Inspirational Quotes For Mother's Day

It can easily be said that being a mother is the toughest job in the world. You're a short-order cook, a babysitter, a diaper service, a confidant, a friend, a math tutor, a seamstress...the list goes on. As good at this as you are, even the best of 'mommies' need some inspiration from time to time. To that end, here are a few of my favorite quotes.

It's the moms of this nation-single, married, widowed-who really hold this country together. We're the mothers, we're the wives, we're the grandmothers, we're the big sisters, we're the little sisters, we're the daughters. You know its true, don't you? You're the ones who always have to do a little more.-Ann Romney
