WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A MOTHER
What does it mean to BE a mother? The word “Mother”, as defined by Websters Dictionary, means “a female parent”, a woman in authority, religious context; Mother Teresa, or an “old or elderly woman”; Mother Hubbard. It can also mean source or origin; “mother of all inventions” or used in vulgar situations;
Being a Mom doesn’t necessarily mean you have to have given birth physically. This term can affectionately be applied to all nurturers, of both sexes. It can also apply to those who care for and nurture any living creature whether of the two-legged persuasion or the furry or feathered. Being a mother is a selfless act. It’s when you put someone’s needs and welfare before yourself, that is the true meaning of being a “mother”. At least it is for me.
Words have power. Giving the gift of words can have a lasting impact on those you give them to when said from the heart. Enjoy this compilation of quotes for Mothers and by Mothers. Whether you prefer the endearing and sentimental approach to Mothers Day or the humorous, this compilation will be sure to please.

MOTHERS STRENGTH & LOVE
“Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws”, by Barbara Kingsolver, is a quote that could not be more accurate. There is nothing that compares with the strength of a mothers love.
The lessons we learn as mothers never end. Some can be life-changing, some can be humorous.
Nothing will carry you through motherhood more than laughter. Let’s face it, motherhood is the most difficult job in life. All the more reason to laugh about it. When you can laugh at yourself, the irony of your circumstance, or your moments, life is lighter. Hope these make you smile
No matter what kind of Mom you are, one thing is for certain:
