Honoring Mother’s Day

by Hilary Gauntt on May 7, 2015

“Motherhood is a choice you make everyday to put someone else’s happiness ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is, and to forgive yourself over and over again, for doing everything wrong.”      Donna Bell

“I believe in love at first sight, because I’ve been loving my Mother since I opened my eyes.”

“All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my Angel Mother.”         Abraham Lincoln

“Making the decision to have a child – it’s momentous.  It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”

“The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers.  The original meal has never been found.”     Calvin Trillin

“Motherhood is the biggest gamble in the world. It is the glorious life force. It’s huge and scary – it’s an act of infinite optimism.”   Gilda Radner

“When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you hang up my first painting on the refrigerator, and I wanted to paint another one.  When you thought I wasn’t looking , I saw you feed a stray cat, and I thought it was good to be kind to animals.When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw you make my favorite cake for me and I knew that little things are special things.  When you thought I wasn’t looking I heard you say a prayer and I believed there is a God I could always talk to.  When you thought I wasn’t looking I felt you kiss me goodnight, and I felt loved. When you thought I wasn’t looking I saw that you cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be. When you thought I wasn’t looking I LOOKED….and I wanted to say thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn’t looking.”       Connie Back

Honoring my beautiful Mother and daughter Brittany, who were both born to be Mothers and are the heart and soul of their families.
