Mother's Day again...

Some things bear repeating.... Happy Mother's Day
"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, but only one mother in the whole world." --Kate Douglas Wiggin

"A boy's best friend is his mother." --Joseph Stefano

"Grandma always made you feel she had been waiting to see just you all day and now the day was complete. " --Marcy DeMaree

"Grandmas hold our tiny hands for just a little while.....but our hearts forever." --Author Unknown

"Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children." -- Alex Haley

"Grandmother - a wonderful mother with lots of practice." --Author Unknown
"Mothers all want their sons to grow up to be president, but they don't want them to become politicians in the process." --John Fitzgerald Kennedy

"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 troubles thicken 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

"A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them." --Victor Hugo "Over the years I have learned that motherhood is much like an austere religious order, the joining of which obligates one to relinquish all claims to personal possessions." --Nancy Stahl

"Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother."
-- Lin Yutang

"The phrase 'working mother' is redundant." --Jane Sellman

"The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother." --Theodore Hesburgh
"To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power." --Maya Angelou
"Youth fades, love droops, the leaves of friendship fall; a mother's secret hope outlives them all." --Oliver Wendell Holmes (1775-1817)

"All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. that's his." --Oscar Wilde

Happy Mother's Day to the beautiful mothers (and grandmothers) in my family!
