My mom has always been kind of my backbone. She keeps me strong. She is a mother, a friend. She is really everything to me.
One of the greatest titles in the world is parent, and one of the biggest blessings in the world is to have parents to call mom and dad.
That's who my mom is. She's a listener and a doer. She's a woman driven by compassion, by faith, by a fierce sense of justice and a heart full of love. So, this November, I'm voting for a woman who is my role model, as a mother, and as an advocate. A woman who has spent her entire life fighting for families and children.
The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.
Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.
My mother's wonderful. To me she's perfection.
My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.
You need a strong family because at the end, they will love you and support you unconditionally. Luckily, I have my dad, mom and sister.
My mom is definitely my rock.
I was always at peace because of the way my mom treated me.
You know the best part of being a mom is getting that love. Honestly, you know, my son's love... a child's love is so pure, it just makes you feel so good no matter what.
The most inspiring piece of advice I've gotten is simply to persevere. My mom taught me to always keep going no matter what from an early age. When it feels too difficult to push forward, I always remind myself, 'This too shall pass,' and then I redouble my efforts.
My parents couldn't give me a whole lot of financial support, but they gave me good genes. My dad is a handsome son-of-a-gun, and my mom is beautiful. And I've definitely been the lucky recipient. So, thank you, Mom and Dad.
When you're sick, nobody takes care of you like your mom.
I am very proud of my mom and consider her the most courageous woman I know. With perseverance, sacrifice and hard work, she raised a family of Olympic athletes and gave us the tools and the spirit to succeed. That is something that my brothers and I will always be thankful for.
My dad said, 'Stay humble, and you gotta work harder than everybody else.' My mom said, 'Always be yourself.' She always told me only God can judge me.
First and foremost, it's my mom and dad who gave me the foundation, the belief in me that I could do anything.
The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom.
That strong mother doesn't tell her cub, Son, stay weak so the wolves can get you. She says, Toughen up, this is reality we are living in.
My mom and I have always been there for each other. We had some tough times, but she was always there for me.
