• A Mother's Job

    by  • May 9, 2013 • Education


    Mothers have the most difficult job in the world but most often unappreciated. They are the nurses, accountants, referees, financial advisors, health consultants, doctors, attorneys, psychologists, teachers, chauffeurs, maids, bankers, cooks of their own home. They do so much to shape and mold the lives of their children hoping that one day they will make a difference in this world. And when the time comes, to a teen it’s all about being independent and leaving home but to a mother it’s all about letting go of a child she has nurtured half her life.

    Here are some quotes to enjoy about what mother’s have done for their children:

    “All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”

    – Abraham Lincoln

    “The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.”

    – Jessica Lange

    “Women have always been the strong ones of the world. The men are always seeking from women a little pillow to put their heads down on. They are always longing for the mother who held them as infants.”

    – Coco Chanel

    “She is the mother I never had, she is the sister everybody would want. She is the friend that everybody deserves. I don’t know a better person.”

    – Oprah Winfrey

    “When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”

    – Sophia Loren

    “It is not until you become a mother that your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding.”

    – Erma Bombeck

    “A mother’s arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them.”

    – Victor Hugo

    “You count the hours you could have spend with your mother. It’s a lifetime in itself”

    – Mitch Albom, For One More Day

    “Mothers can forgive anything, Tell me all, and be sure that I will never let you go, though the whole world should turn on you.”

    – Louisa May Alcott, Jo’s Boys

    “My mother’s love has always been a sustaining force for our family, and one of my greatest joys is seeing her integrity, her compassion, her intelligence reflected in my daughters.”

    – Michelle Obama

    “Being a mother is hard and it wasn’t a subject I ever studied.”

    – Ruby Wax
