Happy Mothers’ day to all you mums out there. I often joke and say if man where to get pregnant and have kids the human race would be extinct by now. I say it jokingly but I think it is true what do you think?
When you think about it every human being who walks this planet was carried in that special place called a womb by a woman. Every president, every prominent person was given the opportunity to life by a woman who lovingly carried him/her in their womb for 9 months.
One word comes to my mind when I think of mothers which is tenacity.
I say mothers are tenacious
This word means resolute, persistence, stubborn, determined wow these are powerful words you will see why in a minute hang on there.
If you have been pregnant I am sure you will quickly understand why.
A pregnant woman is resolute and prepared to go through the morning sickness which can last for a couple of months and for some through the period of the pregnancy as well as the hormonal changes. I really don’t know why they call it morning sickness because it is not in the morning only it is 24 hours 7 days a week.
Let’s move to labour, this in my own experience is the most traumatising part. I remember when I was in labour with my first kid I got to a stage where I thought I couldn’t take the pain anymore. I felt like I didn’t have any more strength to push this baby out. But when they told me that the baby was getting tired, strength came from somewhere and I pushed the baby out. That was the protective instinct in me which was concerned about the baby’s well-being. When I looked at the baby I was so overwhelmed with love and joy but had not forgotten the pain. I vowed never to do it again, but guess what I did have another baby. This is called persistency what do you call this?
If we didn’t have mothers the human race would be extinct for sure what do you think?
I would like to say happy mothers day to all you ladies who have given your life and homes to be mothers to the motherless.
Now this is a personal and emotional part of my life; I want to pay tribute to my mum who has gone to be with the Lord. I miss you mum, I wish you were here to see the women that my sisters and I have become and see the family God has blessed us with. You might be gone, but you left a legacy. Everytime someone introduces my siblings and I when we are back at home we are introduced as your daughters.
Thanking God for my other mum who happens to be my mum’s sister. She is always been there for us since birth and loves my sisters and I like her own. I remember when I went home 3 years ago she ran and wrapped me in her arms and I cried tears of joy. My eyes well up as I think of this moment because your love for us is amazing and unconditional.
I must admit the fact that my mum is gone does make me emotional on mother’s day. However I manage to lift myself up by counting my blessings.
As I write this I know there are many people who are in the same boat as me. I say your mum might be gone but her legacy lives through you.
Happy mother’s day to You All,
Love & blessings,
