The art of mothering is to teach
the art of living to children.

I cannot forget my mother,
She is my bridge.
~ Renita Weems
Mothers hold their daughters hand a little while and their hearts forever.
The older I get, the more I see the power of that young woman, my mother.
A daughter is just a little girl who grows up to be a friend.
From your first breath to my last I will never stop loving you.
All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.
A mother is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary.

I love my mother as the trees love water and sunshine – she helps me grow, prosper, and reach great heights.

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens 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.”
A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.
A mother’s love for her child is like
nothing else in the world. It knows no
law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes
down remorselessly all that stands in its path.
~ Agatha Christie

“The best place to cry is on a mother’s arms.”
“In a child’s eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.”
“Of course mothers and daughters with strong personalities might see the world from very different points of view.”
“There’s a story behind everything..but behind all your stories is always your mother’s story..because hers is where yours begins.”
