Mother’s Day

by Hilary Gauntt on May 13, 2017

“Nothing is really lost until your Mom can’t find it!” Unknown

“Any Mother could perform the jobs of several air traffic controllers with ease.” Lisa Alther

“Great sisters get promoted to Aunt.” Unknown

“Grandmothers are the people who take delight in hearing babies breathing into the telephone.” Unknown

“I want my children to have all the things I couldn’t afford. Then, I want to move in with them.” Phyllis Diller

“When I was a child, my mother said to me ‘If you become a soldier, you’ll be a general. If you become a monk, you’ll be the Pope.’ Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.” Pablo Picasso, Aritst

“Of all the haunting moments of motherhood, few rank with hearing your own words come out of your daughter’s mouth.” Victoria Secunda, psychologist

“Imagine a novel in which a woman took in a stranger who was unable to walk or talk or even eat by himself. She fell completely in love with him at first sight, fed and clothed and washed him, and gradually helped him to become more competent and independent,spent more than half her income on him, nursed him through sickness, and thought about him more than anything else. And after about 20 years of this she helped him find a young wife and move far away. Caring for children is an awfully fast and efficient way to experience at least a little saintliness.” Alison Gopnik

Blessings to all the women of the world who hold us all together. I credit my beautiful Mother Virginia, and daughter Brittany as world class.
