A Mother

We all know having children means enduring headaches and heartaches but a mother never gives up, she keeps going nurturing and caring. There is a Spanish proverb that says “an ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy”. There are various meanings of a mother in the dictionary from a woman who gives birth to something that helps in the production of vinegar. But who exactly is a mother?

A mother's work is on going until the day she dies. A mother kneels to pray for her child when a child's burden is too much for the child to bear, she stays a wake when any of her children is cannot fall a sleep. A mother's inspiration is amazing. A famous author and mother by the name Tenneva Jordan said “a mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie”, she gives with joy.

George Washington said “My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw, All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her”.

Being a mother means being self-less, it means having joy in giving and never counting the cost. A mother will feel and share a child’s pain, being a mother is beautiful and it is the kind of beauty that will never fade with passing years. A mother’s love is true love because she loves unconditionally. To a new born, a mother is God to a grown up a mother is the oil that keeps the engine running.

A mother is one who knows best, gives the best advice and can never be replaced. My mother makes the home that I go to, without her in it, it feels empty. A mother worries about her children, husband and work and yet keeps on being strong. This truly is the strength of a woman.

Motherhood is a gift, it’s not easy and it requires patience, dedication and self sacrifice cherish it as much as you can. Being a mother is not about getting pregnant or giving birth, it’s about giving your all to that little one until they are all grown up without expecting anything in return.

To some if not most, a mother is a matriarch. Abraham Lincoln said”All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe it to my angel mother”, and the same I say of my mother.

To my mother who gives me the best advice, loves me unconditionally, is my role model, the pillar of our family and a true woman of strength. If I had to make a pick I would select you over and over. To my mother-in law who knows no discrimination, loves dearly and a great mentor.

Celebrate your mother's love everyday, let everyday be mother's day.

Great article. Timely since mother's day is only 5 weeks or so out. Plus, motherhood is one of the hardest jobs on the planet that is one of the most over looked. Here's to our mothers!
