Mothers of the World
We all are given life by our brave mothers that endure the pains and discomforts of child birth to give us life in this world. Yet most Mothers don't often talk about the painful side of this experience but instead focus on this being one of the most special days of their lives. Many of us were blessed to have Mothers that loved us from the day we were born and will continue to love us until the day we die and beyond. There is nothing stronger than a Mother's love that shows in the special bond that Mother and child have with one another. Unfortunately not all are blessed with loving Mothers for one reason or another. Many of us have others that have stepped in and filled the role of Mothers for us. We may have been adopted, or perhaps our grandmother took the role of mother or an aunt perhaps. There is many different types of mothers from birth mothers to step mothers and everything in between. The important thing is that we have had someone in our lives that has loved us like a Mother would. One of my riches in life is that I was blessed with a Mother who loves and cares for me. There is so many children in the world that have never known the love of their mother or anyone else as they are the poor orphans of the world.
Patch Work Quilt of Mothers
We all come from different cultures, races, religious and financial brackets. These are a few things that make us all different. In a Mother's eyes we are loved unconditionally by them they do not care about our size, color, or what our financial bracket is. A Mother's love does not come with terms or conditions or contracts that we must sign but it is just pure Motherly love that is given freely to their children. It doesn't matter where we go in the world we will see Mother's of the world showing their love for their children made up from a "Patchwork Quilt of Mothers" from many cultures. All the Mother's of the world having one main link in common - the love of their children. This shows us that a Mother's love comes in many shades all important in making the "Quilt of Mothers of the World".
We all have had those bad days in our lives when we needed a good hug and some comfort from our dear Mothers. These things varied from a scrapped knee to our first heart break as a teenager. Our Mothers were always there to pick up the pieces and help but them back together; helping to ease the pain with their love for us. Our Mothers have always been there to be supportive of us and our endeavors. My Mother has been like my own personal cheer leader; cheering me on in whatever I was attempting to do in life. She has always made me feel that I could do anything if I just set my mind to it. When we are feeling unsure of ourselves we often look to our Mothers to give us that extra boost of confidence that we may be lacking in ourselves. My Mother has always been a great Mentor in my life even when we may differ in opinions I still respect hers.
Mother and Daughter Relationship
Like many girls I was a Daddy's girl growing up; my Mother was usually the parent who issued the punishment when my brother's and I misbehaved. Coming from a child's perspective I would see my Mother as not as nice as my Dad because she was the main disciplinarian. But now as an adult I look back and see how these times must have been hard for my Mother in mostly being the parent who played the "Bad Cop" role when it came to handing out the discipline in our house. I realize now that it must have been hard to be the one who had to say "No" most of the time. I did not always take "No" very well thus I would act out giving my Mother some stressful times as a child. But it was because of my Mother's love and discipline that I turned out to be a decent adult and not a Serial Killer! I give much of the credit of my out come to the support my Mother has shown me through out my life. Even though I am an adult I still enjoy the love and support from my Mother. If I am feeling stressed or upset about something my Mother is one of a few people in my life that I feel I can trust to speak about what may be concerning me. My Mother is one person who I trust knowing that she will only do or say things that will help me in life not harm me. It is hard to find people in this day and age that I feel I can truly trust so I feel truly blessed that I have this with my Mother. Mother's naturally do protect their off spring from harm of any kind. Mothers of many species will even put their own lives at risk in order to protect their young. That natural instinct brings Mothers of all kinds together with the same bond or link of caring for and protecting their young from harm. There is wonderful Mothers that come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, colors, and species that we as the off spring are blessed to have.
Today "Mothers Day" is dedicated to all of our Mothers; this would be a perfect day to visit our mothers or connect with them either by phone, email etc. We should let them know that they are special and that we love them when ever we can. Our Mothers are one person we should stay connected to in our lifes because without them we would be none. I want to thank all the Mothers of the World for their love and support for the big and small children of the World. Wishing all Mothers a Happy Mothers Day!
Dedicated to my Dear Mother
