"God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers." -- Jewish proverb

"The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness." -- Honore' de Balzac (1799-1850)

"My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her." -- George Washington (1732-1799)

"By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class." -- Anne Morrow Lindbergh (1907- )

Unfortunately, Mothers Day just reminds me that my mom is gone. But to those who ARE mothers, may you receive flowers and love!

Thank you so much for sharing these. Even though my mother and I are very different people and despite a painful personality flaw, I still owe much of what I am to the good things she embued in me -- and have worked like heck to overcome the other.

Hope you have a lovely day enjoying your mom's company.

Happy Mother's Day to All!

Turner Classic Movies has certainly been doing its best to commemorate the occasion beautifully.

Sometimes good things can happen -- even on television.

Thanks for all the beautiful pictures, Z. They help.

The song of the birds for mirth
You're nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
