How to use mother in a sentence?

  1. P. J. O'Rourke:

    Anything that makes your mother cry is fun.

  2. Harish Iyer:

    My mother is like any other mother, she wanted to find me a partner and help me settle down. It became news only because I was looking for a man instead of a woman.

  3. Giorgos Kariris:

    It is very difficult to go on, day by day, it is very difficult for me and for others to wake up in the morning and not have the person you existed with in life -your child, your mother, your father - to embrace, to kiss.

  4. Montoya Major:

    My initial thought, when I found out I was pregnant, was, What am I going to do with a child ? i was living in Florida, away from all my family and friends. Having kids was never a thought of mine. I wanted to pursue my degree and establish a career. MOM SHOCKED TO FIND POLICE AT HOUSE PLAYING BASKETBALL WITH HER SONS I knew that now, my entire thought process would have to be re-evaluated, and I needed to figure out what to do next, she continued. Though the director of Majors academic program told her it would be nearly impossible to complete her studies with two babies on the way, she remained laser-focused on her studies, attending class every single day literally until the day I gave birth, as per Facebook. In May 2018, little Makenna and Makinlee were born early via C-section. One week later, Montoya Major was back in the classroom. The proud mom told Fox News that she never would have been able to weather the challenging season of life without the support of family and friends, especially her dad. Her father raised her as a widow, and always championed the importance of education as his daughter was the first in their family to attend college. Throughout this entire journey my father encouraged me the most although he was not physically there. My father and I are very close and have always been inseparable after my mother passed when I was young, Montoya Major told Fox News. Whenever I had an episode of wanting to quit school he always encouraged me that it would be worth it in the end. Nevertheless, the collegian would later reflect on that journey as the hardest year of my life balancing her studies and clinical rotations with caring for two newborns on her own.

  5. Harry Reid:

    She's never changed. She's 74 years old. She could win a beauty contest today. She is the nicest person. She has been a wonderful mother, a terrific wife to me. I wish there was a way I could express to everyone how fortunate I am.
