Mother's Day

“A mother is not a definition; it's a feeling”

A mother is the first person a child ever knows. The pivotal role of being a mother is still the divine mission assigned to women alone. A mother plays an important role in her child’s life and in the long run for the society. As a mother strives to nurture and teach a child, she explicitly makes the world a much better place. Women are actually given an opportunity and a privilege by God to be his partner in giving life to another human being."Mothers never retire, no matter how old her children are. She is always a Mom, always willing to encourage and help her children in any way she can!"

Mothers are the most important persons of a child’s life and to appreciate her efforts and pay tribute for everything a mother does assiduously for her child.Mother's Day is celebrated every year with a lot of zeal and enthusiasm across the world. This day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in the society. It is celebrated in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May.

A mother is a friend, protector, guide, disciplinarian and much more. She is selfless and loving, who promptly sacrifices her wants and needs for her children without any second thoughts. Her love is unconditional for all her children. From the day a child is born, she works hard to make sure that her child is equipped with the knowledge, skills and abilities, to make him a competent human being. Being a mother is perhaps the hardest but the most rewarding job. Mothers have often shaped our world from the cradle by rocking, nurturing and instructing children who grow up to make life-changing and history making accomplishments. For every preacher, president, volunteer worker, employee, fashionista, technician, community worker, doctor, caregiver among others, there is a mother behind them who fostered her child to reach his/her full potential.

How are we shaping our children as we speak to them? Are you like a potter, shaping the soft clay of your children’s hearts with words with a light guiding hand at some times and with a gentle pressure at others? Or are you a sculptor, using your words like hammers, chisels, and knives because you are too busy and stressed to speak kindly and exercise patience? These are the questions that continuously stay foremost in the mind of all mothers.

“A mother understands what a child does not say.” Indeed there exist a dynamic bond between mother and children. Mothers can hear sentences in the silences of their children. Of all their many attributes…all that comes down to is the heart – a mother’s heart. It has everything to do with the tenderness and toughness, the compassion and conscientiousness of the heart. There is nothing quite comforting as having our mother’s arm wrapped around us when we are sad, lonely, or afraid.

God has given mothers the special gift of intuition because it gives her a strong sense of what is right for her children, what they are good at, how they may excel in the future, what gifts and abilities she needs to make sure are developed in their lives as God intended. Mothers are timeless teachers in the classroom of life. Women especially mothers are the most influential educators. They bequeath to us timeless wisdom, a legacy so precious and valuable. Mother shapes our world from the cradle, by rocking, nurturing and instructing children to grow up to make life changing and history- making accomplishments. For every person, there is a mother behind who fostered her child’s sensibilities to their full potential.

Mother teaches us to have confidence and belief in ourselves. Mother knows from experience how important for people to believe in themselves in order for children to be whole, strong and grow with a healthy estimation of oneself. One way of parents to breed confidence in a child is to affirm and sharpen his/her thinking. A healthy sense of self-confidence can result in a person to achieve more and celebrate more. Mother’s lessons in life gives us the space to believe in oneself as there is no limit to greatness one can attain or the great things you can accomplish.

“An ounce of mother is worth a pound of priest”, an old Spanish saying. A mother’s prayer is a priceless gift, a real treasure, an earnest heartfelt force of power. If you have a mother who prays for you, you are indeed truly blessed.


“Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.”
