“Successful Mother’s are not the ones that have never struggled, they are the ones that never give up despite the struggles.”
~ Sharon Jaynes
A mother’s voice is the first thing that we hear; and it is her worn out yet joyful face that we see when we make our way into this world. They come in all ages, colors, sizes and shapes. They are the source of our existence and for this reason alone, they deserve all the respect and honor that we can shower them with.
No matter what advances we make and how the world evolves, there is one thing that will never change and that is a mother’s unparalleled, unconditional and incomparable love. Mothers have an abundance of hope for us in their hearts. This is irrespective of whether they are an active part of our lives or not; they always have a vision for us. They truly make us whole. They are our protectors, a beacon of light guiding us in every situation.
Regardless of our faults and shortcomings, they will always be our greatest cheerleaders and source of inspiration and motivation. They don’t have an instruction manual guiding them how to raise us, yet they do their best. Being a mother could so easily be regarded as one of the most unappreciated job in the context of our society. In today’s society, mothers are losing the reverence and respect they once received. This coupled with this job’s inherent latent nature, creates an environment where mothers usually don’t get the appreciation that they so richly deserve.
The importance of mothers is unquestionable and that is a no-brainer. They do everything such as changing our filthy diapers, enduring our tantrums and fits of rage, packing our lunch boxes and dropping us off to schools. According to a number of studies, maternal deprivation can have a detrimental effect on the bonding process between a mother and her child, which in turn has the effect of impairing a child’s psychological, social and emotional development.
Mothers not only guide us by instilling values, responsibilities and purpose in our life, they also cultivate a feeling of well-being and security. The relational attachment that a young one forges with their mother becomes the corner stone of their personality. Mothers guide us by offering counsel, advice, emotional and psychological support. They are always at your side no matter what and make sacrifices no one else will even consider making. The boundaries and limitations they set for us keep us out of trouble and make us better individuals, even though we may not agree with their decisions.
On this Mothers’ Day thank her for things like staying up late at night and waking up early just to keep us in the best possible shape, for praying to God that we get through whatever pain and misery we are experiencing and for assisting us in completing school assignments. Also apologize to her for all the troubles that you put her through or any selfish or snarky comment that you passed. Believe me she will forgive you in a heartbeat.
Spending time with our mother and honoring her is our foremost duty as she is the real and undisputed queen of our hearts.
