Happy Mother’s Day!

I had a real, imperfect, wonderful mother growing up. I’m also inexpressibly blessed to share my life with the marvelous mother of my children, my wife Trudy!


“A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” ~Tenneva Jordan

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

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

“Every beetle is a gazelle in the eyes of its mother.” ~Moorish Proverb

“The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.” ~Honoré de Balzac

“Mothers are the gardeners of the human race.”

~Anna A. Rogers


Say it with me: “Thank you, Mom! So, um, is anyone gonna eat that last piece of pie?”
