After a good quote- Being a mum Rss

I am after a quote to write on a card for a friend on being a mum. Something along the lines of how wonderful & rewarding it is.
Any sugg wld be gr8

Mumma of 3.

I have a wall hanging with the quote
"We can not do great things in this world, we can can only do small things with great love." - Mother Theresa.

I don't think it's about mothers in particular but I love it.

"There is only two bequests we can hope to give our children, one is roots and the other wings."

I love this quote as it so reminds me of what we want for our children to stay grounded yet dream to fly.

hope it helps
I don't have a quote but I have a poem that I love (it might be a bit long to write in a card though,lol)

Before I was a Mum

I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunisations.

Before I was a Mum - I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mum
I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mum
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to
put them down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I
couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mum.

Before I was a Mum -
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so
important and happy.

Before I was a Mum -
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every
10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache,
the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mum.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a
Awww just wanted to say, that poem is beautiful smile
