Quotes and Illustrations to Honour Moms

In a month we will mark the day for celebrating mothers in North America.  To begin this blog I wanted a quote that I felt would be appropriate for Mother's Day and found myself unable to make the choice.  There were far too many, too-perfect examples.

Whether they reminded me of my own mom,  or those of my cousins and friends, whether they described the type of mom I hope I am in at least some small measure, they were honest, heart warming, sometimes humorous, tributes to the women who give and nurture life.

"A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie." — Tenneva Jordan

"If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been." — Robert Brault

"The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find foregiveness." — Honor√© de Balzac

"She never quite leaves her children at home, even when she doesn't take them along." — Margaret Culkin Banning

That was just a sampling of some ofthe beautiful quotes I found at: Quote Garden Mothers They would be perfect for anyone looking for text to accompany a special Mother's Day project.  For images to go along with them, check out these wonderful collections of illustrations:
