"Motherhood is one of the most rewarding experiences of lift. Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul captures the essence of this precious experience." ----Chris Evert, tennis champion
She is the first to hold her children, then holds them accountable for their actions. She teaches her children to walk, then watches them walk down the aisle. She shields her children from nightmares, then encourages them to chase their dreams. "She" is a mother and now there is a book written especially for and about her.
Chicken Soup for the Mother's Soul pays tribute to motherhood--the universal calling that requires the skills of a master mediator, mentor, cook and counselor. These heartwarming stories celebrate the defining moments of motherhood from the triumphant to the trivial: from giving birth to developing a mother's intuition, from making special memories and surviving family life to letting go. Whether you are an expectant mother, a grandmother or you appreciate the maternal influence in your life, you will laugh, cry and reflect upon the joys and difficulties of being a mom.
From stories about moms-next-door to celebrity contributions from Barbara Bush, Reba McEntire, Joan Rivers and Erma Bombeck, the book relates shining examples of a mother's love that are cherished forever in the hearts and lives of the people they touched.
