Happy Mother's Day!

Hi Y'all!  It's Ashley, from Sweet Southern Prep!
Hannah, thanks so much for inviting me to guest post on such a special day!

Isn't it the most rewarding thing in life, to have a mother?
To be a mother?
Have someone you look up to as your mother?

These quotes are definitely ones to cherish.


Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.
~Author Unknown

 All mothers are working mothers.
~Author Unknown

Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.
~Marion C. Garretty, quoted in Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul

A mother understands what a child does not say.
~Author Unknown

A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.
~Irish Proverb

 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

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

 All women become like their mothers.  That is their tragedy.  No man does.  That's his.  
~Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest, 1895 

 There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it.
~Chinese Proverb 

And I think this one takes the cake...

 A man's work is from sun to sun, but a mother's work is never done.
~Author Unknown 
I'll agree to that, but well worth the work...wouldn't you mothers agree?

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there, or soon-to-be mothers!
I hope your loved ones spoil you rotten, you deserve it!
