Whether our relationship is strained
or easy, hostile or amiable, we need
our mother if only in memory ...
to conjugate our history, validate our
femaleness and guide our way.

~ Victoria Secunda

This week has been full of thoughts of my mother as am I trying to answer as honestly as possible the many questions posed by my daughter Grace in her attempt to get to know me better. She will be posting them on her blog, Graceful Simplicity on Mother's Day on May 9th.

If you would like to join her, add a link to her post:

"Pulling on the Apron Strings
Interviews with Our Mothers"

We would love to hear your stories about your mothers.

For some more inspiring words, join Tabitha at Fresh Mommy for other Sunday Citars.


  1. that verse so spoke to my heart today as I have been missing my Mom quite a bit lately. It always surprises me when it comes rushing back even after 13 years.

  2. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. I love my own mother so so much. She is the light of my world : ) Thank you for posting these sweet quotes about moms!

  3. This quote is soo honest. All relationships are not easy, sometimes especially with our mothers... why is that?!? But they are necessary in every way.

    Thank you for visiting me over at the Infamous! I hope you have a blessed week ahead


  4. That is a wonderful quote...there is a lot of truth to it!

  5. what a beautiful and truthful quote.

  6. Now I am thinking about my mother. Thanks! She passed away about 7 years ago; so I don't often think about Mother's Day anymore. I guess I will have to give it some thought. I actually committed this year to working on Mother's Day, as I haven't enjoyed that day very much. More thinking to do.
