And no one is more grateful for the many things you do

But I can always do my best to try and make you see
That you are truly wonderful, the greatest mum by far
A precious guiding light to me, a shining superstar

Mother Sayings: I
I AM NOT ALONE
And talking on the phone
I am pleasantly reminded
That I am not alone
Little tiny hands
A precious rounded knee
Pushing and twisting
That no one can see
Oh sweet child
Kicking up your heels
It is our little secret
That only I can feel
I look forward to your birth
When I can kiss your skin
But for now I will just smile
As I feel you play within
I gave birth to you, but you came with no instructions. All I knew was that I loved you long before I saw you. I know I made some mistakes and for that, I am sorry, but I was doing the best I could with what I knew. Everything I did for you , I did from love.
You are my child, my life, my dreams for tomorrow. I will always love you and there is nothing that could ever destroy my love for you.
I won't always cry Mummy
When you leave the room
And my supermarket tantrums
Will end too soon
I won't always wake, Daddy
For cuddles through the night
And one day you will miss
Having a chocolate face to wipe
You won't always wake to find my foot
Is kicking you out of bed
Or find me sideways on your pillow
Where you want to lay your head
You won't always have to carry me
In asleep from the car
Or piggy back me down the road
When my little legs can't walk that far
So cherish every cuddle
Remember them all
One day, Mummy and Daddy
I won't be this small
It’s such a grand thing to be a mother of a mother..
That’s why the world calls her Grandmother.
It’s the little memories that will last a lifetime.

Sophie, Amy & Julie (2010)
Mother is the name for God, on the lips and in the hearts of little children.
A mother’s soft and gentle touch
Her caring, tender hands
Know when her children need her
They seem to understand
They have a language of their own
Communicate so well
Speak softly to her children’s hearts
More than mere words can tell
A mother’s warm and loving arms
Can soothe a baby’s cry
The sweetest song of tenderness
In a mother’s lullaby
Her arms know when to hold them close
And drive away the fears
They comfort and protect you
‘til problems disappear
A mother’s kind, soft-spoken words
Can be a soothing balm
To smooth the stormy seas of life
And make the waters calm
Her soft voice whispers love to them
Sings to them as they sleep
Of angels that watch over them
Of how they guard and keep
There’s nothing like a mother’s heart
Her love, her prayers, her smile
God placed these all within her
To give back to her child
Mums are like buttons.. They hold everything together.
My child is my rainbow, my ray of Light in the darkest storms.
Who fed me from her gentle breast
And hushed me in her arms to rest
And on my cheek sweet kisses pressed
When sleep forsook my open eye
Who was it sang sweet lullaby
And rocked me that I should not cry
Who sat and watched my infant head
When sleeping on my cradle bed
And tears of sweet affection shed
When pain and sickness made me cry
Who gazed upon my heave eye
And wept for fear that I should die
Who dressed my doll in clothes so gay
And taught me pretty how to play
And minded all I had to say
Who ran to help me when I fell
And would some pretty story tell
Or kiss the place to make it well
And can I ever cease to be
Affectionate and kind to thee
Who was so very kind to me?
Sayings About Mothers: S
Some houses try to hide the fact
That children shelter there
Ours boasts it quite openly
The sights are everywhere
For smears are on the windows
Little smudges are on the doors
I should apologize, I guess
For toys strewn on the floor
But I sat down with my child
And we played and laughed and read
And if the doorbell doesn't shine
His eyes will shine instead
For when at times I'm forced to choose
The one job or the other
I'd like to cook and clean and scrub
But first I'll be a mother
Sayings About Mothers: T
The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.
The most precious jewels you'll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children.
There is a dance between baby and mother
Soft and slow and sweet
On all Earth there is no other
Than the dance between baby and mother
There is a reason some people think they can do anything..
They listened to their mothers.
Julie & Sophie (2007)
There's only one pretty child in the world... and every mother has it.
