The Life of a Mom

Being a mom and a daughter is never easy and neither role is ever easy. Over the years I have stored up quite a few quotes to help me along on this mommy journey. Some quotes make me think, some sayings make me laugh and then there are others that tug at my heart. So, I thought it might be fun to share some mommy wisdom, especially with mothers day right around the corner.

There are many different names for mother, some call her mum, or mom, or mommy or mamma, or just plain ma. But, we all have a special place in our hearts for our mothers. Here are a few of my favorite quotes about being a mom . . psst... If you know some good sayings maybe you can share yours too!

Of all the things that come in numbers; plenty of rainbows, stars in the sky, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles cousins, you have but one mother.

The country clubs, the cars, the boats,
Your assets may be ample,
But the best inheritance
You can leave your kids
Is to be a good example.
- Barry Spilchuk

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when trouble thickens around us, still she will cling to us and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
~Washington Irving

What a beautiful article; I enjoyed reading it. This article should be read my mothers everywhere.

englightenedsoul on April 24, 2010:

I am really touched by this hub and this time honestly have no words to praise you. Amazing hub. Have bookmarked it. Seriously, I think no language would have any appropriate word to describe you and the beauty and passion with which you do your hubs. They are not appealing to the eye but also are a wealth of information. I am learning a lot from you and would continue to learn.

Rated Up!!!

Shari (author) from New York, NY on April 24, 2010:

~ hypnodude - now if you could translate that one for me in Italian it would be complete!!!! but I do thank you for stopping by and for the stumble,, ,great saying for 'mums' everywhere!!!!

Andrew from Italy on April 23, 2010:

Another wonderful hub wavegirl. I don't know how it goes around the world, but usually here when someone is really sick one of the words usually said is "Mum". At the end who cares about children during all their lives? Who is the person always there for you? A mum. Luckily mine is and has always been. Rated and stumbled. ;)

Jai Warren from Dallas, Deep Ellum, Texas on April 23, 2010:

Mothers' Day should be celebrated once a month not once a year! Shari, this is a very fitting tribute to moms everywhere. Love your pictures, especially the last, one toothy smile and one toothless. :))) Really enjoyed it, Bravo!

Sandy Mertens from Wisconsin, USA on April 23, 2010:

Ann - I am so happy to hear that! There is never enough time to always tell the ones we love how special they are and so important while we can to do it! Thanks for starting my day out with such an uplifting way! And to hear that you are bookmarking it really is special ;))

Ann Nonymous from Virginia on April 23, 2010:

No joke...just before I clicked on your hub much less read the title I was thinking I can't wait to talk to my mom tomorrow. There is so much I want to tell her. And now I am reminded of the many reasons she is so wonderful. I love your hub, wavegirl. Bless you for helping the bond between mother and daughter/child! Bookmarking it!
