“While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about”-Angela Schwindt.
I feel that our children are the ones who teach us much more than we teach them. They are no less than a psychologist as they can read our mind, ease our pain and at the end of the day, make us feel better about ourselves and world at large. This Mothers Day, lets not just celebrate mothers but also the little ones who bring that motherhood out of us.
My daughter will turn 5 this May. It just seems like yesterday when I was at the hospital for my delivery. I was partly conscious because somewhere in between all that numbness of my senses and commotion of the operation theatre, I heard the best music to my ears- Its a girl with my daughters cry as the background score.
As every other mother, I love my child but at the same time I owe a lot to her. She made me realize that I am much stronger than I thought I was. Earlier, I was scared of sleeping in the dark but after her birth, I got used to sleeping with lights off to put her to sleep. She has taught me to be selfless and to love unconditionally. When she throws her arms around me, I feel wanted and loved in a manner that is so pure and effortless.
She has taught me how to remain positive. I look at her face and feel energized even after a long tiring day. She helped me discover myself and develop new skills such as story telling, cooking (without getting burnt!), horse riding to name a few.
The faith she has in me makes me feel invincible and nothing less than a wonder woman. Life was great before her as well but after she arrival, it has been all things amazing.
We always talk about how selfless we mothers are but we forget to praise the ones who bring out the best of motherhood in us. So this mother’s days I am going to bring a cake and thank my little one for making me a MOM.
