I’ve been collecting mom quotes lately. Sometimes I read something and it’s perfect…exactly what I would want to write or say if I were actually eloquent or poetic. And other times, I read something that makes me laugh out loud. Today, in honor of mothers everywhere, I am sharing them with you. I hope something strikes a chord or makes you laugh!
And a happy Mother’s Day to my own mother, who really is an incredible woman (I’m not just saying that). Growing up, she was the weirdo mom from Holland in the sweatpants and rain boots (her uniform). She fed us bean sprouts and pea soup, cod liver oil and fresh squeezed juice. She became a single mom in our teen years, and I am only now truly appreciating the courage and strength it took for her to get a job, pay for college and raise the three of us. She lives not half a mile away now, is the best Oma to her six grandchildren, and still brings me over cod liver oil (pill form now) and veggies on a daily basis. A health nut (and plain nut) before her time, she’s a true friend and a role model to all of us.
I love you mom! ♡
UPDATE (May 8, 2015):
I made this a printable! I had to re-arrange and take out some quotes, but now you can print it for your mom (or your girlfriends, or grandma, or aunt…the list goes on!)
