Clarity and focus doesn’t always come from God or inspirational quotes. Usually, it takes your mother to slap the reality back into you.
There would not be you if it were not for her. The sacrifices she makes for her offspring can never be overlooked upon. The real God, with undying love, who every single one born into our planet witnesses. The person who stays in your heart forever and more. No matter what.
From our first days of being alive, she nurtures us, loves us, and cherishes every single moment with us(be good or bad; even the worst). She teaches us to live, care, love, and respect. She adorns us with all the affection she could offer in a lifetime. Every second with us is like a new life for her. The joy she sees in our eyes reciprocates twice within her. Our life is for her. Always.
Now some of my readers might think I’m being a feminist by just referring to all mothers out there. Well to those pity souls, learn to breathe more often. But this time, realize that it was your mother’s womb that created the atmosphere to do so in the first place.
You would not be the person you are today if it were not for the things she taught you. You would not be talking as of now if it were not for the times she spoke to you. For every person in this world, the existence of a mother is natural, although caring for her likewise is optional. Now when I say it’s optional, I do not mean it is so. Every person is allowed to his/her opinions and views on how to love their mother. But honestly is it possible for anyone to say out loud that there has not been a single day in your life that you weren’t grateful to that one person who you could always run to crying and would not deny to hear you out no matter what you did? Well if anyone were to say no, then they are a hypocrite.
There comes a day in everyone’s lives when they need the love of their mother to get past a barrier. This barrier can be anything. From a tiny little doubt in your childish head to a life or death situation. No matter how simple or complex it may be, deep down each of us knows that one person might be able to lend their ear to us. The secret shared is not bound by a lawyer-client privilege or anything of that sort, but something that is more confidential and pure; a mother’s love for her child. It is what I like to call as the orb of maternal love.
I have had personal experiences so I say this. Whatever you may face down the road, whoever you think you can trust, whichever virtue you may adopt, always remember your mother’s love stays loyal to you. There will not be always time in your life to say thank you for favours but make sure to say that at least once in your lifetime to your creator.
Mother. I love you and I thank you for everything you have always done for me. I know you may not see this today or in the days to follow, but I want you to know that behind all the taunts and teasing I pull out on you, I am your biggest fan. I am no one without your support and love. You are my guiding light. You are my pillar.
Sometimes when life darkened up around me, I know you were there to hold my hand and walk through it all.
I am who I am because of you. I am proud to be your child.
