    Real Mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.

    Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.

    Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.

    Real Mothers know that dried playdough doesn't come out of carpets.

    Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.

    Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' and get their answer when a little voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

    Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade...It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother...

    The Images of Mother

    4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!

    8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!

    12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.

    14 YEARS OF AGE - Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either.

    16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.

    18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!

    25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it.

    35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.

    45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?

    65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.

    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair ... The beauty of a woman must be seen from her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul . .. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    My two regrets in life is that my Mother never got to meet my wife (now ex) and our children. I know that she would have loved them as much as they would have loved her.

    Believe that she knows them even if they haven't met here. She looks down on them everyday and you as well. And she waits with open arms, praying that she has to wait a very long time..........................:angel:

    Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there........

    Especially the ones who don't satisfy the strict definition of a biological mother, but mean more to some child than words could ever tell, as they generously give their love and devotion so freely. This could be a foster mom, a precious aunt that was unable to have children, or a substitute grandmother. The fortunate children in these situations don't care that the lineage has been fractured; they only understand love when they see it.
