What is a Mother?

“[Motherhood is] the biggest gamble in the world. It is the glorious life force. It’s huge and scary–it’s an act of infinite optimism.” —Gilda Radner

“Love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves its own mark … to have been loved so deeply .. will give us some protection forever.” —J.K. Rowling

“Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.” —Oprah Winfrey

The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men – from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

“Acceptance, tolerance, bravery, compassion. These are the things my mom taught me.” —Lady Gaga

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. ~Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty

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 trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
~Washington Irving

A mom’s hug lasts long after she lets go. ~Author Unknown

God could not be everywhere, so he created mothers.

Because I feel that in the heavens above
The angels, whispering one to another,
Can find among their burning tears of love,
None so devotional as that of “Mother,”
Therefore, by that dear name I have long called you,
You who are more than mother unto me.
~Edgar Allan Poe

From our conception, we are connected to our mother. She is the soil we were grown in, her blood flowed through us until we were born. We have the deepest connection with our mother- even if circumstance led her to having us adopted, or we were mistreated in a real or perceived way, a deep connection remains.

If your mother is alive, Mother’s Day is a great day to call and express love. If she lives close. it’s a great day to visit or have a meal together. If you do things together ;do something.

If there is baggage, make peace with it.
