Mother’s Love

George Washington said: “My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.”

President Gordon B. Hinckley on motherhood:  “Most of you are mothers, and very many of you are grandmothers and even great-grandmothers. You have walked the sometimes painful, sometimes joyous path of parenthood. You have walked hand in hand with God in the great process of bringing children into the world that they might experience this estate along the road of immortality and eternal life. It has not been easy rearing a family. Most of you have had to sacrifice and skimp and labor night and day. As I think of you and your circumstances, I think of the words of Anne Campbell, who wrote as she looked upon her children:

You are the trip I did not take;

You are the pearls I cannot buy;

You are my blue Italian lake;

You are my piece of foreign sky.

(“To My Child,” quoted in Charles L. Wallis, ed., The Treasure Chest [1965], 54)

You [mothers] are the real builders of the nation wherever you live, for you have created homes of strength and peace and security. These become the very sinew of any nation.”  ~Gordon B. Hinckley, “Women of the Church,” Ensign, Nov 1996, 67

“Be a Mother who is committed to loving her children into standing on higher ground than the environment surrounding them. Mother’s are endowed with a love that is unlike any other love on the face of the earth.” – Marjorie Hinckley

“All I am, or can be, I owe to my angel mother.” – Abraham Lincoln

Just some quotes that I was thinking of after taking the photos of Thato and her little man Reba.  Motherhood is a divine privilege and it was an absolute honour to be able to Capture the Moment at this stage of their lives.  Cannot wait to photograph the whole family 🙂
