The Grand Chase {best known as “Mothering”}

DSC_3765 - Rest“There was never a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him to sleep.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ava“You Are a Work of Art + You Are a Piece of Work = You are God’s Masterpiece.”
~ Alexandria Sage

Sheer Joy“How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about arithmetic and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No, a woman’s function is laborious because it is gigantic, not because it is minute.” ~ G.K. Chesterton

Mother Loads of Love“Some mothers are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same, and most mothers kiss and scold together. ~ Pearl S. Buck

First Held, First Glimpse“Life began with waking up and loving my mother’s face.” ~ George Eliot

Arms of Love“There is an instinct in a woman to love most her own child – and an instinct to make any child who needs her love, her own.” ~ Robert Brault

Katherine“A mother’s hug never really does let go. Her child is gathered in the arms of her heart at all times.” ~ Alexandria Sage

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers —those who’ve gone before us, those in our midst, and those mother’s to be.
To all the “other mothers”, who mother any baby or kid who crosses the threshold of their hearts.
And a special blessing to mother’s whose children preceded them in leaving this life too early. May God wrap you in tender memories, grace, and comfort today.
Peace, Alexandria

  1. Love the GK quote (homeschooler here, ex-public-school-teacher). The photos of moms with their babies are each so unique but the same. They (we) all feel like Eve when we have our own: surely no one in the universe has given birth before!


  2. Very lovely – well done.

  3. Too Beautiful…!
