|Willow Tree - Tenderness|
“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and
sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity;
when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us,
still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts
and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and
cause peace to return to our hearts.” ― Washington Irving
This week is dedicated to all mom's everywhere including our angel moms. She who goes by many names including ma, mama, mum, mother, mumsy, mamman, mutter, mathair, mor, madra, majka, maji, mater and my favorite, she who rules the roost. Yes I made that last one up but it's true isn't it! My mother ruled the roost with love and schedules when I was growing up, keeping me and my four siblings in line. Which is probably why we are all so organized to this day with our day planners and white boards and charts. *grin*
Your mission this week is to read a book about moms or with mom characters or with mother in the title. Or spell out mother or ma or use one of the many variations, reading one book per letter in the title.
19 Badass Literary Moms Who Need To Be Celebrated
Who is your favorite literary mom? Two of my favorite moms are Molly Weasley from Harry Potter and Charlotte Mira in J.D. Robb's In Death series who later in the series becomes like a surrogate mom to Eve. So very sweet yet tough.
Happy Mother's Day, my lovelies.
