To one who bears the sweetest name,
And adds lustre to the same.
Long life to her, for there’s no other.
Who takes the place of my dear mother.
How did you find the energy, Mom
To do all the things you did,
To be a teacher, nurse and counsellor
To me, when I was a kid?
How did you do it all, Mom,
Be a chauffeur, cook and friend,
Yet find time to be a playmate?
I just can’t comprehend.
I see now it was love, mom
That made you come when I would call.
Your inexhaustible love, Mom
And I thank you for it all.
A face only a mother could love
A mother hen
Be tied to mother’s apron strings
Experience is the mother of wisdom
A mama’s boy
He that would the daughter win, must with the mother first begin.
Like mother, like daughter
Necessity is the mother of intervention
Mother tongue or mother country
Mothers and daughters are closest when daughters become mothers.
I never knew how much love my heart could hold until someone called me mommy.
Life doesn’t come with a manual; it comes with a mother.
Guinness Book of World Records:
The greatest recorded number of children born to one mother is 69. This was in the 1700’s in Russia. In 27 pregnancies, M. Vassilyeva gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets. So, 16 x 2 = 32 plus 7 x 3 = 21 plus 4 x 4 = 16 for a total of 69 babies.
