 If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go 
where a prayer has not already been.  ~Robert Brault

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

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

Children and mothers 
never truly part -
Bound in the beating 
of each other's heartCharlotte Gray

A man's work is from sun to sun,
 but a mother's work is never done.  ~Author Unknown

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

There is an instinct in a woman to love most her own child - 
and an instinct to make any child who needs her love, her own.  ~Robert Brault

and to this most special mom,
bristol's birth mom,
you have given us the greatest gift
and our hearts are bonded forever.

All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.
-- Abraham Lincoln

She never quite leaves her children at home, 
even when she doesn't take them along.  ~Margaret Culkin Banning

Because I feel 
that in the heavens above
The angels, whispering one to another,
Can find among their burning tears of love,
None so devotional as that of "Mother,"
Therefore, by that dear name I have long called you,
You who are more than mother unto me.
~Edgar Allan Poe

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

This Mother's Day
I am thankful 
Joey and I were blessed with 
amazing, beautiful moms.
And that God chose me
faithful enough
to give me 
perfect blessings
to hold, kiss, love, 
wash, scold, teach, 
juggle, provide for,
counsel, hug, drive,
read to, cook for, wash for,
clean up after, stay up all nite with,
comfort, carry, spank,
learn from, cuddle,
eat sweets with, play games with,
and on and on.
May I be to each of you,
the greatest Mom you could dream.
