Happy Mother's Day
Just a hug, just a smile
Just a ring across the miles
Unconditional gift of love, care
The warmth of compassion and ability to share
That's all what a mother needs...
Being a mother has taught me what nothing else in the world can... unconditional love. The day I held my son in my arms, tears rolled down my cheeks and i thought to myself,"how can anyone be so innocent, so sweet." It was love at first sight. The nights I spent feeding him showed me that even when I didn't receive a smile in return or even if he couldn't recognize me, how unselfish and giving love can be. Nothing can match the feeling of seeing your own extension moving freely in this world.
Motherhood is a celebration of life,love and all the byproducts that come with it,a little scolding, sometimes rejection but at the end a feeling of completeness.As they say, since God cannot be everywhere, He made mother. Mothers are special. We are strong enough to go through all the pain in the world to endure childbirth and still come out with a feeling of satisfaction and heart full of happiness. We have the courage to carry the weight of entire household on our frail shoulders and do so with a smile on our face. We have the will power to go on even when everyone else loses hope and serve the family in health and in sickness. We have the patience to listen to our children's anxieties and give them the right advice even when it means 'I don't
care' attitude from them. We have the power to love our children in times of happiness, grief, hurt, anger, frustration, success and failure.
Most of all, a mother is a gift from God and all those who have her are the most fortunate and the truly blessed. Ask them who are living their life without the love and support of their mothers and I am not talking about only orphans here.
To all my friends all around the world who are mothers and also those who are about to embrace this special gift of life, Happy Mother's Day. You are the one making a big difference in this material world with the inherent qualities of humanity and compassion.
