Birthday Wishes to a Mother



Mother is a verb. It’s something you do. Not just who you are



A mother’s love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.



A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.



A mother’s arms are more comforting than anyone else’s.



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.



My favorite thing about being a mom is just what a better person it makes you on a daily basis.



I believe the choice to become a mother is the choice to become one of the greatest spiritual teachers there is.



A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.



In a child's eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe



My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.
