The hand that rocks the cradle moves the world.
Somebody said that a child is carried in his or her mother’s womb for nine months. Somebody does not know that a child is carried in his or her mother’s heart for a lifetime.
Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you have had a baby. Somebody does not know that once you are a mother, normal is history.
Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct. Somebody never took a 3-year-old shopping.
Somebody said being a mother is boring. Somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a learner’s permit.
Somebody said good mothers never raise their voices. Somebody never came out the back door just in time to see her son hit a golf ball through the neighbor’s window.
Somebody said you do not need an education to be a mother. Somebody never helped her daughter with distance learning.
Somebody said you cannot love all your kids the same. Somebody does not have kids.
Somebody said a mother can find all the answers in books. Somebody has never had a child stuff beans up his nose.
Somebody said the hardest part of motherhood is giving birth. Somebody never watched her child get on the bus for the first day of Kindergarten.
Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married. Somebody does not know marriage only adds a child to the mother’s family.
Somebody said a mother’s job is finished when her last child leaves home. Somebody never had grandchildren.
Somebody said you never need to tell your mother you love her. Somebody is not a mother.
To mothers everywhere, we say thank you!
For the sleepless nights, thank you.
For the stressful days, thank you.
For everything you do day after day, thank you.
