“Can a woman’s tender care
Cease toward the child she bare?
Yes, she may forgetful be,
Yet will I remember thee…….lyrics from Hark my soul

No language can express the power, and beauty, and heroism, and majesty of a mother’s love. It shrinks not where man cowers, and grows stronger where man faints, and over wastes of worldly fortunes sends the radiance of its quenchless fidelity like a star. ~Edwin Hubbell Chapin

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan

Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love. ~Mildred B. Vermont

A suburban mother’s role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after. ~Peter De Vries

The phrase “working mother” is redundant. ~Jane Sellman

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

If the whole world were put into one scale, and my mother in the other, the whole world would kick the beam. ~Lord Langdale (Henry Bickersteth)

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

Some mothers are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same, and most mothers kiss and scold together. ~Pearl S. Buck

If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been. ~Robert Brault, rbrault.blogspot.com

A Freudian slip is when you say one thing but mean your mother. ~Author Unknown

Sweater, n.: garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly. ~Ambrose Bierce

Women’s Liberation is just a lot of foolishness. It’s the men who are discriminated against. They can’t bear children. And no one’s likely to do anything about that. ~Golda Meir

The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men — from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness. ~Honoré de Balzac

All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his. ~Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest, 1895

Yup, Cami, my mother can be the same way. I just have to keep telling myself that even though she has a big mouth, too bossy/domineering, and like to start “trouble”, she means well in her own way. She and my sister constantly clash and butt heads too, but that’s because they are way too much alike, like you said.

Many years ago, my best friend at the time who was clairvoyant introduced me to one of my spirit guides. I remember asking my guide (through my friend) how can I thank her for helping me. All she told me to do was to buy a gift and do something nice for my mother. Since then, anytime I receive a big blessing in my life that I am grateful for, I pay it forward by doing something out of the blue for my mother that would make her happy. My mother and I are both headstrong, have completely opposite personalities… Read more »

Good to know I’m not the only one on board who can admit to being ying and yang with mother. My mum and I have a’ love- don’t like’ relationship (not hate, although when I was a teenager I swore I hated her). Same like you, I always buy her things or share my good fortune with her. She don’t like me because I’m not successful as she like, and I don’t like her because I believe some of her actions in my early childhood threw me off course. She have ‘goat mouth’ and I hate when she say negatives… Read more »

Truth is…not all women fit the full criteria of motherhood. Many women granted the gift of motherhood are absolute failures, so the punishment for not revering one is just idealism.

I love my mother, but it come with limits and although it has limits I’ll kill somebody for her.

Big up the the fathers like my dad and my uncle (raised my girl cousin on his own from 2 months old). Love my mom to death I wish she would come to foreign but she doesn’t want to leave Jamaica. She showed me about spirituality and how to always be on my guard with people. Love my dad he is the pillar of my thinking. Never a negative from him always driven, optimistic and do anything for us-

Hi Obara Meji and ESP clan!

[email protected] pum pum…

Truly a challenging test when it comes from your own flesh and blood and especially where two strong personalities are concerned. He is lucky you are fully conscious of your power because any other mother would have cursed him not knowing the effect of her words. IFA says “patience is the father of all virtues” but it is not easy to be patient. If I had a facety son, can I throw red dust on him? Lol (serious question though).
