  • "A mother is someone who dreams great dreams for you,
    but then she lets you chase the
    dreams you have for yourself and loves you just the same."

  • A good Mother is someone who gives and equal balance of Love, and discipline. She teaches the child to be humble, and respectful. Hardworking, and Loving. She teaches the child to love him/herself, and to respect others. Being a good Mother is the hardest job in the world...

  • A woman mature enough to not try to cause their child pain just because they don't agree with them. A woman that will always side with and never give up on their child, even at the risk of looking foolish.

  • A good mother is someone who loves her children, is a firm but kind disciplinarian, isn't unwilling to adapt HER situations for the needs of her children, a patient woman, and a woman who isn't afraid to admit that she might not know everthing so she's willing to learn from other sources.

  • A mother is patient, and her love is kind.
    She does not envy her children,
    She does not boast about them to hurt others,
    She is proud of their most simple accomplishments.
    She is not rude to her children, and does not seek to live through them.
    She is not easily angered, and keeps no record of wrongs.
    A mother's love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
    She always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.

    Adapted from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 "Love is..."
