Happy Mother’s Day!

Who can understand what a woman has to go through to be a mother?

Labour pain is one of the worst pains in life. Mothers have to suffer through it to bring forth one of her own.

That is but only the first part of an exciting and at times heart-wrenching journey.

In bringing up a child, a mothers has to put in all of her being. She cannot detach any part of her life from fulfilling her maternal care and duties.

As a result, she can enjoy the peak of many emotional experiences. She may also has to endure the pits of many emotionally-draining exercises.

Being a mother is not an easy task.

If motherhood is a job, it’s one of the lowest paid hard work.

It’s a job that requires them to be on standby, 24/7 to fulfill unpredictable needs.

After childbirth, mothers serve ‘bosses’ who cannot express their appreciation adequately.

When the children are matured enough, they are often caught up with their studies or work. They don’t do or say enough to convey their gratitude to their mothers.

Still, mothers continue their care and help without any expectation. They do not seek any recognition or reward.

In performing their duties, mothers have to put on many hats, including taking on many challenging roles.

They have to, at the same time, be a leader, teacher, mentor, coach, counsellor, cheer leader, and friend.

A mother’s true love is unconditional. It will never falter and is forever.

In a way, I feel Mother’s Day is a misnomer. Every day should be Mother’s Day.

There’s nothing we can ever do that can express enough of our gratitude and thankfulness to them.

Mothers and grandmothers deserve all our love and appreciation.

When you go out there to pursue your dream and goal, a part of that pursuit should be devoted to help meet your mothers’ dream and goal too.

For all that your mother has done for you, you owe it to her to make every day of her life, a safe, secure and happy one. Love her, honor her, and show your gratitude and appreciation to her.

Please have a wonderful Mother’s Day celebration.
