Basic Biittner : M is for ...

Friday, May 7, 2010

Mother's Day is Sunday.

For all of you kids (of all ages) who are fortunate enough to still have your mom, I've gathered a few pearls of appreciation for motherhood that have been generated through the ages.

To wit:

"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." ~Tenneva Jordan

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

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

" All mothers are working mothers" ~Author Unknown

" Mother - that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries." ~T. DeWitt Talmage

" God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers" ~Jewish Proverb

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

" The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness" - Honore de Balzac, author

" By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class."

- Anne Morrow Lindbergh, author

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

There are many, many more, but for now, I'll just say "Happy Mother's Day" to all moms -- and 'Thank You' for all you do.
