you've known all along,
how very much you are loved and appreciated.
