Mother's Day!

So, I really did think ahead this week and we bought Mother's Day cards Tuesday night and dropped them to the post office on Wednesday afternoon to be sure that the special Mommas in our life would get their cards BEFORE Mother's Day....  Well... Everyone did except MY MOM!  :(  I am so sad about it!

So, I decided to have a little tribute to my mom on the blog... :)  Sorry if some of these pics embarrass the heck outta you. It's out of love, I promise! :)

Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love.  ~Mildred B. Vermont


I cannot forget my mother.  She is my bridge.  
When I needed to get across, she steadied herself long enough for me to run across safely.  
~Renita Weems

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,Women and Beauty

 What are Raphael's Madonnas but the shadow of a mother's love, fixed in permanent outline forever?  
~Thomas Wentworth Higginson


Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.  
~Marion C. Garretty


I love my mother as the trees love water and sunshine - she helps me grow, prosper, and reach great heights.  
~Terri Guillemets

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert 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

Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes, by dozens and hundreds.  Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins, comrades and friends - but only one mother in the whole world
 ~Kate Douglas Wiggin

If I was damned of body and soul,
I know whose prayers would make me whole,
Mother o' mine, O mother o'mine.

~Rudyard Kipling

I love you.  Happy Mother's Day.
