“Mothers and their children are in a category all their own. There’s no bond so strong in the entire world. No love so instantaneous and forgiving.” ~ Gail Tsukiyama
“If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been.” ~ Robert Brault
“Sweater, n. Garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly.” ~ Ambrose Bierce
“There’s no bitch on earth like a mother frightened for her kids.” ~ Stephen King
“When your mother asks, “Do you want a piece of advice?” it’s a mere formality. It doesn’t matter if you answer yes or no. You’re going to get it anyway.” ~ Erma Bombeck
“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” ~ Washington Irving
from The Desk of MarDrag:
As we enter a weekend that leads to Mother’s Day on Sunday, today’s post pays homage to those special and ever enduring loves of our lives…our Mothers…of which I am one. All of the above quotes state so well the attributes of Mothers and embraces the wide variety of the different characters we take on to handle, resolve, or be there in all the different situations and circumstances we are faced with every day. And we would not have it any other way.
We are all the things our families and loved ones need us to be…at any given moment…and our love is boundless. So too, is our forgiveness, and ability to look deeply and, even at the toughest moment, still love.
A Mothers love is vast…our capacity to endure limitless…and our protection impenetrable.
So, let us honor ALL the Mothers, Step Mothers, Sisters, Aunts, Grandmothers, Great Grandmothers, Mothers In Law, Daughter Mothers, Mothers of the Animal Children and Inner Mothers and CareTaker Mothers…for from them all springs Life and Love…and with that Hope. Let us Nurture every Mother as she has Nurtured us. And let us not forget to honor that one last Mother on the list…our Mother Earth…who hangs in the heavens and supports us, just so we can have Life.
BLESSINGS AND LOVE TO ALL MOTHERS AND MOTHER FIGURES!
MAY YOU HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND!
