God's greatest gift to man is that of woman and child. 

"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

"The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother."

How much I love you I can't say:
It's more than words can hold.
You're all at once my rich, red clay,
My potter and my mold.

Yours the words that shaped my voice,
The spirit within mine.
Yours the will that shaped my choice,
My fortune, and my sign.

How lucky I was to have had you
At the core of me!
Wise and good, you always knew
Just what I could be.
And so I came to be someone
Whom I could be proud of.
For this I give my swollen sum
Of gratitude and love.

Here is a bouquet for all you Mom's and I hope your day is filled with love, laughter, family and friends.

In Loving Memory Of My Wonderful Mother

Oh that is so nice......I don't have my Mum and at nearly 45 I still miss my Mum :-). I work in aged care and it is so precious to hear women in their 80's say they still miss their Mums too :-)

Hi Tweetey30, This is true, yet I feel all GOOD mothers whether working or not should be recognized for their selflessness and commitment to family. :o)
