Happy Mother's Day

To my Mom, Mother-in-law, sister-in-law, Grandmas, aunts, friends - thanks. I love you all!

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness. ~Honoré de

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

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

Biology is the least of what makes some
one a mother. ~Oprah Winfrey

Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes, by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins, comrades and friends - but only one mother in the whole world. ~Kate Douglas Wiggin

A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them. ~Victor Hugo

Grown don't mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown? What's that suppose to mean? In my heart it don't mean a thing. ~Toni Morrison, Beloved, 1987

My mom is a neverending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being. I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune. ~Graycie Harmon

As a mother, I never had the privilege of raising a daughter, but if I had I would have loved one just like you! Being an aunt is the next best thing. Sending lots of love!

Elizabeth said...

Beth - I AM so blessed!

Leah - you would have been a great mom for a daughter. However, since so far I'm only an aunt, I have to think it's the best thing ever!! =)
