Mothers and daughters are closest, when daughters become mothers. ~Author Unknown
It is as grandmothers that our mothers come into the fullness of their grace. ~Christopher Morley
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving
There came a moment quite suddenly a mother realized that a child was no longer hers. … without bothering to ask or even give notice, her daughter had just grown up.-Alice Hoffman
|With our Mommy!|
We would be remiss if we didn’t recognize the women who loved and sacrificed so that our husbands could grow up into the wonderful men they have become. They are both amazing fathers and husbands and we owe these women a debt of gratitude for that!
Men are what their mothers made them. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
We deeply appreciate our mothers-in-law and want to wish both…
What do girls do who haven’t any mothers to help them through their troubles? ~Louisa May Alcott
Mom, we love you deeply and feel blessed that you are not only our mother, you are our friend. We both hope that our own daughters will feel the same way about us as we do about you. We even hope they will call us on the phone as many times a day as we call you!
You are always ready and willing to “help us through our troubles”.
You are an incredible “Nonna” to our kids and a loving mother-in-law to our husbands.
You instilled in us a love for homemaking and traditions and Little House on the Prairie.
But the most important legacy you have given us is your love for the Lord.
Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
We love you,
Good job girls…as a mom there are two things that give us great joy…one..to know that our children walk with the Lord..two..that are children get along…your mother must be very proud
I am smiling as I sniffle. What a loving tribute.
What a beautiful tribute to your Mom AND to your Mother-In-Laws! I am sure you both are blessings in all their lives! Happy Mother’s Day sweet girls! xxooDiana
I am so with you on the friendship and phone calls part. I hated letting my “little” girl go off to college and the big city this past year, but… I love the million and one phone calls and a random text every once in awhile that just has a picture of my sweet smiling girl or, better yet. The ones that simply say… “I love You…”
Be still my mothering heart.
Happy Mother’s Day to you all!

P.S. Vanessa, the cornice for your little girl ROCKS!! I am inspired!
Happy Mother’s Day (late) to the whole lot of you.
I think we can safely say that your mom did an awesome job of raising daughters.
BTW, I have to copy down half of those quotes for later use on my blog. They are wonderful.
And tell your mom that she was a beautiful bride. I’m sure she already knows that, but tell her anyway.
What a beautiful tribute to your mom!!! <3
