The Blessings of this World

Mothers are like roses
that thrive among thones,
beautiful, strong, hardworking
determined, persevering and, most of all,
tolerant.

Mothers listen first before responding;
mothers understand first before tackling
because that which they are dealing with
are a product of their love.

Mothers are much-needed
in this world full of sorrow
where kids are stricken with cold
and calamities.
Mother’s are the blessings of this world.

To be a mother is not merely to have a child out of one’s body. There are lots of women who beget children but just throw them away or mistreat them, because they are not mothers. There’s a woman that no amount of hardship can prevent from raising or nurturing a kid, be it theirs or another’s. That’s the definition of a mother to me.

There’s a sad story in my country about a mother who lacked food and therefore decided to boil a stone to stop her kids from crying and give them the feeling of food cooking while she went away to beg. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒบ A mother is undefeatable.

Happy mother’s day to all ny motherly friends. You’re the blessings of this world. ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ’

Listening is the key to understanding, which is the key to finding solutions.

    This reminds me of an old commercial about rye bread. ‘You don’t have to be Jewish to like Rye Bread.’ And you don’t even I think have to be a woman or a mother to be a good parent.

    I had some wonderful teachers who encouraged my creativity. Better than my own parents. I think parents who want children should take classes on childcare first, to know and understand the responsiblity. Some schools have students pair up and take care of a raw egg as if it were a child… Giving them an idea of just what their future could hold.

    Such a beautiful tribute to mothers. I think the story of stone soup might be found in various forms in different countries. My children and I read a book when they were small (wish I could remember the title) where a stone was placed in the soup and the one who got it in their bowl was able to make a wish. We recreated it with a bright blue stone many, many times over the years. Thank you for reminding me of this precious memory.
