As a special post for this day, I'm going to quote one of my articles for Gala magazine’s Mother’s Day issue, which indicates a fact that every kid knows:
“Being a mother is a 365-day job, and it is no easy feat. Mothers know that days off are out of the question when it comes to taking care of their loved ones. However, no matter how many synonyms of “altruism” their vocabularies may have, mothers do expect to receive some kind of compensation: love and respect.”
I guess there’s no other way than to go cheeseballs on this post, so I better get it over and done with. I love mama so, so much, but I know my love cannot ever surpass the one she has for us, her family. She supports me in every endeavor I take; she never dictates what I should do, but she’s always there to offer advice, lighting a spark whenever the life path I’m treading on becomes too dark. She heals me when I get wounded—emotionally, spiritually, and physically. She’s a friend, an occasional diary, and a daily superheroine who dispenses an everyday vibe of hope and cheerfulness for us. There’s an endless list of all things she can do for her family’s sake, and all I can do to show my gratitude is to make her feel like every day is Mother’s Day.
Because that’s how it should be! Make her feel like she’s a queen today, and tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow, and the day after the day after tomorrow, and the days after that. Sheer love, support, respect, and care are the only things we can give as “salary” for doing to most difficult but best job in the existence of being a woman. Being a mother, indeed, is a woman’s highest calling. Happy mother’s day to all mothers out there! :)
