Happy Mother's Day

A few interesting quotes for  Mother's Day:

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

It kills you to see them grow up.  But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn't.  ~Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.  ~Marion C. Garretty, quoted in A Little Spoonful of Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul

"The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness." - Honore' de Balzac

Happy Mother's Day to all of you who are Mothers - I wish you a day filled with love from you children, may they be near or far.
