M is for...


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.

My mom was more of a sports fan than I was. There was seldom a time when she didn't have some kind of sport on the TV. It became comforting!! :)

My mom loved all animals except cats, she hated them because they killed the birds! Ironically my cat's favorite place to sit is on my mom's wingback chair!

Sweet post! My mom collects little frogs and lizards, so those make me smile when I see them. Figurines, of course, not real frogs and lizards.

My favorite story of my Mom: we had dessert of mountain blackberry pie. It's our family favorite and there was enough for everyone to have a sliver. As my son was leaving the table with his plate, his slice slipped off and splattered on the floor. I quickly gave him my piece. My Mom turned around and gave me hers. She is where I learned the true meaning of selflessness in Motherhood.

Michelle, that brought tears to my eyes, because my mother Is the exact same way. She would rather give than have. I've always said if I can ever deign to be half the woman she is, then that'll really be something.
