Officially, Happy Mother's Day
These photos are reminders of how precious life and time are. The girls in these photos lost their mother at tender ages.
On this Mother's Day, I wish all mothers a wonderful day, and for all who've lost their mothers, I hope all memories brighten your day. The nicest and most meaningful gift any mom will receive today are the words, "Happy Mother's Day, I love you."
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh
She never quite leaves her children at home, even when she doesn't take them along. ~Margaret Culkin Banning
A daughter is a mother's gender partner, her closest ally in the family confederacy, an extension of her self. And mothers are their daughters' role model, their biological and emotional road map, the arbiter of all their relationships. ~Victoria Secunda
The desolation and terror of, for the first time, realizing that the mother can lose you, or you her, and your own abysmal loneliness and helplessness without her. ~Francis Thompson
Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes, by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins, comrades and friends - but only one mother in the whole world. ~Kate Douglas Wiggin
