Great Quotes on Mothers…

First to my wonderful sisters Maureen, Kate, Margaret, Anne, Mary Ellen, Therese…Mothers All, you have taught me how best to be a Mom.

Just do it.   (to paraphrase Margaret Gertrude and Rena Mae long before Nike ads)

The moment a child is born a mother is also born.     Rajneesh

Motherhood, a kind of mad courage.       Robert Fulghum (paraphrase)

If you bungle raising your children, I don’t think whatever else you do well matters much.      Jackie Kennedy Onassis

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

I love you guys and am so profoundly grateful to all of you for raising the amazing children and grandchildren you have. In your actions I feel like Miss Barbara on romper room, I can see Margaret Gertrude, Rena May, Nellie Bellie , GB, Grandma Daugherty on the streetcar coming to Cleveland for Indians games and Grandma Babcock greeting Dad with that corncob pipe shoved in her smoking pocket. Grandma Kelly reading by oil lamp… all of them, right there and so proud of you.
