Happy Mother's Day!

To all who have a mother, are a mother, or look forward with hope to being a mother- a few of my favorite quotes on the subject:

There is an instinct in a woman to love most her own child - and an instinct to make any child who needs her love, her own. 
 ~Robert Brault       


Women Know
The way to rear up children
 (to be just)
They know a simple, merry,
 tender knack
Of tying sashes, fitting baby shoes,
And stringing pretty words that make no sense,
And kissing full sense
into empty words.

~Elizabeth Barrett Browning

The mother's heart is the child's school-room. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother. ~Oprah Winfrey

The formative period for building character for eternity is in the nursery. The mother is queen of that realm and sways a scepter more potent than that of kings or priests. ~Author Unknown

Hope you had a lovely Mother's day with those three little boys. Cherish these moments, they grow up so fast. Your boys are adorable.
