    Well I'm no mother (It'll be hard for me to even marry LOL :D)

    But I'll wish all of you who are mothers (including my own Mom), a VERY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY :)

    What is a Mother?


    A mother is someone who not only gives you life,
    But someone who teaches you wrong from right.
    A mother is someone who cries with you when your world falls apart.
    Someone to confide in when you’ve got a broken heart.
    She is someone who listens when you need an ear.
    Someone who dries up your river of tears.
    She is someone who loves you unconditionally.
    Someone who protects you faithfully.
    She stays by your side at night when you’re sick or in pain.
    She is the one to shelter you from the rain.
    A mother is the person who will try to cheer you up when you are down.
    She will hold you when you’re sad and try to make you smile instead of frown.
    She will always put you in front of all the rest,
    Because you are her baby, which makes you the best!
    A mother is the one to discipline you when you’ve made a wrong choice,
    But she will still be the one at every choir concert to hear your voice.
    A mother is the one to take you out trick-or-treating,
    Then check all the candy to make sure it’s worth eating.
    She is the one to buy those great new shoes you’re dying to own.
    But she never complains, not a sigh, not a groan.
    A mother is a caregiver, but yet she’s so much more.
    Sometimes I don’t think we realize what mothers were put here for.
    A mother is your backbone,
    The one to give your heart a home.
    A mother is very special and should be treated with care.
    Because the love a mother gives is so very very rare.

    As a mother, I thank all of you for the good wishes. Nice poem Rita! I might add a mother is someone who still loves you, even if you don't phone or come for a visit.

    Happy Mothers Day to all mothers at the wilders forest. They have a very special place in the world and much more power then the world understands. I am a true believer in the hand that rocks the cradle theory....

    As for Mercurie's spouse she is a fine mother and does a excellent job of tending the nest. ;)

    I hope all the Mothers have a great day. I just went and visited my Mom this morning, and now I am taking the girls out shopping for their Mom. I suppose she will want me to cook tomorrow too(anyone know the number to pizza hut, LOL)

    Sorry ~ I just can't resist !​






    Too many beautiful pics ~ too many nice Motherhood Quotes !!​








    ~~~~~~~~~​






    Honore' de Balzac: Motherhood Quotes​




    The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.






    Tenneva Jordan: Motherhood Quotes​




    A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.






    Sophia Loren: Motherhood Quotes ​




    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.




    Irish Proverb: Motherhood Quotes: ​





    A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.






    Rebecca West: Motherhood Quotes​





    Motherhood is the strangest thing; it can be like being one's own Trojan horse.







    Barbara Ehrenreich: Motherhood Quotes​





    Take motherhood: nobody ever thought of putting it on a moral pedestal until some brash feminists pointed out, about a century ago, that the pay is lousy and the career ladder nonexistent.






    Honore De Balzac: Motherhood Quotes​




    A mother who is really a mother is never free.





    ~~~~~~~​








    Jill Bennett: Inspirational Mother's Day Quotes​





    Never marry a man who hates his mother, because he'll end up hating you.






    Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis: Inspirational Mother's Day Quotes​





    If you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do well matters very much.






    Dorothy Canfield Fisher: Inspirational Mother's Day Quotes​





    A mother is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary.






    Golda Meir: Inspirational Mother's Day Quotes​





    At work, you think of the children you have left at home. At home, you think of the work you've left unfinished. Such a struggle is unleashed within yourself. Your heart is rent.







    Gregory Nunn: Inspirational Mother's Day Quotes​





    Anyone who doesn't miss the past never had a mother.






    Florida Scott-Maxwell: Inspirational Mother's Day Quotes​





    No matter how old a mother is, she watches her middle-aged children for signs of improvement.







    Elaine Heffner: Inspirational Mother's Day Quotes​




    Women do not have to sacrifice personhood if they are mothers. They do not have to sacrifice motherhood in order to be persons. Liberation was meant to expand women's opportunities, not to limit them. The self-esteem that has been found in new pursuits can also be found in mothering.







    Germaine Greer: Inspirational Mother's Day Quotes​





    All that remains to the mother in modern consumer society is the role of scapegoat; psychoanalysis uses huge amounts of money and time to persuade analysis and to foist their problems on to the absent mother, who has no opportunity to utter a word in her own defense. Hostility to the mother in our societies is an index of mental health. :D
