Holiday Greeting - What Makes Your Mom So Special?

May 06, 2015

When you think “Mom,” it’s likely your brain conjures up a scent or a story or a song that feels like home. Here are a few inspiring and heartfelt words that have been written about the value and importance of mothers:

“A mother enables you to realize that there are different levels of beauty and therein lie the sources of pleasure, some of which are popular and ordinary, and thus of brief value, and others of which are difficult and rare, and hence worth pursuing."
        --Amy Tan, Saving Fish from Drowning1

“Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.”
        --Barbara Kingsolver, Homeland and Other Stories2

“And from her great and humble position in the family she had taken dignity and a clean calm beauty. From her position as healer, her hands had grown sure and cool and quiet; from her position as arbiter she had become as remote and faultless in judgment as a goddess. She seemed to know that if she swayed the family shook, and if she ever really deeply wavered or despaired the family would fall, the family will to function would be gone.”
        --John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath3

"I am sure that if the mothers of various nations could meet, there would be no more wars"
        --E.M. Forster, Howards End4
