When the Good Lord was creating mothers, He was into His sixth day of"overtime" when the angel appeared and said. "Youre doing a lot of fiddlingaround on this one."And God said, "Have you read the specs on this order?" She has to becompletely washable, but not plastic. Have 180 moveable parts...all replaceable.Run on black coffee and leftovers. Have a lap that disappears when she standsup. A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a disappointed love affair.And six pairs of hands."
"God could not be everywhere and therefore he madeMothers,"
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existedbefore. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother issomething absolutely new.
“In a childs eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious orterrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commandslove either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest powerin the universe.”
A mothers love for her child is like nothing else in theworld. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things andcrushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.
"When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. Amother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child."
She binds her family in such a way that she never allows any one in thefamily to think that they are living in house made up of cement andbricks.
There are many different names for mother, some callher mum, or mom, or mommy or mamma, or just plainma. But, we all have a special place in our hearts forour mothers.
The Mother-child relationship is paradoxical and, in a sense, tragic. It requiresthe most intense love on the mothers side, yet this very love must help thechild grow away from the mother and to become fully independent.
