Here are some quotes that I think exemplify the role of a mother:

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.--Tenneva Jordan

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.--Honoré de Balzac

An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.--Spanish Proverb

One good mother is worth a hundred schoolmasters.--George Herbert

Mothers are life sustainers, they meet the day to day physical needs of their children. Good mothers meet those same needs, as well as the emotional and spiritual.

Mothers are selfless agents who bear their children, before and after birth. They will go without, to ensure their children have their needs met. They will sacrifice their own desires until they can be sure the children get what they must have in order to survive, and thrive.

God bless mothers everywhere, today and everyday.

*Addendum: I stumbled onto this after I posted this. You have to see this:

To all of the mothers who read this blog:

Happy Mothers Day
