“The phrase ‘working mother’ is redundant.” ~Jane Sellman

“God could not be everywhere, so he created mothers.” ~Jewish Proverb

    Mothers eat the coffee-flavoured chocolate in the box, because no-one else likes it. They’ve been doing it so long they’ve got used to it.

  11. Mom’s are some of the best aren’t they! I’m so thankful for all of the mommies out there who work very hard for their families each day and the sacrifices that they make on a daily basis for the happiness of their family.
