Famous Quotes |
Usually it is our biological mother or permanent mother substitute who
profoundly influences our perceptions about ourselves,
our lives, and our significant relationships.
Brenda Hunter, In the Company of Women: Deepening Our Relationships with the Important Women in Our Lives
... a child needs to experience the quirks, the individuality, and the "selfish" needs of a mother.
A child would find the "perfect" mother "too good"; a "perfect" mother would be unable to provide
the rough and ready experiences of loving and being loved by a person with her own needs and interests,
whose attention shifts and sometimes fades, whose moods fluctuate, whose emotions have their own
character and rhythm. A good-enough mother is necessarily not a perfect mother, and she reveals her diverse humanity to her child.

Daughters - see your mom as a woman who can share valuable
guidance based on her journey.

Mothers Day Poems |
The mother-daughter relationship is at the headwaters of every woman's health.
Our bodies and our beliefs about them were formed in the soil of our
mothers' emotions, beliefs, and behaviors. Even before birth, our
mother provides us with our first experience of nurturing.
She is our first and most powerful female role model.
It is from her that we learn what it is to be a woman and care for our bodies.
Our cells divided and grew to the beat of her heart.
Christiane Northrup, Mother Daughter Wisdom
Even though my father was very strict with us, my dear mother
was exactly the opposite. Maybe it was because I was the baby
of the family that she
treated me specially - but, whatever the reason, whenever I
thought about my mother, I envisioned an angel.
Ludvik Wieder, I Promised My Mother

rewarding position I will ever hold.
Cathy Shaffer, Conversations With My Daughter: Love is patient. Love is kind.
If every mother in the United States could wrap her mind around her true value as a woman and mother,
her life would never be the same. We would wake up every morning excited for the day rather than feeling as though
we'd been hit by a truck during the night. We would talk differently to our kids, fret less about our husbands' annoying habits,
and speak with greater tenderness and clarity. We would find more contentment in our relationships, let mean remarks roll off our backs,
and leave work feeling confident in the job we performed.
