“Mom quotes”: Mother – that one word that cannot be defined in a single phrase; that one word that embodies all the love a human being could possibly offer.
A mother is not just someone who gave birth to a child. If you ask me, a mother represents the combination of feelings, behaviors and sacrifices that occur while raising a child, whether the child is biologically hers or not.
She is the only woman in the world that will constantly forgive your lies, no matter how big they are. She will still give you that warm smile just minutes after you misbehaved and made her angry as hell.
A mom will endure the pain caused when you reject her and her kisses because you’re too cool to be seen with her when you meet your friends. She will be the only one supporting and lifting your spirit up whenever you’re feeling down.
Mothers leave all their personal needs behind so their children can have everything they need. They will not sleep or eat until you come home and they know you’re safe and sound. Mothers will protect their children with the price of their own lives.
A mother will do all these things with unconditional love, and she won’t stop just because you’re 50 years old and live in another country.
