“Only mothers can think of the future because they give birth to it in their children.” —Maxim Grosky
"Love your children-and let them know you love them. Children who experience love find it far easier to believe God loves them." ~

“If love is as sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.” —Stevie Wonder
Loving a child doesn't mean giving in to all his/ her whims, to love him is to bring out the best in him, to teach him/ her to love what is difficult.
- Nadia Boulanger (French Composer)
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.
