When we think of our mothers, whether those present or those who have passed, we acknowledge that we are joined at the heart. A mother’s love for her child is endless and deep. 

One of my university students gave me the following quote which defines that heart-felt love. It goes as follows:

No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you, a fter all, you’re the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.  (Golfian.com)


For as long as I can remember
You were always by my side
To give me support, confidence, and help. 

For as long as I can remember
You were always the person I looked up to
So strong, so sensitive, so pretty.

For as long as I can remember
You always provided stability within our family
Full of laughter, full of tears, full of love.

For as long as I can remember,
And still today,
You are everything a mother should be.

Whatever I have become is because of you
and I thank you forever for our relationship.
