Happy Mother’s Day to every mom, grandma, mother-to-be, special aunt, wife (because having a husband is often like having a kid), puppy mama, and honorary mother out there. I hope you have a beautiful day surrounded by the people you love.
In the words of some of history’s most prolific writers:
“Whatever else is unsure in this stinking dunghill of a world a mother’s love is not.” ~ James Joyce
“God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.” ~ Rudyard Kipling
“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in all its perfect power.” ~ Maya Angelou
“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 troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavour by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” ~ Washington Irving
“The best place to cry is on a mother’s arms.” ~ Jodi Picoult
“All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his.” ~ Oscar Wilde

If your mom could use a laugh … if she’s ever referred to her home as her “castle” or poked fun at her “prince” … even if she misses “Desperate Housewives” … skip the flowers this year and give her an early beach read with Desperately Ever After. Bonus: It costs less than a Hallmark card 😉
