    Praises for all mothers

    This book is a collection of endearing memories, opinions and quotes dedicated to the praises of all mothers out there whether they are mothers through childbearing or the Angels of Mercy who God sends to rescue those who don't have the maternal love from their mothers who birthed them. It's humorous, wise and solemn at times. An enjoyable read, possibly provoking thoughts and memories of your own mother as or those whose stood in the place of mothers who disowned their children, as you read. A book of reflections, reiterating that a mother's sacrifices, discipline and nagging are not too welcomed when we're young, but as the years roll by the voices of these woman stand to reason that 'mama's' ways weren't so bad after all in fact it's just what's needed to navigate in this life. It affirms that a mother's example, love, persistence, wisdom and sacrifices are as strong as the Rock of Gilbrator. The storms will come and the winds will blow, but nothing solidifies a person more than the firm foundation that a mother instills in her child. My favorite reminder was found in chapter one titled, 'BECAUSE I SAID SO'. I can definitely relate with that one.
