Real Mothers

I received this in an e-mail the other day. It really touched my heart and the words are so very true. I remember going through these exact feelings about my mom. Of course I'm at the 35 years plus stage. I just wanted to share these amazing words with all the other moms out there. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Real Mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.

Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of carpets.

Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.

Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' and get their answer when a
Little voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade...

It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother....

4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!

8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!

12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.

14 YEARS OF AGE - Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either.

16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's hopelessly old fashioned.

18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!

25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it.

35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.

45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?

55 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the
Figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a
Woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her
Heart, the place where love resides. The beauty of a woman is not in a
Facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is
The caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the
Beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

Remember to hug your mother today.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.



  1. I liked the age chart--how true, how true.

  2. That is sooo true!! I am glad I figured out how amazing my mom is when I was 18 instead of in my 30's!

  3. this is so nice! can i post it on my site too? :D

  4. I don't think any of us would disagree with it!

  5. I still ask Mom. Then I get mad because she can't remember. :)

  6. Now that is just beautiful! I love that. I'm so glad you posted it!

  7. Very sweet! But I know you there is no kitchen utensils in the sand box, sticky floors would make you nuts and no way would you have dried playdough in the carpet. But you do have a very happy wonderful little girl.

  8. That was great

    And Yeah I really don't want to know what the vaccum just sucked up :P

  9. Very nice - thanks for sharing :)
