MORE INSPIRING MOTHER'S DAY QUOTES


Dear friends,

I trust your celebration of Mother's Day is a memorable one. Beginning 2010, it has been my humble desire to bring to you inspirational Mother's Day sayings and quotes under one roof. In a way, I have succeeded. Over 2000 friends from across the globe have visited my blog during the past three days, mostly skimming through the quotes. I hope they are useful.

It has been a great pleasure to bring these quotes to you. And for the final time this Mother's Day, I'm bringing to you some more inspirational quotes. I hope and pray that they do not reach you too late.

May God continue to guide you and use you to be a channel of blessing to others.

Happy Mother's Day to you all!
