In Celebration of Mothers by Kristin Wallace

So I have the happy coincidence of my designated blog day on Sweet Romance Reads also being on Mother’s Day this year. I don’t have children myself, but I have the best mother in the world (and I am totally unbiased in that feeling). I’d call her a super mom because she really was. She cooked, she sewed, and she was the Ms. Fix-It in the house. She could be tough but sweet. I got my love of reading from her, so my life as a writer can be laid right on her door. She single-handedly got me through math classes my entire school career. Mostly, she loves and believes in my, even though I’m sure my weird journey as a writer is not always something she understands.

I gathered up some great quotes about moms and I wanted to share them…

“God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.”
-Rudyard Kipling

“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”
-Abraham Lincoln

“Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.”
-Robert Browning

“Men are what their mothers made them.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Being a mom has made me so tired. And so happy.”
-Tina Fey

“My mother had a slender, small body, but a large heart—a heart so large that everybody's joys found welcome in it, and hospitable accommodation.”
-Mark Twain

“When your mother asks, "Do you want a piece of advice?" it's a mere formality. It doesn't matter if you answer yes or no. You're going to get it anyway.”
-Erma Bombeck

Now it's your turn! Tell me what made your mother so special...share a favorite story or memory or just something she taught you that you've never forgotten.

If you want to read a great book about mothers and daughters, please check out my latest release COMING HOME TO PARADISE, part of my Shellwater Key Tales series. It’s the story of one woman’s journey to connect with the legendary mother she was never able to please…and earn the forgiveness of the daughter who has every reason to hate her. You can buy it now on Amazon as well as Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and Google.
