Mothers are an integral part of every family. On Mother's Day let's celebrate every mother because a mother gives life.
Be it a little chicken taking care of her eggs, a lioness licking clean her cubs or a woman cuddling her bundle of joy, all mothers love their children the same. Even before a woman brings a child into the world she forms a bond with the tiny life inside her. A mother can allow herself getting hurt but will protect her children in every way. So here's celebrating every mother, the one special woman, who gave you the gift of life and did everything in her power to make you feel the best person in the world.
Every year, the second Sunday of May is a time that mothers can call their own. Make it a time to also remember your journey as a mother. Mother's Day can be a great time to pause and appreciate yourself for all those things that make you a great mom. It is time to give yourself a treat.
A Mother is born
The most miraculous and wonderful part of motherhood is giving birth. It may sound and feel difficult but a mother is naturally prepared to give birth. This short but overwhelming part in the phase of motherhood makes every mother feel special. After keeping the baby for months inside her, she welcomes it into the world. With tears of pain and the joy of childbirth, she is ready to see her little one.
Mothers who adopt
A child arrives and a mother is born. While natural birth is a special time for mothers, even adopting a child has the power to give rise to the maternal instincts in a woman. Most of us have listened to the story of Lord Krishna who was born to Devki and raised by Yashoda. This is a classic case of adoption and how mothers love their children irrespective of whether they are born naturally or adopted. In today's modern times the Indian actress and supermodel, former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen is a shining example of welcoming motherhood with adoption. The world-famous actress Angelina Jolie too is known far and wide for adopting children. Brangelina are now happily raising a family with both naturally-born and adopted children.
Mother, a shower of love
Some mothers may be in a constant dilemma if they are giving their best to their child. They might end up comparing themselves with other mothers and feel dejected. But it is good to remember that all mothers do their level best for their children. There is no point agonising over how you bring up a child. Comparison can be fatal. Be genuine and enjoy doing what you do. Do not set expectations for yourself according to what others say and do. Take help from a counsellor if you feel the situation is going out of control. Remember, the most important a child needs is love. Show it, express it and be there when your child needs you.
Love being a Mom
Being a mother is a challenging role for every woman. All the sleepless nights, busy days and efforts to look after a growing child can make one dizzy. As children grow, schooling and extra curricular activities take up most of your time. They take up all your attention. Your entire lifestyle takes a 360 degrees flip. Yet a mother loves being a mother.
Mothers around the world experience a dramatic change in their lives and attitudes once a child enters their lives. But still sport a smile. So here's celebrating all those moms and wishing them a very Happy Mother's Day.
