My Wishlist for Mom

Updated on February 22, 2013

Moms, What a remarkable gift!

Every moms in the world are truly what a remarkable gift from God. Nothing can compare to the multitude of love that they have for their children. They're always ready to risks everything even their own life just for the sake of their loved-ones. Its amazing how they handle stress in every challenges of life at the same time the joy of seeing their child raised up to be as well-rounded individuals. Just remember the touch of comfort, pieces of advices, endless understanding, sacrifice and unconditional love that made a great impact in our lives. Yes! They are truly like a living hero in each of their children's heart. No enough words can ever tell how the love of a mother can change the world...

All I can say is "Thank You, Mama" from the bottom of my heart!

This is for all the mothers who have sat up all night with sick toddlers in their arms, wiping up barf laced with Oscar Mayer wieners and cherry Kool-Aid saying, "It's OK honey, Mommy's here." when they keep crying and won't stop.

This is for all the mothers who show up at work with spit-up in their hair and milk stains on their blouses and diapers in their purse.

For all the mothers who run carpools and make cookies and sew Halloween costumes. And all the mothers who DON'T.

This is for the mothers who gave birth to babies they'll never see. And the mothers who took those babies and gave them homes.

This is for all the mothers who froze their buns off on metal bleachers at football or soccer games Friday night instead of watching from cars,so that when their kids asked, "Did you see me?" they could say, "Of course, I wouldn't have missed it for the World," and mean it.

This is for all the mothers who yell at their kids in the grocery store and swat them in despair when they stomp their feet like a tired 2-year old who wants ice cream before dinner.

This is for all the mothers who sat down with their children and explained all about making babies. And for all the mothers who wanted to but just couldn't. For all the mothers who read "Goodnight, Moon" twice a night for a year, and then read it again. "Just one more time."

This is for all the mothers who taught their children to tie their shoelaces before they started school. And for all the mothers who opted for Velcro instead. This is for all the mothers who teach their sons to cook and their daughters to sink a jump shot.

This is for all mothers whose heads turn automatically when a little voice calls " Mom ?" in a crowd, even though they know their own off spring are at home.

This is for all the mothers who sent their kids to school with stomach aches, assuring them they'd be just FINE once they got there, only to get calls from the school nurse an hour later asking them to please pick them up right away.

This is for mothers whose children have gone astray, who can't find the words to reach them.

For all the mothers who bite their lips sometimes until they bleed--when their 14 year olds dye their hair green.

What makes a good Mother anyway? Is it patience? Compassion? Broad hips? The ability to nurse a baby, cook dinner, and sew a button on a shirt, all at the same time?

Or is it heart? Is it the ache you feel when you watch your son or daughter disappear down the street, walking to school alone for the very first time?

The jolt that takes you from sleep to dread, from bed to crib 2 A.M. to put your hand on the back of a sleeping baby?

The need to flee from wherever you are and hug your child when you hear news of a fire, a car accident, a child dying? For all the mothers of the victims of all these school shootings, and the mothers of those who did the shooting. For the mothers of the Survivors, and the mothers who sat in front of their TVs in horror, hugging their child who just came home from school safely.

This is for mothers who put pinwheels and teddy bears on their children's graves.

This is for young mothers stumbling through diaper changes and sleep deprivation. And mature mothers learning to let go.

For working mothers and stay-at-home mothers. Single mothers and married Mothers. Mothers with money, mothers without.

This is for you all. So hang in there. "Home is what catches you when you fall - and we all fall..."

How Moms Can Maintain Strong Self-Image

It seems that in a day of a mom's life everything is a fast-pace especially living in these times when there's a lot of things going on with taking care of the kids, send them to school, managing the house, see to it that the budget will meet at the end of the month, huge amount of bills and the list goes on... My mother knows exactly what I'm talking about. That's why I don't wonder why they sometimes lose control and break down. But don't let these problems "lose yourself" and eventually your own self-image. Here's some few suggestions on how to maintain and build up your confidence.

  • Don't be an overly-possessive mother. In doing so, you give your power away to your children.
  • Listen and respond to your own needs. This is not being selfish but honest and empowering.
  • Always trying to please your children will backfire. They will not respect you and you will not respect yourself.
  • If your children make mistakes it is not a reflection on you. Remember you are ok as long as you allow children to become self-directed through learning from their own experiences.
  • Create a life for yourself apart from your children. Involve family, friends and significant others to support you in your self-rewarding activities.
  • Eradicate the words "selfish" and "guilty" from your vocabulary. They are words that diminish your worth and keep you from developing confidence.
  • Recognize the harsh reality that your children don't always need you. It's amazing what they can do for themselves.
  • Let go of the illusion of being the perfect mother. Parenting is an art. Having to be perfect puts an unreasonable burden on you.

Honolulu is the capital of as well as the most populous community of the State of Hawaii, United States. It is located at the Southeast Asian coast of Oahu. At the same time, it is largest city in the world -- at least it has the longest borders. According to the state constitution any island (or islet) not named as belonging to a county belongs to Honolulu. This makes all islands within the Hawaiian Archipelago, that stretch to Midway Island (1,500 miles northwest of Hawaii) part of Honolulu. Honolulu is about 1,500 miles long or more distance than halfway across the 48 contiguous states.
