Happy Monday women of Authenticity!
This morning I was awakened by raindrops pelting my windows. As my trusted readers and sistah friends already know, I’m a Mother Nature sort. However, the misty rains and light chill opened my door to an unwelcome visit from ole man Arthur (Arthritis!) but I’m not going to let the stiffness and pain stop me from paying tribute to our wonderful moms, far and near.
President Obama said in a speech recently that his one regret was not spending enough time with his mother, who died at around the age he is now. I can empathize with the President, having lost my own mom in 2001. I don’t know how you feel about your mom ( I pray it’s all good) but I always knew that for every wrong thing happening in my life, mama would always be there to make things right again and if she couldn’t ease my troubles with her wise wisdom, she’d resort to the next best thing: comfort foods :)
Here are some wonderful “Mom” quotes and tributes that I’ve selected to share with all of you and I chose them because they touched my heart as a mother, and daughter:
“Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.” Robert Browning
“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all of my life.” Abraham Lincoln
“My mother is a walking miracle.” Leonardo DeCaprio
“God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.” Rudyard Kipling
“Life began with waking up and loving my mother’s face.” George Eliot
“Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.” Stevie Wonder
“When my mother had to set dinner for 8 she’d just make enough for 16 and only serve half.” Gracie Allen
“Who’s a boy gonna talk to if not his mother?” Donald E. Westlake
Mother Day is Sunday, May 11th, and I’m wishing all a wonderful, glorious and memorable happy mother’s day!
“I’ll always love my mama cause she’s my favorite girl. I’ll always love my mama she brought me in this world. You only get one you only get one to love.” THE INTRUDERS
