Concluding the month of May – the month for mommies around the world, let me interest you with a heart-warming article from a fascinating woman who gave up her medical career in exchange for a simple yet a life full of love and never-ending challenges of being a mother, 24 by 7.
RAISING KIDS IS NO CHILDS’ PLAY
“Mom,” “Maa,” “Amma,” “Mother” and so on…
The first word a child speaks all over the world. Just by uttering the word “mom,” I go down memory lane laced with emotions, experiences and of course the life when I was a child- the days I spent with my own mother.
Being blessed with two lovely children, a boy and a girl, I feel extremely thankful to “God” and to them for giving me the honor to be their mother.
As I asked a friend what being a mother means to her,
she answered me right away,
“Being a mom to
me means that now I will always be a mom first and a wife second.”
It took me a while to realize what she said. It was a cliché, so I didn’t think much about it. Then it hit me… “What is my greatest priority over everything around me?” What she said was indeed true.
Children. They are our greatest priority. For a mom like me, I think I won’t be able to sleep soundly at night if I missed out doing something for my children. No matter how busy I am, I will stop to attend to their needs. And even in the middle of my slumber, I will wake up right away, and go to their bed once they call out my name.
I am doing this out of love.
And wife second.
I’m sure their dad will understand.
Yesterday, we’ve had the opportunity to share very inspiring thoughts imparted by some lovely mothers from different walks of life. We were empowered and amazed by their heartfelt words; and we promised to give you more…
Let us listen once again from these God-sent angels whom we call “MOTHER…”

Being a mother is the hardest and most rewarding duty you can ever accomplish as a woman. The love for your child is unconditional, pure and selfless. You don’t think about yourself anymore, it’s all about your children. You sacrifice things for your children. Being a mother does not stop when your kids are adults. From their very first step, their first prom, and the time that they too will become a parent…you’re there with a big smile and excitement. You are their biggest cheerleader. I may be the silliest and most exaggerated at times. I get teary eyed when I’m proud, I will not sleep or rest till all my kids are home, and I worry all the time.
There were no instructions on ‘being a mother’, you learn throughout the way, you learn it from each other. For every boo-boos, cries, giggles and disappointments… mom will always be there.
