Some mothers are loving, and some are stern – some mothers are warm and some are austere. But no matter how your mother shows up, be grateful for her, because without her, you simply wouldn’t be here. The gift of life and breath are the greatest blessings we have – let’s celebrate the institution of motherhood with a few comments from famous children about their mothers:
“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
My mother is a walking miracle. ~ Leonardo DiCaprio
The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men — from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms. ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother. ~ Oprah Winfrey
If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands? ~ Milton Berle
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
I regret not having spent more time with my mother. ~ Barack Obama
For those who are fortunate enough to still have their mothers, celebrate her contribution to your life in some meaningful way – for those who do not, remember her fondly, and be grateful for the time you did have with her. And for those of you who are mothers, or who will be, thank you, on behalf of children of all ages everywhere, for the role you play in making our world a better place. We can celebrate our mothers not only once a year each May but everyday.
