“Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.” – Lin Yutang
Mothers are often said to be the heart of the home, but what is a mother? Everyone has a definition of what a mother means. No mother is the same, just as no child is the same. However, here are some ways people have described mothers.
- The Foundation:
Mothers are the foundation that we build from, providing us support so that we may grow. They are what make us who we are today.
‘My mother is my root, my foundation. She planted the seed that I base my life on, and that is the belief that the ability to achieve starts in your mind.” – Michael Jordan
“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” – Abraham Lincoln
- Wonderful Beings:
Mothers are the world to their children, much like their children are the world to them. There is something about mothers that is indescribable and unimaginable.
“My mother’s wonderful. To me, she’s perfection” – Michael Jackson
- The Forgivers:
Mothers have this amazing ability to forgive and forget.
“The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.” – Honore De Balzac
- Endless Love
The love a mother shares with her children has no end. They can be total monsters, but at the end of the day, they are still her beautiful babies.
“Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.” – Robert Browning
Mother’s are the comforters, supporters and forgivers. They dedicate their lives to their children, spending countless hours worrying about them. The sacrifice mothers put in for their children is something that can never be repaid. Unfortunately, motherhood is often underappreciated and does not get the proper thanks it deserves. We wanted to let every mother out there know that we appreciate everything they do. Thank you for all the love you give and continue to give. Happy Mother’s Day!
“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.” – Agatha Christie
For all you children out there, young and old, what have you done for your mother that shows how much she means to you? Send her something nice this Mother’s Day.
