This Sunday is Mother's Day and seeing that I won't be online then, I thought I'd surprise you with some heartfelt quotes on mothers. Enjoy and have a wonderful day!
A mother's happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories. ~ Honore de Balzac
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
Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws. ~ Barbara Kingsolver
A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them. ~ Victor Hugo
Motherhood is... difficult and... rewarding. ~ Gloria Estefan
My mom has always been kind of my backbone. She keeps me strong. She is a mother, a friend. She is really everything to me. ~ Aerin Lauder
I am closest to my mother, as she is my rock, my pillar of strength, and my world. Not only has she stood by me through all times - happy, sad, and otherwise - but there have even been moments when I had completely lost hope, and her immense belief in me had lifted me up. ~ Amruta Khanvilkar
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
The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children. ~ Jessica Lange
My mother is a big believer in being responsible for your own happiness. She always talked about finding joy in small moments and insisted that we stop and take in the beauty of an ordinary day. When I stop the car to make my kids really see a sunset, I hear my mother's voice and smile. ~ Jennifer Garner
No mother wants to hear her son say he's gay. Those two words rip the picture of a daughter-in-law and grandchildren into pieces. I felt sorry for my mom and wanted her to know everything was going to be all right. But then she said, 'I don't really care, Johnny, as long as I know that you are going to be happy.' ~ Johnny Weir
My mother taught me to be honest, to be selfless, and to touch people in a positive way. ~ Scott Eastwood
My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent. ~ Ruth Bader Ginsburg
I think my mother... made it clear that you have to live life by your own terms and you have to not worry about what other people think and you have to have the courage to do the unexpected. ~ Caroline Kennedy
Happy Mother's Day!
