A “mother,” being one of those myself, what a multi tasking person we need to be. We wear many hats and specialize in many areas within a child’s lifetime.
The reality is, the moment a child is born, the mother is also born. Mom is one of the first words a child says. To a child’s ear, “mother” is magic in any language.
When you are a mother, you are never really alone in thought. A mother needs to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
Every day a mother is challenged with strengthening her children by overcoming obstacles with understanding patience, encouraging morals and integrity. We also try to teach our children to choose anything that doesn’t look like an unwise choice. We want our children to learn from life’s greatest lessons.
We are the mother of a child who reaches into their backpack and pulls out a crumpled drawing they colored for us, or the wonderful dandelions we receive from them as flowers. Our children are also good at planting sticky kisses on our face and placing little finger-prints on our glasses.
If we could, we would build our children a dream home, or change the past, present, or predict the future, but, we can’t.
Every mother is like Moses. She does not enter the promised land. She prepares a world she will not see.
A mother remains the center of attention and respect for a child, for a long time. Only to touch her skirt or sleeve makes a troubled child feel better.
Even when she is no more, her image is in the child’s heart. She manages to make the child smile. Even in the lowest period of their lives, the thought of a mother sends a message encouraging the child to go on. Every teardrop is crystallized by the thought of a mother that was close to the child.
Mothers want their children to reach out to others and, at the same time, live their lives in a meaningful way.
One of the greatest messages we can leave in the mind of child that was close to their mother, are these words, “I have one last thing I want to teach you before I leave this earth. There is nothing that can separate a child from their mother; not time, not space, not even death. The internal side of us proves this over and over again, that mothers do not die, because they live in the hearts of their children.”
