Happy Mother’s Day

The origin of Mother’s Day goes back centuries to the time of ancient Greek. It was to honor Reha, the mother of the gods. Later, it was celebrated the 4th Sunday of lent to Honor Mary, mother of Jesus. Eventually due to a religious order it was stretched to include all mothers and was called Mothering Sunday!

Enjoy the following quotes that I have reflected on during the days I needed a laugh and the days that I needed to be inspired! Have a great day!

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

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother, never.  A mother is something absolutely new.  ~Rajneesh

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

 

Most mothers are instinctive philosophers.
Harriet Beecher Stowe

Henry Ward Beecher, US Congressional clergyman

Who is getting more pleasure from this rocking, the baby or me?
Nancy Thayer, author

Working mothers are guinea pigs in a scientific experiment to show that sleep is not necessary to human life.

Parents often talk about the younger generations as if they didn’t have anything to do with it.

Maternity is on the face of it an unsociable experience. The selfishness that a woman has learned to stifle or to dissemble where she alone is concerned, blooms freely and unashamed on behalf of her offspring.
Emily James Putnam

Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.
Lin Yutang (Chinese writer)

To a child’s ear, ‘mother’ is magic in any language.
Arlene Benedict
