Six Word Saturday


Today I realised that no matter how old your children are - you never stop worrying about them.

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. ~ Sophia Loren

Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials. ~ Meryl Streep

A mother is one to whom you hurry when you are troubled. ~ Emily Dickinson

There's nothing like a mama-hug. ~ Terri Guillemets

Mother - that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries. ~ T. DeWitt Talmage

Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; A mother's secret hope outlives them all. ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

It's not easy being a mother. If it were easy, fathers would do it. ~ From the television show The Golden Girls

Want to play along with Six Word Saturday, it's easy? All that's necessary to participate is to describe your life (or something) in a phrase using just six words. For more information, try clicking here. Feel free to explain or not explain. Add an image, a video, a song, nothing.

  5. I had a mother, once. I wish she were here so I could apologize.

  6. Fiona,
    Yes! Mom is hard never easy. I thought it would get easier when they where grown and out fo the house. I think I worry more now then I did when they lived here at home. Now they have beautiful grandbabies for me to worry about as well. Such blessing each one.
    Love the tour of your city. I must come and visit someday.
    I love those beahes. How beautiful they are.
    Have a wonderful day.

  7. i'm a full grown man, but there are times when i would find comfort in talking to my mom, even if we rarely agreed on stuff. she passed away a few years ago... no more talks.

  8. Aleluia! It's true. I still can't believe I am a mom!
