For all the Mothers


Motherhood is the greatest potential influence for either good or ill in human life. The mother's image is the first that stamps itself on the unwritten page of the young child's mind. It is her caress that awakens a sense of security; her kiss, the first realization of affection; her sympathy and tenderness, the first assurance that there is love in the world.

  3. What a wonderful quote. Reading that made me feel so important. I am always in awe at the power of the mothering instinct. That part of me that aches when I hear a baby--any baby--crying hard, unhappy. The part that makes me run over to a child I don't know who's fallen down and skinned their knee and is crying. It's so strong and powerful, it just amazes me. I love your "motherhood" posts this week.

  6. That picture is JOY.

    There is no greater moment than when you see that sweet spirit for the first time.

  8. Why is your hair so luscious and gorgeous after delivery and not plastered to your head like mine always is??? Seriously. My postpartum picture will look nothing like that.

    In all seriousness, the picture and quote are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Yeah, really, I thought the same thing....She looks to good to have just had a baby...hair beautiful, hands and face not puffy. Leave it to you to look good in a hospital gown.

    I really love this quote, and the reminder of what a privilege it is to be "Mom."
