True blessing or magic,
Sprinkle of Love and care,
Protection as in warmth,
Such is mothers love;
So pure and devout!
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. Mother, Mom, Maa, Amma, Maasa- so many names but the same soul evokes similar connotations of love and warmth. From the time we enter this world till the time we are carried off by death, we come across many relationships in our lives. Some are just for a while, some deceive us, some leave us when we need them the most and some are with us because of the self-seeking attributes. But the one being that surpasses the care, affection and love of everybody is the ‘Mother’.
Mothers have an ever-lasting impact in our lives and it goes beyond just keeping us in their womb for nine months. Those years when we were a toddler trying to walk, our mom was there to encourage us to make progress. When the tides of life seem over-whelming, our mom is always willing to get wet with us. After a tough and a horrible day, our mother is the best person to talk to. She is the one who very well knows how to cheer us up and stay positive after an awful day. She is the most honest person in our lives. She is direct and tells us the truth. There may be times when we have argued on little things. All it takes is ‘ I am sorry’ and everything becomes normal. She never keeps grudges.
Mother is the most lovable and adorable person. No love can exceed or even match the love of a mother for her child, no less than God. She is always the first person we think of in happy times and in not so happy times. She has been blessed with the power to nurture a complete life in her womb with intense love and care. She is the best trainer and guide of every child. She teaches us on how to take those first steps of our lives, how to speak, write and all the behaviour lessons which help us to become better adults. Mother’s love shapes cultures and individuals.
In words of Agatha Christie-
” A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.”
We always thank our parents for all the good they do. But, the truth is- we can never thank them enough. Thankyou is a very small word. Mother’s love is endless, silent, understanding, immaculate, unselfish and enduring.
Our mother is the creator of our existence, she is the one who has enabled us to feel what exactly life is. She made us alive and has produced virtues within us. Someone has beautifully articulated- ‘ Behind every successful man, there is a woman.’ And, I consider this honestly, this woman can be none other than the ‘Mother’.
Every mother should be given due respect and must be admired for all the things she does and sacrifices she makes for her children. Now, it’s our time to discharge our duties towards her . We are obliged towards her for taking so much pain and labour to bring us into this beautiful world.
Mother is the most precious person in everyone’s life about whom nothing much can be described in words. She is a God’s gift to each and everyone of us. Let us all make a promise, to respect our parents and elders when we grow up as adults and pay a tribute to them by being great human beings.
Anything that sustains and nurtures our life is divine. She is Mother! Let us start this new year with thanking our mothers for being there for us. Let them know how supreme they are for us. Let them know we love them with all our heart. Love you, maa!
