Don’t forget Mother’s day next Sunday

Well not always…but we like to think so…

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. – Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty

Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own. ~Aristotle

My mother loved children – she would have given anything if I had been one. ~Groucho Marx

God could not be everywhere, so he created mothers. ~Jewish Proverb

If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands? ~Milton Berle

There is a lot to say about Mothers….

Kiss me. Kiss me as if it were the last time.
When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

When Harry Met Sally


Promise me you’ll survive. That you won’t give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless.


It doesn’t matter if the guy is perfect or the girl is perfect, as long as they are perfect for each other.

 Good Will Hunting


Love means never having to say your’re sorry


To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love; but then one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer, to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love; to be happy then is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy; therefore to be unhappy one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you’re getting this down.
