Mothers hold their children’s hands

Thank you Tammy for nominating me for the ‘3 day’s, 3 Quote challenge’. It really got me thinking because I love quotes and there are so many brilliant ones out there, so to narrow it down to only 3 will be difficult. But I’ll do my best.

I would like to start by telling you all to check out Tammy’s blog – Tammy’s reading/writing Life. It’s a great blog which leaves you waiting anxiously for the next post. Make sure you hit that follow button or you definitely will be missing out.

So the RULES:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day)
  • Nominate three bloggers each day

Easy really. Now to think of 3 quotes which I live by or mean a lot to me…


I love this quote! 


It’s such a touching quote, as a mum and as a child.

I know I have held my children’s hands, I have taught them to walk and led them to new milestones, I have picked them up when they have fallen and I hold them close to protect them everyday. I also know that I will let that hand go, they will venture into the world on their chosen path, they will learn to live their own lives and support themselves and I will not be able to protect them forever. But I will always hold their hearts in mine. Their hearts are part of my heart, my heart is no longer whole without them…

Wow, that was emotional! That’s how this quote makes me feel. It sends a shiver through me every time I read it because it describes my love for my children…

Even my youngest son understands how much I love this quote, he used it on this years Mother’s Day card that he made…




My 3 Blogger nominees today are:

  1. Head full of Dreams
  2. Over the Hill on the Yellow Brick Road
  3. Southernly Favoured

If you wish to accept the challenge – I look forward to reading your quotes, please don’t forget to link them back to me.

Thank you for reading…

  7. Heartwarming quote. As a mother of two I understand the difficulty in letting their hands go so they can venture alone. My daughters almost 15 and my sons about to start secondry school. It’s scary. My hand holding days are over, but I’ll never let them out of my heart. 😥
