Donald asks…

Does anyone know short quotes about mothers?

I’m leaving for college in June so I want to get my mom a ring with an engravement. I need a short quote daughter to mother, about 22 characters long. Technically she’s my step mom so if there is a quote about that too… Thanks!!!

richmama answers:

Hard to find one that short. My step-daughter gave me a little plaque that says “Mothers are a blessing.” These sites may give you some ideas.

John asks…

What are some love quotes relating to the sun?

What are some short, simple quotes relating to the sun (with the word “sun” preferably) about love, like something I can put on a Mother‘s Day card. (Not like a relationship love, but general love–daughter/mother) Thanks.

richmama answers:

I have modified these quotes to make it more like (general mother daughter love quotes) –

“I believe in my mom as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” – C.S. Lewis

“No matter how dark the night, somehow my mother, like the sun rises once again and all shadows are chased away” – David Matthew Click

“The moon’s an arrant thief,
And her pale fire she snatches from the sun.” – William Shakespeare

“The faults of my mom are like the sun and moon. They have their faults, and everyone sees them; they change and everyone looks up to them.” – Confucius

Chris asks…

Future mother-in-law sent my mom an email demanding to be included in wedding plans. How do I deal with this?

My FMIL sent an email to my mom yesterday stating that she “EXPECTS to go to all wedding dress scouting trips, wedding dress fittings, hair and makeup trials-in short anything that you and your daughter, my son’s fiancee will do as mother and daughter.” That is a direct quote from the email that FMIL sent my mom. My mom is highly insulted by this, because she and I had planned to do all the things listed as just the two of us. My mom feels and I told this to FH last night, that FMIL does not know her place as mother of the groom, that she is not mother of the bride and she does not get to do those things and does not have the right to expect that she will or to demand that she will be included like that. My mom sent FMIL back an email telling her that she had no right to make demands, especially since she was not paying for anything or had offered to pay for anything. And reminded FMIL that her son and I were having a traditional wedding whereby the bride’s parents are paying and hosting for it all. FH is mortified that his mom sent this email and has no idea why since his sister and his mom are very close-it is not like she is looking for a second daughter. FH is going to talk to his mom, but don’t you think FMIL is asking too much?

richmama answers:

Sounds like you inherited your good manners and selflessness from dear old mom.

A gracious bride would include the FMIL in all plans regardless of the money she is putting out.

I’m just sayin’.
