Mama Love

A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them.
 ~Victor Hugo

Motherhood,
nobody said it was easy, but it's worth every minute...
I am entering this for Inspiration Avenue's Weekly challenge and the topic is
Mother....

and Sweet Saturdays, over here at Diana's blog!
I think the love between a mother and a child is so special and sweet -
Have a great Saturday, my friends!

I always believe that a Mother's love is like no other. I was just with my Mom who celebrated 84 years young and I truly was in awe of her love and grace.
Sweet illustration. I feel to bond.

Such a sweet painting, the expression on mama's face radiates love. I can visualize that little bunny and Madeline becoming friends.

I love being a Mum - my son and I keep reading a book he got from the library about a mouse and his Mum and this picture reminds me so much of this and the wonderful close moments we share when we read it together! I don't know how we'll be able to send it back.
