MOTHER - A Glorious Career ( Tribute to All Mothers )

Do you remember the first time you kick while you were on your mom's tummy, unknowingly the labor and the pain it has to take to deliver you? You can't remember those things simply because you were too young. Your first smile, first words, first steps gave her a glowing happiness to her heart. When you were sick with fever, measles, chickenpox or colds, Mom was too worried and rushed you to the doctor and when you felt better and all the sickness were gone, all her anxieties were gone too! A mother's day seems to never ends thinking everything about you: what to cook for tomorrow for your 'baon', helping do your school projects and homeworks, what clothes to wear, etc., etc.. A chance to be a mother is the highest calling a woman could have although there are women who could not have children, still they could be one in some other ways of their choice.We honor HER this Mothers' Day for all she have done to us, all the hardship she made for us. Let us realize the responsibilities that came with being a mother. Good family life is never an accident but always an achievement of a good mother ( good father too!) Many of us took our mothers somewhere they did not need to go, but no matter what, she loves us. Mothers dream for they children and help these dreams come true. She will always be there even when everyone else deserted you. When God gave her the chance to be a mother, He gave her an assignment that will not end until her kids grow up. It is a life long journey and task. Her love is like God's love. She loves us not because we are lovable, but because it is her nature to love. Let us thank our Lord for our mothers, grandmothers, mother-in-laws, our friends' mothers and the rest of the mothers out there who stood up for their kids and family in performing their glorious career - being a MOTHER!


" Honor your father and MOTHER, then you will live long, full life in the land of the Lord your God will give you."
- Exodus 20:12
