A Woman that Kisses our Pain Away

“To understand your parents' love you must raise children yourself.”
Chinese Proverb

Parents understand children even before they utter a word. They are the only beings on earth that will accept you as you are. There is no pretense in their love.

While both parents are assinged different duties by nature, it is a mother who cuddles us and spreads her wings of love around us. We don’t realize our mother’s hardships and sleepless nights during the nine months she carried us. We don’t realize how she left her breakfast, lunch and dinner cold to attend to our hunger. We don’t realize how many times she woke up in the middle of the night to watch us go back to sleep peacefully and then get ready for the tough challenges of the next day.
Every day should be Mother’s Day. A woman should be thanked for the different roles she plays for the betterment of mankind, the many facets she has. A mother should be appreciated for the daily Herculean tasks she completes that otherwise look so easy to men and the rest of the family. A mother should be thanked and appreciated daily not just on one day dubbed Mother’s Day. Our lives are in order because of this woman, this mother, this wife,this sister, this partner.

If you want to give something special to your mother or the mother of your kids, show some gratitude and appreciation for the daily efforts she puts into everything that brings out the best in everyone and everything. That one thought alone will mean a lot to her; to know that you appreciate her for all the untold miseries, hardships and challenges she went through day in and out just to bring a smile on your face….

Remember to forgive her if she didn't turn out to be the best; wasn't there when you needed her, wanted her, because in the many roles a mother plays, constant pressure(s) may impede and destroy her priorities for which she must not be blamed. She has after all, given birth to you, a pain that she underwent for restless hours.

Mom I love you and acknowledge your every effort...Thank you for being in my life. Happy Mother’s day to you!!!
