Granted we are often guilty of forgetting to tell our nearest and dearest just how much we love them (even when they drive us up the wall), but Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to do just that.
On Sunday 26 March let’s all take a moment to remember that not only did your mum tolerate all your toddler tantrums, but also persisted in hours of arguments about eating your greens, brushing your teeth and going to bed on time.
Mums, we salute you.
“God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers”.
“Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.”
“The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.”
Honore De Balzac
“A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”
“Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.”
“A mother’s arms are more comforting than anyone else’s.”
“It’s not easy being a mother. If it were easy, fathers would do it.”
“Motherhood. All love begins and ends there.”
“I realised when you look at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know.”
“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dates all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.”
“A mother understands what a child does not say.”
“Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.”
