Flowers for Mother's Day

Recharging the batteries and enjoying family this Mother's Day weekend. But first,
I offer a few flowers--and thoughts--to those who happen to drop by. Enjoy!

"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever
to have your heart go walking around outside your body." --Elizabeth Stone

"What feeling is so nice as a child's hand in yours? So small, so soft and warm,
like a kitten huddling in the shelter of your clasp." --Marjorie Holmes

"All babies need a lap." --Anonymous

"You may have tangible wealth untold;
Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be
I had a mother who read to me." --Strickland Gillilan

"There are two lasting bequests we can give our children.
One is roots. The other is wings." --Hodding Carter, Jr.

"The precursor of the mirror is the mother's face." --D.W. Winnicott

"When I was a child, my mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll
be a great general. If you become a monk you'll end up as the pope.'
Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso." --Pablo Picasso

"There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it." --Chinese Proverb

Happy Mother's Day!
