Musings On Motherhood

George Washington, who lost his father at the age of 11, had this to say about his mother, “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.”

Here’s a great quote by David McKay that sums up motherhood, “The noblest calling in the world is that of mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after painting shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give.”

Enjoy some photos from a Mother-Daughter brunch that was held today in honor of Mother’s Day at George Washington Inn. A picture of Mary Ball Washington, George Washington’s mother, is also included. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge.
