Mother's Day 2013 Quotes by a Mom

By: Cherry Moriones Doromal

Mother's Day 2013 Manila Philippines-- To honor the mothers, motherhood is celebrated on various dates in different parts of the world. For instance, this year, Mother's Day in the United States as well as in the Philippines will be celebrated on May 12th, whereas, the so-called Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom will be celebrated on March 10th.The modern Mother's Day is said to have originated in the United States in the early 20th century.

Regardless of the date, it is always proper to recognize our mothers!

Before I got married about thirteen years ago, I never thought I would have a family of my own because I was very much enjoying a blissful social and professional life being single!  But, I tell you, from the moment I lived with my husband and upon the birth of my first and second son and up to this moment that I'm writing this blog, my joy is just indescribable. For the gift of family and motherhood, I thank the Good Lord!

Motherhood is worth contemplating about, really! For that, let me share with you these quotes by me:

“Motherhood is an opportunity given only to women. It is also an opportunity to prove the type of woman you are. When others see the kids, they see the mom in them.”

“Come to think of it, motherhood is a privilege that even the most fulfilled men in the world can never achieve. Enjoy and treasure it!”

“You may not be a mother; but, certainly, you have a mother! The purpose of motherhood is completed through the child. Everyone is part of the process. There is a reason to rejoice! “

“Motherhood is a mission, an accountability, a purpose and a life-long profession. Once you are called to become a mom, there’s no day-off, no turning back… no excuses.”

“Motherhood is my primary career; all the other dealings are either investments to sustain my ‘motherhood career’ or sidelines and hobbies. “

Most importantly..."Did you know that God our Father is also our Mother? The Bible mentions of God’s motherhood to us in various verses such as that found in Isaiah 66:13 that says: As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem."
