Mothers. Mine is my hero and best friend, the most amazing, interesting, and wise person I've ever met, my inspiration, my shield and my rock. Truly, there is no other person in existence like her. She's stood by me through what seems like an eternity of ups and downs, and as a new mother, I only hope I can live up to that kind of heroism for my baby boy.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes for mothers:
"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother." -Abraham Lincoln
"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 endeavour by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." -Washington Irving
"The God to whom little boys say their prayers has a face very like their mother's." -James Matthew Barrie
What's one of the qualities you love/loved most about your mom? Mine is a sucker for anything animal print, a trait both crazy and endearing. No matter where I am, if I see something in cheetah or zebra, I think of her and smile.
