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.  ~Tenneva Jordan

Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.  ~Author Unknown

A suburban mother's role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after.  ~Peter De Vries

Mother - that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries.  ~T. DeWitt Talmage

God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.  ~Jewish Proverb

A mother understands what a child does not say.  ~Author Unknown

It would seem that something which means poverty, disorder and violence every single day should be avoided entirely, but the desire to beget children is a natural urge.  ~Phyllis Diller

I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me.  They have clung to me all my life.  ~Abraham Lincoln 

Women's Liberation is just a lot of foolishness.  It's the men who are discriminated against.  They can't bear children.  And no one's likely to do anything about that.  ~Golda Meir

A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.  ~Irish Proverb
Before I got married I had six theories about bringing up children; now I have six children, and no theories.  ~John Wilmot

Now that... my kids are grown, I understand how much work and love it takes to raise and to keep a family together.  The example of your strength, devotion, and patience is now rippling through the generations.  Thank you!  ~Forest Houtenschil

What great Mothers Day quotes! I laughed so hard at the suburban mom one - turns out it applies to suburban grandmothers too - especially those, like me, who are granny nannies. :)

I am praying for Nick!

Happy Mother's Day! :)

I can't help but believe that taking God and the Bible out of schools has led to a lot more bullying. It is so sad. I don't remember a lot of that kind of thing going on back when I was in school. Thank you for calling attention to this real problem today.
Hope you had a Happy Mother's Day.
