Happy Mother’s Day!


In order to commemorate Mother’s Day, I pick one of my favorite pictures of all time from my photo album and start with it. It perfectly represents, a particular moment I was flabbergasted by the beauty of Zebras (which are of course one of my favorite creatures in the world next to Birds), and at the same time blessed enough to get a glimpse of “mother’s love”…as I always say, I live for moments like this.  I also want to share few more pictures of, “Ethiopian mother and daughter moments” from the city of Addis Ababa along with my favorite quotes about Mothers and motherhood.

“Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.” AnonymousImage

“God could not be everywhere and therefore he made Mothers.” Jewish ProverbImage

“Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a Mother.”  Lin YutangImage

“I remember my Mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” Abraham LincolnImage

“The mother loves her child most divinely, not when she surrounds him with comfort and anticipates his wants, but when she resolutely holds him to the highest standards and is content with nothing less than his best.” Hamilton Wright MabieImage

Last but not least, I want to celebrate my mother and all the special moments with her. Image

Closing up with this insightful saying by Honore de Balzac “The heart of a Mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.”

Happy Mother’s Day To All Mothers!
