Random Quotes on being a Mom of Sons

Someone gave me a tiny “coffee table” book titled, The Love Between Mothers and Sons.  It is edited by Helen Exley.  This cute little book is victorian in style and each page has a quote or two with a beautiful picture facing it.  It’s all quotes from famous people about being a mom of sons or from a son about their mom.  I thought I’d share my favorites with you!  As you read them, think not only about yourself as a parent or a child of a parent but also think about Mary, the mother of Jesus.  Compare your feelings with what you can imagine hers were.  I’ll bet they won’t be all that different. . . . .

“Mothers don’t really have premonitions.  They have been over every possible evetuality so often- both good and ill- that whatever happens to you, they’ve rehearsed it.” – Pam Brown, b. 1928

“In the effort to give good and comforting answers to the young questioners whom we love, we very often arrive at good comforting answers for ourselves.” – Ruth Good

“Every breath she ever breathed, every effort she ever made, every prayer she ever prayed was for her son. . . . The greatest break that Francis (Frank) Albert Sinatra ever enjoyed in his entire life, in  his entire career, was to have Dolly as a mother.”  Reverend Robert Perella

“Everybody knows that a good mother gives her children a feeling of trust and stability. . . Somehow even her clothes feel different to her children’s hands from anybody else’s clothes.  Only to touch her skirt or her sleeve makes a  troubled child feel better.” – Katharine Butler Hathaway

A happy childhood is one of the best gifts that parents have in their power to bestow.”  -R. Cholmondeley
