Mother's Worth

There are only two great pure loves in this world:
the love a Mother has for her Child
and the love a Child has for his/her Mother.
( Sherrie)

(Gratitude to Sydney for the following submission)

Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.

They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.

They don't take “no” for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without, so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.

They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.

Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member
yet they are strong when they think
there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can  heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colours.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman
is what makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas .
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say
and everything to give.


Dare to love yourself as if you were a rainbow with gold at both ends.
(Aberjhani ~ American historian, poet and editor)

Believing that you're beautiful is the first step
to understanding your worth as a woman.  (Anonymous)

A woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the  crowd.
The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places
no one has ever been before.  (Albert Einstein)

Debbie Moon's  first graders were discussing a picture of a family. A child in her class commented  that the boy in the picture had a different hair colour than the other family members.  One of her students suggested that he was adopted.  A little girl said, “I know all about adoption.  I was adopted.”  Another child inquired what it meant  to be adopted, so the little girl answered, “It means that you grew in your Mommie's heart instead of her tummy.”  (Sent by one of my ardent blog readers)

Man! She is Woman!

She is mother, daughter, wife, sister.
She is a Person!
She is strong, smart, crafty.
She is passionate, courageous, generous.
She is action, emotion, devotion.
She has Hope, Beauty, Power.
She has a brain and knows how to use it.
She Gives you Life!
She gives you respect, love and gratitude.
She believes in you.
She will nurture you; she will fight for you.
She deserves nothing less from you!

Every woman's heart has different instructions.  They're written through her eyes, in her smile, through her actions and in her tears.  She just has to find someone who cares enough to read them. (Anonymous)

Because everyone of us here today has (or had) a Mom & Grandmother whom we loved and was our 'first role model' in life. Three Cheers to the Life they chose to give us...and we honour them and their memories this very special day. We live on in memory of them all. The Purest Love of all ~ told to me many years ago by my very special Irish Grandmother ...Sara Flannagan Meehan.

  2. This special day honours us as Mothers and those before us. Memories do come alive and remind us of our heritage. Thanks Sherrie for your endearing comments.
