Words of Comfort for the Motherless on Mother's Day

Greet and honor your mother for her contributions to your life. If you are fortunate enough to be able to call - or better yet, visit - some of those women today, do it.

Your smile brightens each day just as the morning rays shines on the hills and it's with doubt that this gives us the courage to face the new day with joy.

Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia, whose mother had organized women's groups to promote friendship and health, originated Mother's Day; on May 12, 1907, she held a memorial service at her late mother's church in Grafton, West Virginia. If you're far away, you can surprise her with item at your trusted online stores, special delivery for your mother.

If you're a mom that focuses all your energy on your kids and not your husband, I seriously recommend you make him your top priority, with your kids a very close second.

After all, it's Mother's Day, isn't it? "Really understanding that if we don't work together and consider all the responsibility we have to each other and to the future, that's our job as mothers!". Another let me play in the furniture store's display window: Patty.

God bless all mothers and grandmothers everywhere.

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you've had a baby... "I am so happy to share being the number one in the world with you".

You have shown your love through food and quilts (especially, grandma and Aunt Kate).

I hope you have a lovely Mother's Day! The simple notion that there are thousands even millions of people just like me saddened me but it also made me feel a bit of comfort knowing that I'm not alone.

The word mom backwards is still mom and upside down it is wow. Dad often referred to Mom's voice as 20/20.

Thank you for thinking and worrying about us.

Life doesn't come with a manual, it comes with a mother.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers across our great county.

For those caring for their mother in days of dementia: "Even if a mother forgets her child, I will not forget you, my beloved child". "She is my inspiration for why I am and who I am".

The mothers in my world see it differently. And candy! You take a box to Mother - and then eat most of it yourself. These mothers do not want a box of chocolate.

And I do remember a slight change in my mother when Gran died.

"It's getting kind of full", she said of the necklace.

As a thank you gesture to mothers at HSBC Malta, the bank created a little surprise. "And I cried and cried and cried!" she added.
