I have a confession to make... my mother generally reads this newsletter (Hi Mom!)..so you know I would be in whole bunch of hot water if I didn't take some time to acknowledge Mom's and Mother's Day…
This year I wanted to share some quotes about Mother's Day (Google is a wonderful service for finding quotes by the way). Some are funny, some are poignant and some are something in between, but they all have something to say about being a Mother…..
A suburban mother's role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after.
Peter De Vrie
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.
All mothers are working mothers.
When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty
God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.
A mother understands what a child does not say.

A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.
Before I got married I had six theories about bringing up children; now I have six children, and no theories.
You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around – and why his parents will always wave back.
William D. Tammeus
Insanity is hereditary; you get it from your children.
The one thing children wear out faster than shoes is parents.
John J. Plomp
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.
Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.
Thanks Mom!…and to all the Mom's and Mother's to be out there….Thank You!
