It’s a pretty fantastic gesture to stop whatever’s going on, and thank your mom once in a while. And if you’re a husband, you can do this for your wife as well, since she’s the mother to your children. I mean, come on, let’s think about this for a second. How might they react to you, if you were to let them know how much you love them? And if you were to tell them, that you’re thankful for them being such a blessing to you, when you were growing up?
I’m also a mom, both of young kids, and kids who are already grown, living on their own. So, I know firsthand how much of a blessing it’d be to receive validation such as this! It’s an amazing compliment when your adult kids express themselves in this way. Moms can get down on ourselves sometimes, you know! We actually feel a lot of concern at times, because we wish you could’ve had different experiences.
“The natural state of MOTHERHOOD IS UNSELFISHNESS. When you become a mom, you’re no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.” Jessica Lange
Moms sacrifice themselves to be caregivers for their children, who began as tiny seeds put inside them. We have to make quite a bit of changes in our lives, sometimes. And, for those nine to ten months, we wait for our babies to get the opportunity to hold these precious little gifts in our arms. And we make a promise that we’ll protect them from harm.
“A mother’s love for her child, is like nothing else in this world. It knows no laws, no pity; it dares all things, and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.” Agatha Christie
We mean the promise that we make, too. Because he’ll hath no fury, like a mama protecting her babies! It’s a love like no other. And it’s a feeling we wouldn’t trade for anything, even if we were never to hear any of those sweet sentiments.
