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)
