Thanks so much, RachelleNH, for posting a few of my favorites things there--quotes! I just love words and their amazing power. And I don't know if there is a more inspiring subject than motherhood. 

Here are 8 of the quotes Rachelle found; I'm passing them on for you hard-working, dedicated, loving moms, for all you do and all you are...
