Me and my wonderful mom, Cynthia Garrett

Thoughts on Motherhood

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving

I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life. ~Abraham Lincoln

A little girl, asked where her home was, replied, "where mother is." ~Keith L. Brooks


A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest. ~Irish Proverb

It is not until you become a mother than your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding. ~ Erma Bombeck

A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path. ~ Agatha Christie


My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her. ~ George Washington

The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world. ~William Ross Wallace


Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful, wonderful, precious mother! I love you more than I could ever express!

How blessed you are to still have your Momma. I miss mine so much but am so thankful for the rich heritage she left for me.

Great post Cindy!
