Happy Mother's Day!


My sweet mom went to be with the Lord on November 11, 2006. I miss her as much today as I did then. She was a good woman and a dedicated mother. She wasn't perfect, none of us are but she was pretty darn close as far as I'm concerned.  Here are a few of my favorite quotes about mothers:

All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. - Abraham Lincoln


There is only one pretty child in the world and every mother has it. - Chinese Proverb

For the hand that rocks the cradle, is the hand that rules the world. - William Ross Wallace

Who ran to help me when I fell, And would some pretty story tell, or kiss the place to make it well? My mother. - Ann Taylor

When you are a mother, you are never alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. - Sophia Loren

Mother, another name for love. 

Happy Mother's Day!

  4. This is a beautiful tribute to mothers and great quotes. Who'd a thought Sophia Loren could be so profound??

  5. Dearest Vicki,

    This is beautiful! We never stop missing them, do we? My heart cries with you, dear friend. Yes, through our eyes of love, they are perfect. For me as well. How fortunate you and I have been...but in our blessing, is also great loss...You have tenderly and exquisitely reminded me of my mother's profound love through these poignant quotes and your heartfelt words!And I cry happy tears as this post tugs gently on my heart. Thank you, dearest Vicky...Little did I know that this journey of grief would lead me to some of the very dearest friends I have ever had...I love you. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
