I’m sure you all know that Mother’s Day will soon be upon us once more. This year my Mother’s Day will be different than it has been in the past because now I’m also a mother.
I’m celebrating being a mother. I’m celebrating all the wonderful things my mother has done for me and my family. I’m celebrating the way my mother-in-law raised my husband, because without him I don’t think I would be the kind of mother that I am. I’m celebrating having two loving grandmothers who were around to help instill their values in me and that they are still here to love on my little girl.
Today we celebrate mothers.
I decided to share some quotes about mothers a little before Mother’s Day so that all you crafty, Pinteresting people out there that might want a nice quote for a project still have plenty of time before the big day is here!
So, without further ado…
I love this quote.
There really is nothing like the love of a mother for her children. I can attest to this sentiment, there is truly nothing I would not do for my daughter.
She is my motivation.
Truer words were never spoken.
Never in my life have I been as happy as I have been the last 18 months of my life. (Through pregnancy and now 9 months with our Dragonling. ) However, I cannot remember a time I was this tired…
Seriously, not even in college.
Being a mom is hard.
It’s the hardest job I’ve ever had.
Why are there so many mothers criticizing other mothers? Why aren’t we more supportive of other women in the same shoes as we? What do we think we’re going to accomplish by putting down someone else who probably just needs a little support?
Next time you see a mother out with her kids and struggling in some way be supportive. Tell her she’s doing a good job.
Don’t tell her how you would handle it if they were your kids.
Don’t tell her what she should be doing differently.
Don’t make a stressful situation more stressful.
Just let her know that you believe in her.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Motherhood is the great equalizer.
It doesn’t matter where a child is from, what they’ve been through in their life, or if you agree with the lifestyle they’ve been raised with… When a child is hurting, every mother hurts. When a child is in need, every mother wants to fulfill that need. When a child is in danger, every mother wants to bring them to safety.
Mothers are one of the most precious commodities our world has to offer. We should appreciate them more often.
This week I found my quotes using the Mother’s Day quote finder from ProFlowers. The quote finder features 80 quotes from famous people about mothers. It was really hard to pick the best ones, and obviously I couldn’t put all 80 in this post so you should definitely go check it out for yourself! It might just have the perfect line for inside your Mother’s Day card. (And send Mom some flowers while you’re there. 😉 )
