I pulled these mama images off of Pinterest. They are so beautiful to me (especially that last one;)! I also found  a few quotes for Mother's day weekend...

“A mother knows what her child's gone through, even if she didn't see it herself.” 
― Pramoedya Ananta ToerGadis Pantai 

“The best way to keep children at home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant, and let the air out of the tires.” 
― Dorothy Parker

“Mothers are all slightly insane.” 
J.D. Salinger

“It's come at last", she thought, "the time when you can no longer stand between your children and heartache.” <<this one makes me instantly tear up, but I do love this quote!
Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

“The great motherhood friendships are the ones in which two women can admit [how difficult mothering is] quietly to each other, over cups of tea at a table sticky with spilled apple juice and littered with markers without tops.” 
― Anna Quindlen

“Thus far the mighty mystery of motherhood is this: How is it that doing it all feels like nothing is ever getting done.” 
― Rebecca Woolf

& lastly...

"She is my first, great love. She was a wonderful, rare woman - you do not know; as strong, and steadfast, and generous as the sun. She could be as swift as a white whiplash, and as kind and gentle as warm rain, and as steadfast as the irreducible earth beneath us."
― D. H. Lawrence

As a mama, all of these hit right home. Motherhood has been the biggest adventure, the most difficult job I have had and that which has made me feel the deepest love. Props to you if you're a mama! Cherish your mother- she went through labor and changed your diapers, you know. ;)
