"There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one."
"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life."
"Being a mother is learning about strengths you didn't know you had and dealing with fears you didn't know existed."
"Remember that behind every successful woman is a basket of dirty laundry."
"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 (ESV)
