“Motherhood is the exquisite inconvenience of being another person’s everything.” —Unknown

“A mother understands what a child does not say.” —Jewish proverb

“Life began with waking up and loving my mother’s face.” —George Eliot

“A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.” —Cardinal Mermillod

Who I am

belongs to her,

a magical beginning.

Ladybugs in jars,

wagons and an old blue car,

mudpies and dogs and swinging.

Who I am

belongs to her,

even when I became a mother.

My youngest says she has “two mamas”

and never misses a chance to tell her.

Who I am

belongs to her,

on Mother’s Day

and every day before and after.

Nothing can measure all she’s done,

her hands and feet never rest.

So we will become what she hopes for us,

with our lives we will do our best.

Who I am

belongs to her,

a gift and an honor.

Forever I am blessed,

because I was her daughter.
