Moms the Word celebrates all motherhood with wise and witty words from,

-the rich (Rose Kennedy: “I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting and challenging as any honorable profession in the world.”),

-the famous (Oprah Winfrey: “Mothers are really the true spiritual leaders.),

-the funny (Erma Bombeck: “In general, my children refuse to eat anything that hasnt danced on television.”),

as well as thoughts that are,

-meaningful (Jewish proverb: “God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.”),

-memorable (Nora Ephron: “If pregnancy were a book, they would cut the last two chapters.”), and

-mirthful (Theresa Bloomingdale: “If your baby is ‘beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, an angel all the time, you're the grandma.”)

Sometimes it is hard to find something to give to a person who has meant so much to you. Look no further. You have just found the perfect present for any mother, or mother-to-be. Whether its for Mothers Day, Valentines day, their birthday, or any day you want to honor the joys of motherhood, Moms the Word is the gift that keeps on giving.
