Happy Mother's Day!

A mother holds her children's hands for a while...their hearts forever.
-- Author Unknown

A mother understands what a child does not say.
-- Jewish proverb

It is not until you become a mother that your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding.
-- Erma Bombeck

I never knew how much love my heart could hold until someone called me "mommy."
-- Author Unknown

I'd rather be a mother than anyone on earth
Bringing up a child or two of unpretentious birth...
I'd rather tuck a little child all safe and sound in bed
than twine a chain of diamonds about my [carefree] head.
I'd rather wash a smudgy face with round, bright, baby eyes
Than paint the pageantry of fame or walk among the wise.
-- Meredith Gray
