FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO PLAN TO BE GREAT MUMS,
THOSE OF YOU, WHO ARE GREAT MUMS,
THOSE WHO HAVE GREAT MUMS
THOSE OF YOU WHO HAD GREAT MUMS…
entrepreneurial Mothers don’t eat quiche; they don’t have time to make it.
entrepreneurial Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.
entrepreneurial Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.
entrepreneurial Mothers know that dried play dough doesn’t come out of shag carpets.
entrepreneurial Mothers don’t want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.
entrepreneurial Mothers sometimes ask ‘Why me?’ and get their answer when a little voice says, ‘Because I love you best.’
entrepreneurial Mothers know that a child’s growth is not measured by height or years or grade… It is marked by the progression of Mama to Mum to Mother…
4 YEARS OF AGE – My Mummy can do anything!
8 YEARS OF AGE – My Mum knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 YEARS OF AGE – My Mother doesn’t really know quite everything.
14 YEARS OF AGE – Naturally, Mother doesn’t know that, either.
16 YEARS OF AGE – Mother? She’s hopelessly old-fashioned.
18 YEARS OF AGE – That old woman? She’s way out of date!
25 YEARS OF AGE – Well, she might know a little bit about it.
35 YEARS OF AGE – Before we decide, let’s get Mum’s opinion.
45 YEARS OF AGE – Wonder what Mum would have thought about it?
65 YEARS OF AGE – Wish I could talk it over with Mum.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!
Please celebrate the wonderful and beautiful entrepreneurial mothers in your life, you included (if the cap fits).
If you don’t, nothing bad will happen, but if you do, something good will… You will boost a Mother spirits
