Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.
A mother is amazingly selfless and she dedicates her life to her children and creates numerous ways to reassure them that they mean so much to her. Yet her labour sometimes seems to go unnoticed.
A mother endures ALL! At birth, she learns to balance out the pain of labour with the joy of beholding a new-born.. And from that moment on-ward, she carries the worries of her child, even when the child feels they’re grown up, a mother masks her fears knowing how cruel the world can be yet prepares her child for the challenges of life. It’s very hard to watch her child struggle through the lessons of life. Yet, she labours on for her child. And her only joy is the success of that child. A Mother is a person with a mission from above, and imparts her children with the image of God’s love
A good mother loves fiercely but ultimately brings up her children to thrive without her – Erin Kelly.
No matter what situation you find yourself… Your Mother is ALWAYS with you!
She is the whisper of the leaves heard as you walk down the street. She is the flowers you pick. She is the cool hand on your brows when you are not feeling good. She is the air that you breathe-in on a cold winter morning. She is the water sound that lulls you to sleep and the colours of a rainbow. Your Mother lives in your laughter and is crystallised in every teardrop.
A mother shows every emotion … … … joy, sadness, fear, excitement, jealousy, love, hate, anger, helplessness, sorrow, happiness… and all the while, hoping and praying you will only know the good feelings in life. She is your first home, and the map you follow with every step you take. She is your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you. Not time, not space… nor DEATH!
A mother’s arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them – Victor Hugo
Words cannot describe how much I appreciate you. For loving me unconditionally, for your intelligence, sense of humour, strength, empathy, protection, faith and immeasurable patience.
For the discipline, for being there during the hard times that drew us closer, for being my first love and best friend; for sticking around even when I became stubborn and blatantly ignored your instructions. For being my rock during tough life decisions, and new chapters.
For being a shoulder to lean on and for carrying me through when it felt like it was virtually impossible to go on. For being my confidant. For being the best teacher anyone can ever ask for, for the little things, for being able to find a balance between being a friend and a MOTHER…Thank You!!!
I hope you feel so loved and celebrated this Mother’s Day. And no matter what situation you find yourself in, please understand that you are doing more than enough, and you are loved and well appreciated…
…And to those that their mothers aren’t with us anymore, be rest assured that wherever she is, she’s always watching over you, no matter what you go through, she’s right there with you.
The presence of a mother never leaves her children no matter how far apart they are!
