Why You Should Accept, Love, and Cherish Your Mother Despite All Her Shortcomings: 46 Quotes To Inspire You To Do So

Hi good people. On Valentine’s Day, I wrote a post in loving memory of my mother. After posting the article, I got overwhelming responses from the readers through email. From the responses, I concluded that people have different feelings for their mothers depending on various factors.

Most people love their mothers dearly, others have lukewarm feelings towards their mothers, while others have no connection with their mothers.

Something else that stood out from the responses is that a mother doesn’t necessarily have to be your biological mother. A mother is that woman who raised and nurtured you. She could be your biological mother, stepmother, foster mother, aunt, grandmother, etc. 


So, do you have a mother? If you do, I urge you to accept, love, and cherish her regardless of your relationship with her right now. The fact that she raised and nurtured you is reason enough for you to do so.

If you still have doubts about whether you should accept, love, and cherish your mother with her warts and all, read through these quotes. I hope these quotes will inspire you to love, cherish, and accept your mother.
