Here are several quotes for Mother’s Day in one big dose. 🙂

For those of you who need a reminder that, bottle or breast, working or at home, cloth diapering or disposables, scheduling or not, mamas are all the same when you get right down to it: Mothers were the same all through the centuries…a great sisterhood of love and service…the remembered and the unremembered alike. (from Anne of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery)

For those mothers who chose to love children that didn’t come from their own wombs, who do all the things a mommy does by choice and not by obligation: “Oh, dear. If you had a mommy, what would she do?”

“Oh, I’m sure she would hold me,” sobbed Choco.

“Like this?” asked Mrs. Bear. And she held Choco very tight. (from A Mother For Choco by Keiko Kasza)

Because our mamas have stood by us through all kinds of danger with no thought of desertion: “See,” said Hook in answer to Smee’s question, “that is a mother. What a lesson! The nest must have fallen into the water, but would the mother desert her eggs? No.” (from Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie)

 For the mothers of teenagers:
All three of Mrs. Weasley’s sons were taller than she was, but they cowered as her rage broke over them. (from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling)
For those who can’t remember who they were before they were mothers: My mom is da mom. She never had another life, like my dad, who was probably secretly a gung fu action hero spymaster assassin before he was a dad. She was always a mom—she was practically born that way—but that’s okay. She is really super-duper. She is not afraid of heights. She can climb a tree in two seconds flat and tear me—poor thing—from the grasp of the evil tree, just like that. (From Alvin Ho: Allergic To Girls, School, And Other Scary Things by Lenore Look)
