mother's day weekend - part II

The important thing is not how much we accomplish, but how much love we put into our deeds every day. That is the measure of our love for God.
~Mother Teresa

There is an instinct in a woman to love most her own child - and an instict to make any child who needs her love, her own.
~Robert Brault
All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.
~Abraham Lincoln
The woman is the heart of the home. Let us pray that we, women realize the reason of our existence: to love and be loved and through this love become instruments of peace in the world.
~Mother Teresa
Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.
~William Makepeace Thackeray
How do we love? Not in big things, but in small things with great love. There is so much love in us all. We must not be afraid to show our love.
~Mother Teresa

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, Women and Beauty The mother's heart is the child's school-room.
~Henry Ward Beecher
The most natural thing is the family life. What keeps the family together, what nourishes the life of the family together, is that surrender to each other; is that obedience; is that accepting of each other.
~Mother Teresa
What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life...and most importantly, cookies.
~Rudolph Giuliani
Grandma always made you feel she had been waiting to see just you all day and now the day was complete.
~Marcy DeMaree
I hope you all had a love-filled, family-filled Mother's Day while enjoying lots a late-night showing of Rio......junk food allowed...for dinner, no less!Sometimes you just have to throw schedules and proper bedtimes right out of the window!

Happy Mother's Day!
