"A mom forgives you all your faults, not to mention one or two you don't even have."
"If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been."
"A mom reads you like a book, and wherever she goes, people read you like a glowing book review."
"What is a mom but the sunshine of our days and the north star of our nights."
"Every mom aspires to be the World's Greatest Mom, and by some crazy quirk of logic, most succeed."
"Eventually you realize that the reason God didn't always answer your prayers is that He was answering your mom's prayers."
"There is a time early in life when there seem to be countless reasons for happiness, and then you discover your mom is making them up."
"Every mom knows how to play the single mom and does so exactly to the extent her marriage requires."
"Every kid tries to find out how much he can screw up and still have mom blame herself."
"Through both their lives, a mom never stops chasing her child down to the water's edge."
"Eventually you realize that your mom knows exactly who you are and has been trying to break it to you gently all your life."
"A mother sees past our excuses to the real reason it's not our fault."
A mother always counts to ten
And never, never peeks
But always knows just where you hide
And there she never seeks
Until the very nick of time
Lest tears run down your cheeks.
