Mother – An Abode of Love

Neeraj Dubey

Women are oftentimes considered to be a valuable part of the society due to the important roles they play and the duties they perform.Women who were the most dormant segment of India population have now become active participants in all walks of life. Till now, they were only unit of the family organization. Now, women are becoming not only a significant unit of the society but also influencing the course of social change in society.Women are an important element of our Society. The modern society has started recognizing the individual identity of women. Women can help the society in various ways. They can engage in social activities and work for the betterment of the society.The most important aspect of a woman’s role is that of the mother. The role has also undergone change because of the exigencies of modern times. In modern times, the educated mother’s role is changing as the demands of the new situations involve the inculcation of new values among children. As a mother, a woman plays the most significant role in child’s development process. The mother links the new generation with the old values and norms and thereby provides the stability and the continuity to the social structure. Traditionally, a woman as a mother occupies a place of great honour and prestige in our society. Of the two parents, the mother’s role is considered more significant. For a child, his mother remains the most important person in the family.The pivotal role of being a mother is still the divine mission assigned to women alone.
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. Mothers have often shaped 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.Mothers remain some of our most powerful teachers in the hands-on laboratory of everyday living. 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 armwrapped around us when we are sad, lonely, or afraid.
Mothers teach us to believe in God:-Mothers teach us the value of God’s word through their lives, personal prayer life and dependence on God’s strength and wisdom. Nothing is as attractive in a woman as the fear of the Lord. Knowing God, honouring God and worshipping God are really the most praiseworthy endeavours a person can ever undertake. Mothers are one of the first indications of the sovereignty of God in our lives.
Mothers teach us to have confidence and belief in ourselves: – Mothers knew 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 one as there is no limit to greatness one can attain or the great things you can accomplish.
Today I honour her with more than flowers by sharing her wisdom.A) Personal power is more important than positional power. B) Giving to others will always make you happier than receiving. C) The spiritual is more important than the temporal. D) The heart is greater than things. E)Connecting with other people is more valuable than living in isolation. F) You are always more valuable than me. G) What goes into your mind is more important than what goes into your body. H) How you live is more important than where you live.Mothers can set the tone for the atmosphere in the home. Is the home negative and critical or loving and forgiving? Mothers teach by their attitude, whether it is positive or negative. They teach by how they speak to their children and husband and by how they treat others. Mothers also have an important role in teaching their children values like responsibility, respect, honesty, and diligence.
Along with tending to all the practical duties of caring for the home, it is important that a mother also spend time with her children: reading, singing, etc., and fostering open communication by taking the time to really listen to and talk to her children.It is the right of your mother that you should appreciate that she carried you [in her womb] the way nobody carries anybody, she fed you the fruits of her heart which nobody feeds anybody. She protected you [during pregnancy] with her ears, eyes, hands, legs, hair, limbs, [in short] with her whole being, gladly, cheerfully, and carefully; suffering patiently all the worries, pains, difficulties, and sorrows.However it is indisputable that the most important achievement of a mother is the raising of sensible, virtuous children who will then move on to build other strong blocks for society. It has been said that it is easy to bear children but it is difficult to raise them well. In that lies the challenge for all mothers.”I believe it is by divine design that the role of motherhood emphasizes the nurturing and teaching of the next generation. The author likes to conclude this article by this beautiful quotation, “A Mother’s love is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, it never fails or falters, even though the heart is breaking.” “Always love your Mother – Because U will never get another.”
