"Mother's Day"

~Photos taken on our Mother's Day adventure in the Smokies~

"No language can express the power, and beauty, and heroism, and majesty of a mother's love. It shrinks not where man cowers, and grows stronger where man faints, and over wastes of worldly fortunes sends the radiance of its quenchless fidelity like a star." -Edwin Hubbell Chapin

"A mother is a person, who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie." -Tenneva Jordan

"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life. -Abraham Lincoln

"The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness." -Oscar Wilde

"Call your mother. Tell her you love her. Remember, you're the only person who knows what her heart sounds like from the inside." -Rachel Wolchin

"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, sudden and heavy, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." -Washington Irving

"A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them." -Victor Hugo

"Being a mother means that your heart is no longer yours; it wanders wherever your children do." -Unknown

"What is a mom but the sunshine of our days and the north star of our nights." -Robert Brault

"A little girl, asked where her home was, replied, 'where mother is'." -Keith Brooks

"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

"The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom." -Henry Ward Beecher

"A man's work is from sun to sun, but a mother's work is never done." -Unknown

"Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever." -Unknown

"Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 'many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all'." -Proverbs 31:25-30
