Once, a small child asked God before he was sent to earth, “God, why are you sending me there alone? Who will take care of me? I don’t know anyone there. I will be scared”. God replied smilingly, “Dear child, do not be afraid. I have sent someone already there who will take good care of you, who will keep you warm in cold night and give you shade under the Sun”. The curious child asked again, “who will be that person?” God answered, looking deep into the eyes of the child, “She will be your mother.”
God could not be everywhere, and therefore, he made a mother. To guide, protect, and love us from the bottom of her heart. She dedicates her life to her child. For a woman, motherhood is the best phase of her life. A woman always dreams of nourishing a child, first in her womb and later in her arms. Someone of her own, her flesh and blood. Therefore, she put all her efforts, love, goals and everything else into her child's upbringing without expecting anything in return. Mother is a symbol of selfless love. Love never ends and cannot be replaced. She is that person who will support you, give you strength and love you when you are at your lowest, and she will always be there when others decide to leave you alone. A mother is a precious gift from God. We haven’t seen God but feel his presence in our mothers. They say, “there aren’t any hood like motherhood”, which is very accurate that only a woman can understand. Coursing through so many emotions and after taking so much pain, a woman gives birth to a child and finds all the pain worth it. A woman becomes a mother the moment she realises a tiny life is budding in her womb and starts a never-ending journey of motherhood. From birth to adolescence, a child observes his mother assuming different roles to give the best life to him. It doesn’t matter to her if she is ill; she will still stand up and fulfil her child's needs. One wonders where does she get so much strength? Her strength resides in the smile of her child. She would do anything and go to any extent to keep her child happy.
A friend, philosopher, and guide all rolled into one. We should feel blessed that we have mothers to take care of us. A soul anchor we always come back to when we need a break from these worldly affairs. And she receives us with open arms. She is our home, a place where we forget all our miseries. A child must always remember the sacrifice made by his mother in bringing him up. He may not be able to repay that, but he must make efforts to keep his mom happy; her happiness lies in her child alone. You don’t need to buy her gift as she already considers you the most significant contribution from God. A phone call, a surprise visit, and you call her mom are the things she lives for. Never take your mother for granted, she is the only person who will never leave your side and always be there for you.
