It’s Mother’s Day folks, and there’s no superhuman on this earth I love and respect more than my mother. You can call me a Momma’s boy all you want, but it’s funny how guys like Abe Lincoln and George Washington loved and respected their moms, too!
Here are a few quotes I found online…
“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.” — Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
“God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.” — Jewish proverb
“The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.” — Honore’ de Balzac (1799-1850)
“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 (1732-1799)
“By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class.” — Anne Morrow Lindbergh (1907- )
“I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” — Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
I owe everything to my mom. From the unconditional love that comes through even in your biggest screw ups to the unbeatable mac and cheese, she’s made me who I am today.
You should do it every chance you get, but make sure you call your mother or “motherly figure” and tell them how much they mean to you today.
They’re the ones that give any of us the chance at being AWESOME in the first place! I love you, Mom!
