the central figure in every family's life,
who has the quality of a professor,
the patience of an angel,
the power of Tarzan
the unique habit of keeping her family together as a united one,
with that special kind of love which we cannot see,
we as her kids can only feel it, smell the atmosphere of the cozy surrounds at home as we never could ever feel elsewhere...
at home with Mom is always the best! !
her cookies are the most delicious ones
we love to talk about her in superlatives
Mother a place to hide when we have fear or anxiety,
under Mother's wings is always a peaceful homecoming...
daughters love to write a great tribute to Her
as well as to Mothership
Some quotations from different sources I put down here:
First from the Bible:
'Honour thy mother and thy father' Bible: Exodus
'As is the mother, so is her daughter' Bible: Ezekiel
And now from other sources:
'So for the mother's sake, the child was dear'
'And dearer was the mother for the child' (Samuel Taylor Coleridge 'Sonnet to a Friend Who Asked How I Felt When the Nurse First Presented My Infant Child to Me')
'All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That is his' (Oscar Wilde The Importance of Being Earnest)
And the last quotation is mine:
'A Mother is the complete human being on earth,
the caring and loving person,
the only one to whom daughters write the greatest tribute,
the safest place to come home...
a Mother is like Home....' (Sylvia Frances Chan)
